Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 features you need in order to kick off a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is basically the hard disk space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two interconnected, yet separate services, and you require them both in order to have a functioning web page.

What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it involves two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given period of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail other preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain name registered with one registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, even though numerous companies offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one single website hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.geekhost.io and ns2.geekhost.io, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting service provider or another.

The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions

Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail box accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business web page, being online and being permitted to create e-mail box accounts with your domain are the two most fundamental things that come with a web hosting plan. In case you administer a corporate web page – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is the reason why you need a dependable hosting firm that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
