Web hosting (hosting) Domain Registration and Management

Web Hosting and Domain Management are essential elements of a website. In essence, a domain name serves as a website address, as a service. hosting provides space and resources to get the site up and running.

As the two elements work hand in hand, it's critical to understand the differences between the two before creating a website.

Although closely related, web hosting and domain hosting are two services many different. Web hosts store content, such as a website, on servers on the Internet. Domain hosts provide domain names, which are the addresses that help visitors access website content.

Most of the time, the term “web hosting” refers to the company that rents its computers/servers to host a website and provide Internet connectivity so that other users can access the files on the website. A web host provides the space where you can display website content such as text, images and videos.

Anyone can create a website on their computer, but unless your website files are uploaded to a hosting server, no one will be able to access the website. When people type your domain name into their browser's URL, they'll be directed to your site. This is only possible if your website files are stored on a web hosting server.

A domain host provides a domain name, which visitors can use to find the website. A domain name is an address that directs people to the location of a website, but it is not the content that visitors see when they visit the website.

The domain name is not something physical or tangible. It is a string of characters that gives an identity to your website (a name, company or brand). Once you purchase a specific domain, it becomes your property and no one on the internet will have the same domain. This unique string of characters will give your website a distinct identity.
