Cheap Web Hosting Solutions for Your TLDs
There are two things you need in order to host a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will open your web site when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk storage space on a server where the site files will be placed, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two related, yet separate services, and you need both of them to have a working online portal.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a certain number of top-level domain names to select from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may have more prerequisites when it comes to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you require a web hosting plan where you have to add it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will show the files that you have in the account, in other words it will open your website. You can have a domain name registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, even though a lot of hosting distributors offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named NS records. Each company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.sierrawebhosting.com and ns2.sierrawebhosting.com, for instance. The hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to alter the name servers and point the domain name to one web host or another.
The Need of Stable web hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting service provider and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain different online services. The most important one is that the site files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to set up email boxes like firstname.lastname@example.org and utilize webmail or a mail user agent to handle them. Whether you have a personal or a business site, being available online and being able to use mail accounts with your domain are the two most pivotal things that you get with a web hosting package. In case you own a business web site – it will identify your business before your web site visitors or clients. Therefore you need a stable service provider that will furnish a dependable and stable hosting solution.
