What Is Web Hosting?

What’s the difference between web hosting, a domain name, and a URL? This is one of the first things you’ll need to know when getting a website up. It can be confusing at first, but once you understand it, it is very simple to comprehend.

So, what is web hosting?

Think of a big apartment building full of rooms. When you walk up to one of the apartment rooms, on the front door is a number. You can think of the apartment number as the domain name. So, the domain name is just the front door of your website.  It’s what people will be looking for to find you.

When you open the door, you’re going into the actual apartment room. This would be like the hosting account of your website. Your hosting account is where all of your stuff sits. It’s the space you put everything. So, your website’s hosting is where you put all of your website stuff. It’s where all your content lives, like your images, your text, your videos, and anything else on your website. So, when you purchase hosting, you are purchasing the space to store all of your stuff in.

That is the difference between a domain name and a hosting account. You can buy a domain name only and just own the name, without having to buy a hosting account, but you wouldn’t be able to build your website until you bought web hosting.

Where should you buy web hosting?

You can buy hosting several places. Many companies offer web domain and hosting in package deals and offer savings for this package. Some of the more popular places that people use are Bluehost, Godaddy, and HostGator. All three of these are very popular choices with great customer service.

It is best to check each one. Look at their pricing and choose which one best fits your needs. A great thing to do is call the customer service line and test their customer services. Don’t be afraid to ask them any question you want, and if you don’t get the good answers that you need, then move to a new company. These people should always be willing to answer anything that you ask and be open to helping.

Hopefully, this article helps you understand what web hosting is and where you can go to find a good hosting plan.
