Low-Cost Hosting Solutions for Your Domain Names


There are 2 things you demand so as to open a web page. The first one is a domain name that will show your web portal when you write it in a browser, and the other one is a website hosting account, which is basically the hard disk space on a hosting server where the site files will be placed, plus several more features that are included in it. The domain and the web hosting plan are two linked, yet different solutions, and you need them both to have a running online portal.

What is a Domain?

We offer more than 80 tlds

Prices Starts From: C$18.05 /yr

A domain is the alpha-numeric name that you will select to be the address for the web site: my-best-domain.com, for instance. A domain name can be up to 64 characters long and it is made of 2 parts – a top-level domain name (TLD) and a second-level domain name (SLD). In the abovementioned illustration, my-best-domain is the SLD, and .com is the TLD. While you can choose the second-level domain name of the domain to be anything that is open for registration, there is a fixed number of top-level domain names to choose from. The TLDs can be generic (gTLDs) or country-code (ccTLDs), and can be registered for a certain spell of time between one and 10 years. They may contain additional stipulations regarding the registrant.

Domain Name Web Hosting Services

As the domain name is just a hostname and nothing more than that, you need a hosting package where you have to accommodate it. In this way, when you write it in a browser, it will display the web page files that you host in the account, i.e. it will show your web page. You can have a domain name registered with a specific company and get the hosting service from another, although many hosting corporations provide both services and it is more user-friendly to administer everything from the same website hosting CP user interface. Either way, since the domain registration and the web hosting account are separate services, you have to point the domain to the hosting server where it will be added as hosted. To do that, you need to modify a certain setting, or record, of the domain - the commonly named name server records. Each hosting vendor has at least two name servers - ns1.canada.raidlayer.com and ns2.canada.raidlayer.com, for instance. The web hosting CP that you use for your domain offers you the chance to modify the nameservers and point the domain to one company or another.

The Demand for Dependable website hosting Services

Once the domain name is pointed to a concrete domain hosting corporation and is added to their hosting servers, you will obtain a number of online services. The most crucial one is that the site files that you have on the web server will now be exhibited when you write your domain in a browser. You will also be able to create mail accounts like name@my-best-domain.com and make use of webmail or an e-mail client to administer them. Whether you host a personal or a corporate web portal, being accessible online and being enabled to use mailboxes with your domain name are the two most important options that you get with a web hosting package. If you run a business site – it will represent your business before your web site visitors or customers. For this reason you require a reliable company that will furnish a dependable and steady website hosting solution.
