Cut-Rate Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains


There are 2 entities you need in order to kick off an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 related, yet different solutions, and you need both of them in order to have a functioning online portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: 0.00 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given span of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may include other preconditions with regard to the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to host it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one provider and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting firms provide both services and it is more convenient to handle everything from a single web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each web hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.hostexcel.com and ns2.hostexcel.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the name server records and point the domain name to one hosting firm or another.

The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Solutions

As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will get different web services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you accommodate on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email addresses such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being allowed to set up e-mail addresses with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a web hosting package. If you administer a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is why you demand a dependable hosting firm that will deliver a fast and steady web hosting service.
