Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains

There are two features you demand so as to run a web site. The first one is a domain name that will display your web site when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is primarily the hard disk storage space on a server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are two associated, yet different solutions, and you demand both of them in order to have a working web portal.

What is a Domain Name?

We offer more than 90 tlds

Prices Starts From: 0.00 /yr

A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will pick to be the address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it consists of two constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between 1 and ten years. They may involve other specifications about the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting package where you have to accommodate it. Thus, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the content that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your website. You can have a domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many providers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to manage everything from one hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to modify a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named name servers. Each hosting company has at least 2 name servers - ns1.ebaseafrica.com and ns2.ebaseafrica.com, for example. The website hosting Control Panel that you utilize for your domain gives you the option to change the NS records and point the domain to one host or another.

The Need of Reliable Hosting Services

The moment the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain different online services. The most essential one is that the web site files that you accommodate on the hosting server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email mailbox accounts such as name@my-best-domain.com and utilize webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a business online portal, being available online and being enabled to set up e-mail address accounts with your domain are the two most cardinal things that you receive with a web hosting package. In case you run a corporate web portal – it will single out your business before your visitors or clients. This is the reason why you demand a dependable hosting supplier that will supply a fast and stable hosting service.
