Cheap Hosting Plans for Your Domain Names
There are 2 entities you need in order to launch a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your online portal when you write it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting plan, which is basically the data storage space on a server where the website files will be located, plus several more services that it is offering. The domain name and the web hosting package are two related, yet separate solutions, and you demand them both so as to have a running web site.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 80 tlds
A domain name is the alpha-numeric combination that you will select to be the web address for the website: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to 64 symbols long and it comprises two pieces – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the Second-Level Domain, and .com is the Top-Level Domain. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a finite number of top-level domain names to choose from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain span of time between 1 and 10 years. They may entail additional stipulations about the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting account where you have to add it. In this way, when you write it in a web browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, in other words it will show your site. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and obtain the hosting service from another, even though a lot of web hosting vendors provide both solutions and it is more time-saving to handle all services from one single web hosting Control Panel tool. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting package are separate services, you have to point the domain name to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to modify a specific setting, or record, of the domain name - the commonly named nameservers. Each company has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.platinumwebservices.net and ns2.platinumwebservices.net, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain gives you the option to alter the name server records and point the domain name to one web hosting company or another.

Once the domain is pointed to a given domain hosting corporation and is added to their web servers, you will receive a number of services.

You will also be able to establish electronic mailboxes such as email@example.com and avail of webmail or an e-mail client to tackle them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web page, being available online and being allowed to set up e-mail addresses with your domain are the two most important options that you get with a web hosting package. In case you have a corporate web portal – it will represent your business before your website visitors or clients.
