Cheap Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names
There are two things you demand in order to start a web portal. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you write it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is fundamentally the disk storage space on a web server where the web site files will be situated, plus several more features that come with it. The domain and the web hosting package are two related, yet separate services, and you need them both in order to have an operational web portal.
What is a Domain Name?
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will pick to be the address for the online portal: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to sixty four characters long and it is composed of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned example, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the TLD. While you can select the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that has not been taken yet, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to pick from. The top-level domain names can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a given stretch of time between one and 10 years. They may contain other specifications with regard to the registrant.

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a web hosting account where you have to host it. Thus, when you type it in a web browser, it will show the web page files that you host in the account, in other words it will display your site. You can have a domain registered with a specific registrar and receive the hosting service from another, although a lot of web hosting service providers provide both services and it is more user-friendly to manage all services from one and the same website hosting Control Panel GUI. Either way, because the domain name registration and the website hosting account are different services, you have to point the domain name to the server where it will be added as hosted. To perform that, you have to change a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each web hosting supplier has at least two name servers - ns1.gulfhostgroup.com and ns2.gulfhostgroup.com, for instance. The website hosting Control Panel that you use for your domain gives you the option to modify the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting firm or another.
The Demand for Dependable web hosting Services
Once the domain is pointed to a particular domain hosting firm and is added to their hosting servers, you will receive several services. The most vital one is that the website files that you have on the web server will now be displayed when you type your domain name in a web browser. You will also be able to create e-mails like firstname.lastname@example.org and make use of webmail or a mail user agent to tackle them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate site, being available online and being able to create e-mailboxes with your domain name are the two most pivotal things that you receive with a website hosting package. In case you host a business web portal – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. Therefore you need a dependable hosting firm that will supply a reliable and steady website hosting solution.
