Cheap Web Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are 2 entities you demand so as to launch an online portal. The first one is a domain name that will display your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting package, which is fundamentally the disk space on a web hosting server where the web page files will be situated, plus several more services that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting package are 2 similar, yet separate solutions, and you need them both in order to have an operational web portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name 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 characters long and it includes 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can select the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a particular stretch of time between one and ten years. They may impose more preconditions in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will open your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a particular registrar and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting vendors offer both services and it is more user-friendly to administer all services from one Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are different 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 modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called nameservers. Each provider has at least two nameservers - ns1.hosting.ghanahost.net and ns2.hosting.ghanahost.net, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting vendor or another.
The Necessity for Reliable Website Hosting Services
The moment the domain name is pointed to a certain domain hosting distributor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive various web services. The most important one is that the site files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create email addresses such as [email protected] and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a business site, being online and being able to set up mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that come with a web hosting account. If you run a business site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. That is the reason why you demand a reliable hosting corporation that will offer a fast and steady website hosting service.
