Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 things you need so as to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is primarily the data storage space on a web server where the web site files will be placed, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have a running web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it comprises 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and ten years. They may have more prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosts provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting firm has at least 2 name servers - ns1.dreamhost.pro and ns2.dreamhost.pro, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to change the nameservers and point the domain to one provider or another.
The Demand for Reliable website hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail boxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate web page, being online and being able to use e-mail box accounts with your domain name are the two most important things that come with a website hosting plan. In case you host a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a reliable provider that will supply a fast and steady website hosting solution.
