Domain Name vs Web Hosting | Shared Hosting, VPS Hosting, Dedicated Hosting or Cloud Computing
Domain Name and Webhosting are two different aspects of hosting a website. If you want to have a website, first you need to register a name from a Registrar to agents who is acting on behalf of registrars. (Example: Domain Name – DifferenceBetween.Com) Then you need to buy a server space to host your files which is called web hosting space. This you need to buy from a webhosting provider. Then you need to point the domain name to this hosting provider so that if anyone types your domain name in the browser it will be pointed to the hosting server to point your files or applications.
