Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are 2 things you need in order to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting package, which is primarily the storage space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 connected, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them in order to have an operational online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it involves 2 entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and ten years. They may contain other requirements in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting companies offer both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.domainpiggy.com and ns2.domainpiggy.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the possibility to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.
The Demand for Dependable Web Hosting Solutions
Once 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 crucial one is that the site files that you have on the web hosting server will now be accessible when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish e-mail accounts like email@example.com and use webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being allowed to set up email accounts with your domain name are the two most important things that come with a web hosting plan. In case you administer a business online portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or customers. That's why you demand a trustworthy hosting distributor that will supply a dependable and steady web hosting service.
