What is the difference between a domain and web hosting?
Web hosting is the provision of allocated space on a server that has a permanent connection to the Internet. This allows people from all over the world to see your website 24/7.

A domain is a unique name with an extension (.com, .net, and .org) that you register for yourself, your business or organization. These domain names are addresses which typically point to websites on web servers.
