Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Domains
There are 2 items you need in order to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be located, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a functioning online portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of two pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a certain 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 certain interval of time between 1 and ten years. They may include other stipulations in regard 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 include it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your website. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and obtain the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting providers provide both solutions and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from one website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name server records. Each web host has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.digicalporter.com and ns2.digicalporter.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one provider or another.
The Need of Stable web hosting Services
As soon as the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain several web services. The most important one is that the web page files that you have on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain name in a browser. You will also be able to set up e-mail boxes like email@example.com and avail of webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you own a personal or a business web site, being accessible online and being permitted to use mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most important options that come with a website hosting account. In case you administer a business online portal – it will single out your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you demand a dependable web hosting distributor that will provide a fast and steady website hosting solution.
