Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains

There are 2 features you need in order to own a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is principally the hard disk space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a running site.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 80 tlds

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose other requirements when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though many hosting companies provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from the same hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.digitalsteer.com and ns2.digitalsteer.com, for example. The CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

The Need of Reliable web hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web servers, you will obtain different online services. The most important one is that the site files that you have on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web portal, being available online and being enabled to use e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you have a business online portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a stable hosting distributor that will provide a dependable and stable web hosting service.
