Budget Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains


There are two items you need in order to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the data storage space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two related, yet separate solutions, and you demand both of them to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: 0.00 /yr

A domain 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 64 characters long and it is composed of two components – 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, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a set number of TLDs to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may impose more requirements regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will display the files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web page. You can have a domain name registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, although many web hosting corporations offer both services and it is more time-saving to administer all services from the same web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.www.hostcheap.com and ns2.www.hostcheap.com, for example. The hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the option to alter the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.

The Demand for Reliable web hosting Solutions

Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting corporation and is added to their web hosting servers, you will get various online services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the web server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mailboxes like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being allowed to use email addresses with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you run a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. That's why you demand a dependable provider that will deliver a fast and steady website hosting service.
