Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 items you demand in order to launch a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the storage space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate solutions, and you require both of them to have a working web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain additional stipulations in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to include it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting companies offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.sigmainfinity.com and ns2.sigmainfinity.com, for example. The hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the chance to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one service provider or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will get a number of online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you have on the web server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes like email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you host a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being permitted to create e-mailboxes with your domain are the two most important options that you obtain with a hosting account. If you have a business web site – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you need a dependable web host that will deliver a dependable and steady web hosting service.
