Cheap Hosting Packages for Your Domain Names

There are two entities you need in order to host a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your web site when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a web hosting plan, which is basically the storage space on a server where the web site files will be located, plus a few more services that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting package are 2 interconnected, yet different services, and you demand both of them to have an operational web portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: $9.75 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will choose to be the address for the web portal: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it consists of two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the above instance, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can pick the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and ten years. They may impose additional specifications in relation to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a name and nothing more than that, you demand a website hosting plan where you have to host it. In this way, when you type it in a browser, it will display the site files that you host in the account, i.e. it will display your web site. You can have a domain registered with a certain company and receive the hosting service from another, even though many hosting providers offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from the same hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To accomplish that, you need to modify a particular setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called NS records. Each web hosting supplier has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.unlimitedcloud.ca and ns2.unlimitedcloud.ca, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain gives you the chance to change the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting corporation or another.

The Demand for Reliable Web Hosting Solutions

The moment the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will obtain several services. The most crucial one is that the web site files that you host on the hosting server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up email addresses like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or a mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a business site, being available online and being allowed to use email address accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal options that come with a website hosting package. In case you administer a corporate website – it will identify your business before your visitors or customers. For that reason you demand a trustworthy hosting corporation that will provide a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
