Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are 2 features you require so as to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web page when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is basically the data storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two associated, yet separate services, and you demand them both so as to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may contain more preconditions about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.happyhostinguk.com and ns2.www.happyhostinguk.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the option to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most vital one is that the site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail boxes like [email protected] and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate website, being online and being able to set up e-mail accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a website hosting account. If you manage a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. This is why you need a dependable hosting company that will deliver a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
