Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 entities you demand so as to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting account, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both in order to have a functioning web site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web site: 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 name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail more stipulations regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add 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 exhibit your website. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting distributors provide both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting company has at least two name servers - ns1.hostcheetah.net and ns2.hostcheetah.net, for example. The CP that you use for your domain offers you the option to change the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting service provider or another.
The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will receive several online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up mail addresses like email@example.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web portal, being online and being allowed to create emails with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you manage a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. That is why you require a trustworthy web hosting firm that will offer a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
