Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Top-Level Domain Names
There are 2 things you require so as to kick off a web site. The first one is a domain name that will open your website when you type it in a web browser, and the other one is a hosting package, which is primarily the data storage space on a hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 similar, yet different services, and you need both of them to have a working web site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination 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 consists of two parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned instance, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a fixed number of Top-Level Domains to choose from. The Top-Level Domains can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and 10 years. They may include other prerequisites with regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting package where you have to add it. Thus, when you type it in a browser, it will show the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will show your web site. You can have a domain name registered with a given provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of hosts offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage all services from one and the same hosting Control Panel user interface. Either way, since 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 change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting service provider has at least two name servers - ns1.netupafrica.com and ns2.netupafrica.com, for instance. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the option to alter the nameservers and point the domain to one web host or another.
The Need of Dependable website hosting Services
The moment the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will get different online services. The most vital one is that the site files that you have on the web server will now be shown when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish e-mailbox accounts like email@example.com and use webmail or a mail user agent to manage them. Whether you administer a personal or a business website, being accessible online and being permitted to use mailboxes with your domain name are the two most fundamental options that you obtain with a website hosting package. In case you administer a corporate site – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. Therefore you require a trustworthy host that will furnish a dependable and steady website hosting service.
