Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your TLDs
There are two features you need so as to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a website hosting package, which is inherently the hard disk space on a hosting server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two connected, yet different services, and you need them both to have a running website.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is composed of 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain name to be anything that is available for registration, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to pick from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between one and 10 yrs. They may entail additional requirements in regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a web hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will exhibit the website files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your web site. You can have a domain registered with a certain registrar and receive the hosting service from another, even though many service providers offer both services and it is more convenient to handle all services from the same web hosting CP GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you need to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named nameservers. Each hosting firm has at least two nameservers - ns1.smartpurplecloud.com and ns2.smartpurplecloud.com, for example. The CP that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting corporation or another.
The Necessity for Stable website hosting Services
As soon as the domain name is pointed to a specific domain hosting corporation and is added to their servers, you will receive several online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create email address accounts such as email@example.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a corporate site, being online and being able to use mailboxes with your domain are the two most important options that come with a web hosting package. In case you run a corporate site – it will represent your business before your website visitors or customers. This is why you need a reliable hosting provider that will furnish a fast and stable web hosting solution.
