Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two items you demand in order to host a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the disk space on a web server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet different services, and you require them both in order to have a functioning web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 50 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (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 of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a certain number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may include more requirements regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web page. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting distributors offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from the same website hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.xgen-hosting.com and ns2.www.xgen-hosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the name server records and point the domain to one company or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy website hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most important one is that the web page files that you keep on the server will now be shown when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email address accounts like email@example.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business web site, being online and being allowed to set up email address accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you own a business web page – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you need a trustworthy web hosting supplier that will offer a fast and steady web hosting service.
