Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are two entities you demand 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 website hosting plan, which is essentially the storage space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two connected, yet different solutions, and you require both of them to have a functioning web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it includes two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular period of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may include more preconditions concerning the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the web site files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a certain registrar and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting distributors provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage everything from one and the same web hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you need to change a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 name servers - ns1.milkywayhosting.com and ns2.milkywayhosting.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the name servers and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.
The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting distributor and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various services. The most important one is that the site files that you host on the web server will now be displayed when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to establish electronic mails like email@example.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to handle them. Whether you host a personal or a business web page, being accessible online and being allowed to set up mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a hosting package. In case you manage a business web site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you require a reliable web hosting distributor that will offer a fast and stable web hosting solution.
