The website is a combination of Domain & Hosting. In simple words WEBSITE=DOMAIN+HOSTING. A domain name is your web site name. A domain name is an address where Internet users can access your website. A domain name is used for finding and identifying computers on the internet. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of numbers. However, it is difficult to remember strings of numbers. Because of this, domain names were developed and used to identify entities on the internet rather than using IP addresses.
A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers, and it can be used in combination of the various domain name extensions, such as .com/.net/.co.in and more.
The domain name must be registered before you can use it. Every domain name is Unique.No two websites have the same domain name. If someone types in www.yourdomain.com it will go to your website and no one else’s.
