Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names
There are 2 entities you require so as to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting package, which is inherently the storage space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both in order to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, 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 name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain number of Top-Level Domains to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose additional requirements in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle everything from a single Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account 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 given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting service provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.wighthosting.info and ns2.wighthosting.info, for example. The CP that you use for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.
The Necessity for Stable Web Hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain various online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you host on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish email accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to use electronic mails with your domain name are the two most important things that you get with a web hosting account. If you manage a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. For this reason you need a dependable hosting company that will deliver a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
