    If you have never created a website before, there is a chance that you get confused between what a domain name and web hosting is. But when you have done it you will laugh at how easy it is. So to start with you need a domain name. The domain name will be the name of your url or site. For example www DOT yourbusinesssname DOT com

    To purchase a domain name you have to go through a domain name registrar. For example Godaddy or Namecheap. In many cases you will
    get a first year discount. For example $3.99 the first year. Then you will pay for example $14.99 yearly. Sometimes the domain name you
    want is already taken. You could wait until it expires for the current domain name owner, or pay him a sum to take over it.

    If you want your website to be visible on the Internet, you have to host in on a server. Why? Your website consists of files and these must be hosted on a server in order to be available on the Internet. Hosting providers have servers and will be happy to host your website for a monthly sum.
    An example of a hosting provider is bluehost.com Hosting could be likened to renting a room or house.

    This advice is good. Watching Youtube videos on the subject you want to learn about is really helpful when you are a beginner.

    Let’s say you own a house. Than the house is your hosting and the domain your address. :)

    I like the example.

    I tell people who do not understand hosting as hosting is folder of a computer which is connected to internet, while domain make this folder public.

    Hi @hiuufji

    That's tough to simplify. I would say...

    Hosting is like Verizon

    Domain is like a mobile phone
