Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your Domains
There are 2 things you need so as to set up a site. The first one is a domain name that will open your site when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is essentially the storage space on a web hosting server where the website files will be situated, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two related, yet separate services, and you require both of them to have a running online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 entities – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular interval of time between one and ten years. They may impose other prerequisites in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to host it. In such a way, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will display your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting firms offer both services and it is more user-friendly to handle all services from the same website hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name servers. Each web hosting company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.smarthostingservices.com and ns2.smarthostingservices.com, for instance. The hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the possibility to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting distributor or another.
The Need of Trustworthy Website Hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a certain domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive a number of online services. The most important one is that the website files that you keep on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailboxes such as firstname.lastname@example.org and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a business online portal, being accessible online and being allowed to create email mailboxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you obtain with a website hosting account. In case you manage a business web portal – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you demand a stable web hosting firm that will supply a fast and steady web hosting solution.
