Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two features you need so as to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is primarily the disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 linked, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a working site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may involve other stipulations concerning the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the website files that you host in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting service providers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one and the same CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.theduck.host and ns2.theduck.host, for example. The hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the option to change the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting provider or another.
The Need of Dependable web hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you have on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web portal, being available online and being enabled to set up mail address accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you get with a website hosting package. In case you manage a business web page – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you need a dependable web hosting provider that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting service.
