Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Top-Level Domains
There are 2 things you need so as to run a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the data storage space on a web server where the website files will be placed, plus several more services that come with it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two associated, yet different services, and you require them both to have a working site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it contains 2 components – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the SLD of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include more stipulations when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting package where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your website. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one web hosting CP interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the web hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name server records. Each web hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.iredhosting.com and ns2.iredhosting.com, for example. The web hosting CP that you utilize for your domain offers you the opportunity to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one hosting vendor or another.
The Need of Stable website hosting Solutions
Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting supplier and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain various online services. The most important one is that the web site files that you host on the server will now be shown when you write your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to set up e-mailbox accounts like [email protected] and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you manage a personal or a business web site, being online and being permitted to set up electronic mailboxes with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a hosting package. In case you administer a corporate site – it will single out your business before your web page visitors or customers. That's why you demand a stable web hosting company that will deliver a reliable and stable web hosting solution.
