Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two things you require so as to establish a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet different services, and you need both of them to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is made of 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may have other requirements with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting plan where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will open the site files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from one and the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting account 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 modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.mtws.net and ns2.mtws.net, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one company or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy web hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting company and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain different web services. The most vital one is that the site files that you keep on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web site, being online and being enabled to create mails with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a hosting account. In case you administer a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you need a stable company that will provide a dependable and steady web hosting service.
