Low-Priced Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 items you demand in order to start a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the disk space on a web server where the website files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 linked, yet separate services, and you require both of them in order to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is open 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 certain period of time between 1 and ten years. They may include more requirements concerning the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web site. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting vendors provide both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from one and the same CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.cachaii.com and ns2.cachaii.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain to one web host or another.

The Need of Reliable Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various online services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you host on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to create e-mail boxes with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you manage a business website – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you require a dependable web hosting distributor that will furnish a fast and stable web hosting solution.
