Cheap Web Hosting Plans for Your Domains

There are 2 items you demand so as to kick off a website. The first one is a domain name that will open your web portal when you type it in a web browser, and the second one is a web hosting plan, which is fundamentally the hard disk space on a web hosting server where the site files will be located, plus several more features that come with it. The domain name and the web hosting plan are two similar, yet separate services, and you demand them both so as to have a working web page.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 80 tlds

Prices Starts From: £10.99 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web page: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain name can be up to sixty four characters long and it involves 2 components – a top-level domain name (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 second-level domain name 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 TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed spell of time between one and ten yrs. They may have more requirements about the registrant.

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting plan where you have to host it. In such a way, when you write it in a browser, it will open the web page files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your online portal. You can have a domain registered with a particular provider and get the hosting service from another, even though many web hosting vendors offer both solutions and it is more time-saving to manage everything from the same CP user interface. Either way, since the domain name registration and the website hosting plan are different services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each service provider has at least 2 nameservers - ns1.www.dataguild.co.uk and ns2.www.dataguild.co.uk, for instance. The website hosting CP that you have for your domain name offers you the possibility to change the NS records and point the domain name to one hosting distributor or another.

The Need of Stable Website Hosting Services

Once the domain is pointed to a specific domain hosting distributor and is added to their servers, you will get various online services. The most crucial one is that the web page files that you keep on the web hosting server will now be available online when you write your domain in a web browser. You will also be able to set up mailboxes such as name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an email client to administer them. Whether you administer a personal or a business site, being online and being enabled to create emails with your domain are the two most essential things that you receive with a website hosting plan. In case you run a business web page – it will identify your business before your web page visitors or clients. For that reason you require a dependable web hosting distributor that will deliver a dependable and stable website hosting solution.
