Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are 2 entities you need so as to open a web site. 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 web hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you demand both of them in order to have a functioning web site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 120 tlds

Prices Starts From: $12.50 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of two components – a Top-Level Domain (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 SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail more stipulations with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosts provide both services and it is more convenient to manage everything from one single website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each company has at least two nameservers - ns1.icanhosting.com and ns2.icanhosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting company or another.

The Demand for Stable web hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will receive various online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business website, being available online and being permitted to create email mailboxes with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you receive with a hosting account. In case you own a business website – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. That is the reason why you require a stable hosting firm that will offer a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
