Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are two items you need so as to run a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a server where the site files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 associated, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose additional requirements with respect to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a given registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from one single website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.billixx.host and ns2.billixx.host, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name offers you the option to change the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Trustworthy Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different web services. The most essential one is that the website files that you keep on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business web site, being online and being able to use e-mails with your domain are the two most significant things that you receive with a website hosting plan. If you administer a corporate web site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you need a trustworthy hosting company that will furnish a dependable and stable hosting service.
