Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you require so as to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is essentially the data storage space on a web server where the web page files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting account are two related, yet different solutions, and you need them both so as to have a functioning web 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 sixty four symbols long and it consists of two entities – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may contain more requirements concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the web content that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web page. You can have a domain registered with a certain provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although numerous service providers offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one and the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web 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 modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.gecwebservers.com and ns2.gecwebservers.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.
The Necessity for Dependable website hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create electronic mail accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business site, being available online and being enabled to set up emails with your domain are the two most important things that come with a website hosting package. In case you run a business site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. This is why you need a reliable web host that will provide a dependable and stable hosting service.
