What Is a Domain, Web Hosting, and Their Differences?

What is a Domain?

A Domain is a Name that you want to give to your website. 'Domain' and 'Domain Name' are the same. To get a Domain Name, you need to search for that name is available or not on Domain registrar sites. If it is acquirable, you can register that Domain Name under your name for how long you want to own it. In other words, it is like when you want to start a startup, you want to name it, let us call "X." You go to concerning authorities to register "X" for your startup.

There are two levels in a Domain Name like in "X".com, "X" is the Second Level Domain (SLD), and .com is the Top Level Domain (TLD). 

Top level domains (TLDs) are also called domain extensions and are divided into four, they are:

Generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) are the popular Domain Extensions in use and you might know most of them too. Some of them are .com, .net,  

Sponsored Top Level Domains (sTLDs) are the domains that belong to particular institutions and organizations such as only the air transport industry can use .aero, only the government organizations can use .gov, only the job offering industry can use .jobs and more.

Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTDLs) belong to the respective countries .in for Indian domains, .ae for the United Arab Emirates domains, and many more.

Infrastructure Top Level Domain (iTLD) is just one domain that is .arpa, which stands for Address and Routing Parameter Area. It powers network infrastructures.




What is a Web Host?

You need a storage device to store your website and its files or the necessary data to interact with the users. And this storage device needs to be online round the clock so that your website is always available to every targeted user. A Web Host is a storage device that is always available and online.

Web Host is like your office where you store your files and people come to you to interact, transact and do more. 

You need to pick a Web Host carefully to avoid losing users due to downtime, slow loading speeds, not just low prices, no quality in services, and more. So, please pick the web hosting provider who is good at providing low downtime, high speed, competitive prices, and is available when you need assistance.
