Cheap Hosting Services for Your Domain Names
There are two things you demand so as to run a site. The first one is a domain name that will show your web page when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web server where the site files will be located, plus a few more features that are included in it. The domain name and the web hosting account are 2 interconnected, yet different solutions, and you need both of them to have a functioning web site.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the web address for the site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 symbols long and it is made of 2 constituents – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the above example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the Second-Level Domain of the domain to be anything that has not been registered yet, there is a finite number of TLDs to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given spell of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include more prerequisites in regard to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting plan where you have to add it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will show the site files that you have in the account, in other words it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain registered with one company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting distributors provide both solutions and it is more convenient to handle all services from one single web hosting CP tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the web hosting package are different services, you have to point the domain to the web hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to change a given setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named NS records. Each hosting corporation has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.awcwebservices.com and ns2.awcwebservices.com, for instance. The web hosting Control Panel that you have for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the name servers and point the domain to one hosting service provider or another.
The Need of Trustworthy website hosting Services
Once the domain name is pointed to a given domain hosting service provider and is added to their servers, you will get several online services. The most crucial one is that the website files that you host on the server will now be exhibited when you type your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up electronic mails like email@example.com and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being allowed to set up e-mail address accounts with your domain name are the two most significant options that come with a web hosting account. If you have a corporate website – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or clients. This is the reason why you need a reliable hosting service provider that will provide a fast and steady website hosting service.
