Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you require in order to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the hard disk storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both to have a working online portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 80 tlds

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may impose additional specifications with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous web hosts provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from one and the same CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.mintahhosting.com and ns2.mintahhosting.com, for example. The hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.

The Need of Stable website hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting supplier and is added to their servers, you will get various online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business site, being online and being enabled to set up e-mail box accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that come with a web hosting package. In case you run a business web page – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is why you require a trustworthy hosting distributor that will provide a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
