Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are 2 things you need so as to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two similar, yet different solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 120 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain 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 fixed span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain other prerequisites concerning the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and get the hosting service from another, even though numerous providers offer both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from one web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.advantagehostingsolutions.com and ns2.advantagehostingsolutions.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting company or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy web hosting Services
The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will get various online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being permitted to use email address accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a web hosting account. In case you run a corporate site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is the reason why you need a reliable hosting provider that will deliver a dependable and steady web hosting service.
