Web Hosting and Domain Management are essential elements of a site. In essence, a domain name serves as the address of a website, while a domain name service serves as the address of a web site. hosting provides space and resources to get the site up and running.
Since the two elements work side by side, it is critical to understand the differences between the two before creating a website.
Although closely related, web hosting and domain hosting are two services different. Web hosts store content, such as a website, on Internet servers. Domain hosts provide domain names, which are the addresses that help visitors access the site's content.
Most often, the term "web hosting" refers to the company that rents out its computers/servers to store a website and provide Internet connectivity so that other users can access the files on the site. A web host provides the space where you can display the content of the site, such as text, images, and videos.
Anyone can create a website on their computer, but unless the files for your site are uploaded to a hosting server, no one will be able to access the site. When people type your domain name into their browser's URL, they will be directed to your site. This is only possible if your site 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 website location, but it is not the content that visitors see when they visit the website.
A domain name is not something physical or tangible. It is a string of characters that gives your website an identity (a name, a company or a brand name). Once you have acquired a specific domain name, it becomes your property and no one else on the Internet will have the same domain name. This unique string of characters will give your website a distinct identity.
