Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names

There are 2 entities you require in order to open a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting account, which is fundamentally the hard disk storage space on a server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 related, yet separate services, and you need both of them in order to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 80 tlds

Prices Starts From: $14.29 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between one and 10 years. They may include additional prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will exhibit the content that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your site. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting corporations provide both services and it is more user-friendly to handle everything from the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.weblakay.com and ns2.weblakay.com, for example. The hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one company or another.

The Demand for Stable website hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting firm and is added to their web servers, you will receive several online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up mails like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business site, being available online and being allowed to create email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most important things that you receive with a website hosting package. In case you run a business online portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is the reason why you need a stable provider that will supply a reliable and steady web hosting solution.
