Cut-Price Web Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domain Names


There are two things you need in order to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a web server where the website files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate solutions, and you need them both to have an operational online portal.

What is a Domain?

A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two components – 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 name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between one and 10 yrs. They may contain other preconditions regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting corporations offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one single web hosting CP user interface. 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 perform that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.axcloud.host and ns2.axcloud.host, for example. The web hosting CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.

The Demand for Reliable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting firm and is added to their servers, you will get different online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail box accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web portal, being online and being enabled to use mails with your domain name are the two most essential things that come with a hosting plan. In case you manage a corporate web portal – it will identify your business before your website visitors or clients. This is why you need a stable web hosting company that will deliver a fast and stable web hosting service.
