Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you need in order to start a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two connected, yet different solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a running site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose additional specifications in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting distributors offer both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from one web hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.chostit.com and ns2.chostit.com, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.
The Need of Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of services. The most important one is that the site files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mails such as email@example.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being enabled to create email mailbox accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal things that come with a website hosting account. If you have a corporate site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you require a dependable web host that will offer a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
