Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs
There are two entities you need so as to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is essentially the hard disk space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you require them both so as to have a working site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set 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 spell of time between one and ten years. They may include other requirements with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the content that you host in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of hosting distributors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.idea-ec.com and ns2.idea-ec.com, for instance. The CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to change the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting company or another.
The Need of Stable Website Hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their web servers, you will receive several online services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be displayed when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business web site, being available online and being allowed to create e-mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you get with a website hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate web page – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. That is why you require a trustworthy hosting firm that will furnish a fast and stable web hosting service.
