Budget Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two features you demand in order to host a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the web site:, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may include other prerequisites in relation to the registrant.

Domain Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, in other words 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 a lot of hosts provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the 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 alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - and, for instance. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.

The Necessity for Trustworthy Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you accommodate on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails such as and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being enabled to create email accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you receive with a website hosting plan. If you host a business website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. This is the reason why you need a reliable hosting service provider that will supply a reliable and stable web hosting service.
