Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two items you demand in order to set up a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a hosting package, which is inherently the disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet separate services, and you demand both of them in order to have a functioning web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it involves two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain 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 fixed interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may contain more requirements in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although many hosting firms provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from one single web hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.lumenhost.com and ns2.lumenhost.com, for example. The hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain name offers you the chance to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one web host or another.
The Need of Reliable web hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different web services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you accommodate on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or an email client to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being available online and being able to set up email mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most essential things that you obtain with a web hosting plan. If you administer a corporate site – it will identify your business before your website visitors or customers. This is the reason why you require a stable hosting firm that will furnish a fast and stable hosting service.
