Web Hosting is an account on a computer or a server that can store and serve website files through the Internet.
Domain Registration is leasing a domain from the Internet that directs people to specific website files through a browser like Google.
To make things simpler, a domain is an “address” whereas, hosting is the “land” or space where your website files live.
How Hosting & Domains Work
Web hosting and domain registration are both used together in the same sentence. But, having said that it’s extremely important to understand exactly what they are and what they do.
Internet addresses are usually in the form of an “IP Addresses.” An IP address is a series of numbers that make no sense to humans.
So instead of typing in 192.168.0.1.1, the website owner can register a domain that will directly take him/her to the requisite IP address.
While registering a domain name, you are basically leasing it from the Internet Corporation for Names and Numbers (ICANN).
Also, it is important to remember that a domain does not do anything on its own. Registration provides you the right to “point” to your domain wherever and whenever you want.
Web hosting, on the other hand, is the term used to indicate the storage of files that ultimately constitutes your website.
If you do not have a domain then you can access it with a series of numbers in an IP address.
While you can make your own server at home, a majority of people prefer buying hosting services from a hosting company.
A hosting company is a company that own servers that they lease out according to different plans. They involve instructions on how to “point” your domain to your hosting account.
