Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 features you need in order to kick off an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both to have a working site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may contain additional stipulations with respect to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting service providers provide both services and it is more convenient to administer all services from the same web hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.www.xgen-hosting.com and ns2.www.xgen-hosting.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you host on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business web portal, being accessible online and being able to create mailboxes with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a hosting plan. If you have a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a reliable hosting company that will furnish a reliable and steady hosting solution.
