Cheap Hosting Services for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two features you require in order to own a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a web server where the web site files will be located, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two associated, yet different solutions, and you require them both in order to have a functioning site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it contains two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may have additional prerequisites with respect to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though numerous web hosting companies offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from a single website hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting vendor has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.webmotionhosting.com and ns2.www.webmotionhosting.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the opportunity to change the name servers and point the domain to one web hosting supplier or another.
The Need of Stable web hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will get various online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or an email client to tackle them. Whether you own a personal or a business online portal, being online and being enabled to create email box accounts with your domain are the two most important options that you receive with a web hosting plan. In case you own a business web site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. This is the reason why you demand a stable web hosting service provider that will provide a reliable and steady web hosting service.
