Hosting and Domain meaning


A web hosting service  is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. All information on the site is hosted on powerful servers that provide fast and uninterrupted access to the site and all its information and content. These servers are called hosting, so on the network you can often find the phrase hosting sites or hosting to buy.

A domain is the name of a website, a URL is how to find a website and a website is what people see and interact with when they get there. In other words, when you buy a domain you have purchased the name for your site, but you still need to build the website itself.
