Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two features you need in order to own a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a hosting plan, which is inherently the disk space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are 2 associated, yet different solutions, and you need them both in order to have a working web page.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it contains 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail additional specifications concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting account where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, although numerous hosting firms offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting corporation has at least two name servers - ns1.www.jb1hosting.com and ns2.www.jb1hosting.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the opportunity to modify the NS records and point the domain to one web host or another.
The Need of Dependable web hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of services. The most vital one is that the website files that you keep on the hosting server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create email mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being enabled to create mail accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a web hosting plan. In case you administer a business website – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or clients. That is why you need a trustworthy hosting corporation that will provide a reliable and stable website hosting service.
