Domain Vs Hosting

 

Domain Vs Hosting:

Domain names and web hosting are two peculiar services. Think of a domain name as a street address that helps people find and access your website’s location. However, they work together to make websites possible. It's a digital address as well, your website will have files and code that will take up space and will need to be stored. Web hosting is the certain space on a computer (server) where all of your website files are stored, including HTML, documents, and media. If you consider your website as a house and your domain name as the address, web hosting would be the actual property.

Domain Domain Names and Domain Registration :

A domain name works like an address people use to find your website on the Internet. People will type it in their web browser’s address bar to access your site.

Every website and server on the Internet is assigned a string of numbers called an IP address. However, since it’s hard to memorize numbers, domain names were invented.

A domain name consists of a second-level and top-level domain (TLD). Second level domains are the words or phrases that you come up with, while top-level domains are the extensions that follow. For example, in the case of google.com, the second-level domain is google, and .com is the TLD.

To have the rights to a custom domain name, you need to register it to a domain name registrar – it is a company or an organization that sells and manages domain name registrations.

Domain registrars are listed under ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) and they report back to it whenever there’s a purchase by editing the database with the information of the domain ownership.

Web Hosting:

Web hosting services allow you to publish your website on the Internet. Web hosting providers store your website data on their servers and sends that information to your visitors’ web browsers when they type in your domain name into the address bar.
Beginner-friendly tools are provided for all users, so you can manage your website with little to no technical skills. Most hosting providers provide customer support, server maintenance, auto-installers, and website builders to help you manage your website more easily.
