Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domains
There are 2 items you need in order to own a web page. The first one is a domain name that will open your web page when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is basically the disk storage space on a hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more services that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 associated, yet separate solutions, and you need both of them so as to have a working web page.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 80 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 instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, 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 fixed period of time between 1 and ten years. They may entail additional preconditions regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the website files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting firms offer both services and it is more convenient to administer all services from one and the same web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called nameservers. Each web hosting provider has at least two name servers - ns1.boldalternativehosting.com and ns2.boldalternativehosting.com, for example. The web hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain offers you the option to modify the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting provider or another.
The Necessity for Reliable web hosting Solutions
Once the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive various services. The most essential one is that the site files that you accommodate on the web hosting server will now be shown when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish mail accounts such as firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail client to handle them. Whether you run a personal or a business website, being online and being allowed to set up mailbox accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a website hosting account. If you administer a business online portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients. Therefore you require a reliable hosting distributor that will furnish a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
