Difference between domain name and website address


     For beginners in the web world and home based business, you may be confused by some terms such as website and domain name. So, the first question that we should ask, is there a difference between the terms website and Domain? Although website and domain name are linked to each other, they are completely different.

What is a domain name

   Domain name, which is also known as web address, is the title that is entered in browser's search box to find a website. Installing a web site is based on choosing a perfect domain name. In addition to that, you can create a professional email address by your domain.

What do we mean by web hosting


    To understand what does host company mean and how does it work, imagine that these hosting companies are Malls that contain several shops inside, to install your own store; you will occupy a space in this mall with a specific commercial name. As well as hosting company, it enables you to reserve a space on its servers to save your files and data thus enabling visitors to browse these data as we can see in the following picture.

     Since you have a registered domain, you can transfer your files and data with the same domain name to another hosting company. Going back to the store example, which was installed at that mall, one day you decided to change its location and open it in another mall but with the same brand name; the same happening with your registered domain and data.

      There are many hosting companies that let you occupy spaces to save your files and data on their servers with the same registered domain name, such as Bluehost , Hostgator  and many others. Therefore, you have to decide which hosting company is the best to deal with when using wordpress plat form. Keep in mind that by setting up a blog on Blogger, you are saving your files and data on Google engines and there is no need for hosting.
