Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two items you need so as to kick off a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is basically the data storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate solutions, and you need them both so as to have a running web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 120 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of TLDs to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may have more specifications with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with a given company and receive the hosting service from another, although many web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from one and the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting distributor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.digitpulse.com and ns2.digitpulse.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.
The Need of Reliable Web Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will obtain various services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you have on the server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being permitted to create mail addresses with your domain name are the two most essential things that you get with a website hosting package. If you run a business web portal – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is the reason why you require a dependable hosting supplier that will deliver a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
