Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 items you demand so as to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet different solutions, and you require both of them to have an operational web page.

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between 1 and ten years. They may include other preconditions about the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your website. You can have a domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.hermeshost.net and ns2.hermeshost.net, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain offers you the chance to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Need of Reliable website hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive different online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you have on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to set up email mailboxes with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a web hosting account. If you run a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a trustworthy hosting distributor that will deliver a fast and stable web hosting service.
