Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are two entities you need in order to have a website. The first one is a domain name that will display your website when you write it in a web browser, and the other one is a web hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a hosting server where the web page files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting package are two interconnected, yet different services, and you require them both so as to have a working website.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain can be up to sixty four symbols long and it consists of 2 parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can pick the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is open for registration, there is a set 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 stretch of time between one and ten yrs. They may involve additional preconditions with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you require a website hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will display the website files that you host in the account, i.e. it will open your web portal. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, although numerous providers provide both services and it is more convenient to manage all services from one and the same website hosting CP GUI. Either way, since the domain 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 perform that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.hostsik.tk and ns2.hostsik.tk, for instance. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name offers you the opportunity to alter the NS records and point the domain to one host or another.
The Demand for Trustworthy Website Hosting Solutions
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will get various web services. The most important one is that the web site files that you keep on the hosting server will now be available online when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mail addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you run a personal or a business web page, being available online and being able to use mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most important options 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 customers. For this reason you demand a reliable host that will provide a fast and stable website hosting service.
