Cut-Rate Hosting Solutions for Your Domains


There are 2 features you require in order to have a web page. The first one is a domain name that will exhibit your website when you type it in a browser, and the second one is a website hosting account, which is basically the data storage space on a web hosting server where the web site files will be situated, plus a few more features that it is offering. The domain and the web hosting plan are two associated, yet separate solutions, and you need them both in order to have a functioning site.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 140 tlds

Prices Starts From: 0.00 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric combination that you will choose to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for example. A domain can be up to 64 characters long and it includes 2 constituents – a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). In the aforementioned instance, my-best-domain is the second-level domain name, and .com is the top-level domain name. While you can choose the SLD of the domain to be anything that is free to register, there is a set number of top-level domain names to select from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a fixed stretch of time between 1 and 10 yrs. They may impose more stipulations about the registrant.

Domain Web Hosting Solutions

As the domain is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you demand a hosting account where you have to accommodate it. In such a way, when you type it in a web browser, it will display the files that you have in the account, i.e. it will exhibit your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a specific provider and receive the hosting service from another, even though lots of web hosting suppliers provide both services and it is more time-saving to handle everything from a single website hosting Control Panel interface. Either way, because the domain registration and the website hosting plan are separate services, you have to point the domain to the web server where it will be added as hosted. To achieve that, you have to alter a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the so-called NS records. Each hosting firm has at least 2 name servers - ns1.webhosting.maxima.com.ng and ns2.webhosting.maxima.com.ng, for example. The website hosting CP that you use for your domain name gives you the opportunity to modify the name server records and point the domain to one web hosting distributor or another.

The Demand for Reliable website hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a particular domain hosting vendor and is added to their web hosting servers, you will obtain a number of web services. The most essential one is that the website files that you have on the server will now be displayed when you type your domain in a browser. You will also be able to establish mail address accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and avail of webmail or a mail client to manage them. Whether you have a personal or a corporate web site, being accessible online and being able to use email accounts with your domain name are the two most cardinal things that you get with a hosting package. If you have a business web page – it will represent your business before your web page visitors or customers. This is why you require a stable service provider that will offer a dependable and steady web hosting solution.
