Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two entities you require so as to open a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is basically the storage space on a hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need them both to have an operational web site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (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 is available for registration, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed span of time between 1 and ten yrs. They may entail more stipulations 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 accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the web site files that you host in the account, in other words it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with a given company and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting service providers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to administer everything from one and the same CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.pchelper.com and ns2.pchelper.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the chance to alter the name servers and point the domain to one company or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy Website Hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to create e-mails with your domain are the two most important things that you obtain with a web hosting package. In case you manage a corporate online portal – it will single out your business before your website visitors or clients. For that reason you demand a stable hosting distributor that will supply a reliable and steady website hosting service.
