Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names
There are two items you demand in order to launch a web site. The first one is a domain name that will show your online portal when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting account, which is basically the storage space on a web server where the web page files will be situated, plus a few more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet different services, and you need them both in order to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to sixty four symbols long and it is composed of two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of TLDs to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain interval of time between 1 and 10 years. They may contain other preconditions with respect to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting plan where you have to include it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will exhibit the site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosting suppliers offer both solutions and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website 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 achieve that, you have to alter a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.westgatehosting.com and ns2.westgatehosting.com, for example. The Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the possibility to modify the name server records and point the domain to one company or another.
The Demand for Reliable website hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web servers, you will receive various services. The most important one is that the site files that you keep on the server will now be accessible when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish emails such as email@example.com and avail of webmail or an email client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being allowed to use emails with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a website hosting account. If you own a business online portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you demand a stable hosting firm that will furnish a dependable and stable website hosting service.
