Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Domains
There are two entities you need so as to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is inherently the disk storage space on a web hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two related, yet separate services, and you need both of them so as 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 select to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a set number of top-level domain names to pick 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 10 years. They may involve more stipulations about the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web content that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web portal. You can have a domain registered with a given company and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one website hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to alter a specific setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.redrockhosts.com and ns2.redrockhosts.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the possibility to change the name server records and point the domain to one hosting supplier or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain different services. The most essential one is that the site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email box accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you run a personal or a corporate website, being online and being permitted to create e-mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that you get with a hosting plan. In case you have a business web site – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. For that reason you require a dependable hosting firm that will supply a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
