Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 items you demand so as to host a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is basically the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are two associated, yet separate services, and you demand them both to have a working web page.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name 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 can be up to sixty four symbols long and it comprises two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and ten years. They may involve additional preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to include it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will display your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer all services from one website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting vendor has at least two nameservers - ns1.soswebdevelopment.com and ns2.soswebdevelopment.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the option to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.
The Need of Stable web hosting Solutions
The moment the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain several online services. The most essential one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being enabled to create email mailboxes with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you obtain with a website hosting plan. In case you run a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a reliable company that will supply a fast and steady hosting service.
