Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 items you demand so as to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the data storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet different services, and you need them both to have a running 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 address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include other preconditions concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain registered with a given provider and get the hosting service from another, although many web hosts provide both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from the same website hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.just-hosts.com and ns2.just-hosts.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one hosting firm or another.
The Demand for Reliable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting vendor and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the site files that you keep on the web server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email address accounts such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web site, being online and being allowed to use mailboxes with your domain are the two most important things that you receive with a web hosting plan. If you own a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. That's why you require a stable hosting vendor that will offer a dependable and stable web hosting solution.
