Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are two things you require in order to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your site when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is basically the hard disk storage space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet separate services, and you need both of them to have a running web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the SLD 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 given stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may entail other prerequisites about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will open the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain registered with one provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although many web hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from a single hosting CP user interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different 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 alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.molaxhosting.com and ns2.molaxhosting.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you utilize for your domain name offers you the option to change the NS records and point the domain to one web hosting corporation or another.
The Need of Dependable Hosting Solutions
The moment the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain various web services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail addresses such as [email protected] and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being enabled to use email boxes with your domain name are the two most essential things that you receive with a website hosting package. If you have a corporate website – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or clients. For this reason you demand a reliable hosting firm that will provide a dependable and steady web hosting service.
