Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 entities you need so as to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 related, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have an operational web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it comprises two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between one and ten yrs. They may entail more stipulations regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous hosting providers provide both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting corporation has at least two nameservers - ns1.idcahosting.com and ns2.idcahosting.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting vendor or another.
The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their servers, you will receive several web services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail addresses such as [email protected] and utilize webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business site, being accessible online and being able to set up email accounts with your domain are the two most essential options that come with a hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate online portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you require a stable web hosting distributor that will provide a fast and steady website hosting solution.
