Cheap Web Hosting Packages for Your Top-Level Domains
There are two features you need so as to own a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will show your web site when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a website hosting package, which is essentially the hard disk storage space on a web server where the site files will be placed, plus a few more services that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting account are two connected, yet different services, and you need both of them to have a functioning website.
What is a Domain?
We offer more than 70 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the web address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it is made of two parts – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can pick the SLD of the domain name to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of TLDs to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain period of time between 1 and 10 years. They may include additional requirements in relation to the registrant.

As the domain is just a name and nothing more than that, you need a website hosting package where you have to include it. Thus, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web site files that you have in the account, i.e. it will open your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a given registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although lots of web hosting suppliers provide both solutions and it is more convenient to administer all services from one website hosting CP tool. Either way, since the domain registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to alter a given setting, or record, of the domain name - the so-called name servers. Each web hosting company has at least two nameservers - ns1.argohosting.net and ns2.argohosting.net, for example. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the opportunity to change the nameservers and point the domain name to one web hosting firm or another.
The Demand for Dependable Hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a concrete domain hosting service provider and is added to their web servers, you will obtain a number of web services. The most vital one is that the site files that you keep on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to establish email address accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org and use webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you manage a personal or a corporate website, being online and being enabled to create e-mails with your domain are the two most cardinal options that you get with a website hosting account. If you host a corporate site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. That's why you require a stable web hosting provider that will provide a reliable and stable website hosting solution.
