Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 things you require in order to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the data storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two related, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have an operational site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 100 tlds

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may have additional prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although many companies offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from one single website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.raintreehosting.com and ns2.raintreehosting.com, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain to one hosting company or another.

The Necessity for Dependable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their web servers, you will receive a number of services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mails such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a business online portal, being online and being enabled to set up email mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a web hosting package. If you manage a business online portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. For this reason you require a stable hosting provider that will offer a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
