Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two things you need so as to establish a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two linked, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a functioning web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of 2 components – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail other specifications with respect to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting providers provide both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from one single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan 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 change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each web hosting distributor has at least two name servers - ns1.bluegrapehost.com and ns2.bluegrapehost.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the chance to change the nameservers and point the domain to one web hosting service provider or another.
The Necessity for Dependable Web Hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting company and is added to their servers, you will obtain various web services. The most vital one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mails such as email@example.com and use webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you own a personal or a business web page, being available online and being allowed to create email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most important options that you obtain with a hosting account. If you own a business web portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is why you demand a reliable web hosting company that will offer a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
