Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are 2 items you need in order to run an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting plan, which is fundamentally the hard disk storage space on a hosting server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are two interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need both of them to have a running website.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it includes 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between one and ten years. They may entail more stipulations in regard to 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. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific provider and obtain the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more convenient to administer everything from a single web hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting provider has at least 2 name servers - ns1.rapidwebsitehosting.com and ns2.rapidwebsitehosting.com, for example. The Control Panel that you use for your domain name gives you the chance to modify the NS records and point the domain to one hosting corporation or another.
The Demand for Stable website hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email mailbox accounts such as email@example.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate online portal, being online and being able to use email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most essential things that you receive with a hosting package. In case you own a corporate website – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. For that reason you need a dependable company that will provide a fast and steady website hosting service.
