Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two things you require in order to launch an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is principally the storage space on a web server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two related, yet different services, and you require them both so as to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it involves two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may involve other preconditions concerning the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting service providers offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from a single Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan 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 have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.mtws.net and ns2.mtws.net, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain to one company or another.

The Demand for Stable Web Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting company and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mailbox accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being enabled to set up e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a website hosting account. If you host a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is why you require a trustworthy hosting service provider that will offer a reliable and stable website hosting service.
