Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two entities you need so as to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is inherently the data storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two related, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both in order to have a running website.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name 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 sixty four symbols long and it involves 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may impose more requirements with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many hosting service providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate 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 alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.fasttuna.com and ns2.fasttuna.com, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will obtain several online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mail accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you administer a personal or a business website, being available online and being able to set up e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most important options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you administer a business web portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. That is why you need a dependable web hosting supplier that will provide a reliable and steady hosting service.
