Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are 2 features you demand in order to open an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet different services, and you demand them both so as to have a running web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between one and ten years. They may include other stipulations in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though many providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.affordablewebhostingus.com and ns2.affordablewebhostingus.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the option to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting supplier or another.
The Demand for Reliable Web Hosting Services
The moment the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get a number of services. The most important one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email box accounts such as email@example.com and use webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being permitted to use mail address accounts with your domain are the two most essential options that come with a website hosting package. If you manage a business web portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a trustworthy web hosting firm that will furnish a fast and stable website hosting solution.
