Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are two items you demand in order to start a web site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two related, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail other prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of providers offer both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.bitlife.host and ns2.bitlife.host, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the opportunity to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.
The Demand for Stable Website Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get several web services. The most important one is that the site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web site, being online and being enabled to use mail addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that come with a website hosting account. In case you host a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you require a reliable service provider that will deliver a reliable and stable website hosting service.
