Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domains
There are two items you require in order to launch an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a hosting account, which is essentially the storage space on a server where the website files will be situated, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as to have an operational site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination 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 symbols long and it consists of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between 1 and 10 years. They may have additional preconditions about the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one registrar and get the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from a single website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting firm has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.hamiltonhosting.net and ns2.hamiltonhosting.net, for instance. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain various online services. The most essential one is that the web page files that you have on the hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create emails such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you own a personal or a business web site, being available online and being enabled to use e-mail boxes with your domain are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you own a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is why you need a reliable provider that will offer a fast and stable hosting solution.
