Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names
There are two things you require in order to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the disk space on a server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two connected, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have a running web page.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is composed of two entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed interval of time between one and 10 yrs. They may include other specifications with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your website. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosts offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name server records. Each provider has at least two name servers - ns1.wantok.click and ns2.wantok.click, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain offers you the possibility to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.
The Necessity for Reliable website hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several web services. The most important one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mailbox accounts like email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being enabled to create mails with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you receive with a website hosting package. If you own a business website – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is the reason why you require a stable hosting corporation that will supply a reliable and steady website hosting service.
