Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are 2 entities you demand in order to open a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is fundamentally the data storage space on a server where the site files will be placed, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 connected, yet different services, and you demand them both so as to have a working website.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 90 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given interval of time between one and ten yrs. They may impose other specifications in regard to the registrant.
Domain Name Hosting Services
As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.achemahost.com and ns2.www.achemahost.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain offers you the option to change the NS records and point the domain to one company or another.
The Necessity for Trustworthy website hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will receive several web services. The most essential one is that the site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail box accounts such as email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being enabled to set up e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most important things that come with a web hosting account. If you manage a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your visitors or clients. That is the reason why you demand a reliable hosting distributor that will provide a fast and stable website hosting solution.
