Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two items you demand in order to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting account, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web page files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two associated, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose more prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although many hosting companies provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from one and the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each host has at least 2 name servers - ns1.websitehandyman.co.uk and ns2.websitehandyman.co.uk, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.
The Demand for Stable Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive a number of services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mails such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a business web site, being online and being permitted to create email address accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental things that you get with a web hosting plan. If you run a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. For this reason you need a stable web hosting distributor that will furnish a dependable and steady hosting solution.
