Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are 2 items you require so as to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a web server where the site files will be situated, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet separate services, and you demand both of them so as to have a functioning web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 pieces – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may impose additional requirements regarding the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting account where you have to host it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your online portal. You can have a domain name registered with one company and receive the hosting service from another, although numerous companies offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle everything from one web hosting CP interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to change a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each host has at least two name servers - ns1.tugoats.com and ns2.tugoats.com, for example. The CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting provider or another.
The Need of Trustworthy web hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will receive different web services. The most vital one is that the web site files that you host on the web hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail accounts like email@example.com and utilize webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to create mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most fundamental things that you receive with a web hosting plan. In case you administer a business web page – it will represent your business before your visitors or customers. For this reason you demand a stable host that will supply a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
