Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Domains
There are two items you require in order to kick off 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 second one is a website hosting account, which is principally the data storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be placed, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 related, yet different services, and you need them both so as to have a functioning web site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may include other prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to accommodate 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 open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular company and get the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting service providers provide both services and it is more time-saving to manage everything from the same website hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package 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 modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each hosting firm has at least two name servers - ns1.ackenhost.com and ns2.ackenhost.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name offers you the opportunity to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting service provider or another.
The Need of Dependable website hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will get a number of services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you have on the web hosting server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mailboxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or a mail client to tackle them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being available online and being allowed to use e-mailboxes with your domain are the two most significant options that you receive with a website hosting account. If you run a corporate web site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is why you require a reliable hosting supplier that will deliver a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
