The Difference Between A Domain Name And Web Hosting

Domain Name

A domain name is similar to the address of your business. Web hosting, on the other hand, is the space of your business (office, workshop etc) where you place your furniture, tools and equipments.

Instead of street name and postcode, set of words or/and numbers are used for the website address.

The same goes with hosting, computer hard disk and computer memory are used instead of instead of bricks and steel for storing and processing data files.

By registering a domain, you will gain sole ownership and rights to the name of your site. No one else in the market has the access to the actual name of that particular domain besides you.

Just because you have a domain does not mean that you are ready to serve your website to the world.

After you register your domain name with domain name registrar such as iDomainCentrel.com.au, You got your business address, now it’s the time to prepare your workshop/office space.
