What does “hosting and domain” mean?



When you’re setting up a website, hosting and a domain name are two of the first things you’ll need to consider. You’ve heard the terms before, but it’s possible you aren’t 100% clear on what they mean.

Imagine your website is a TV show

In this analogy, the TV Network would represent your website hosting. The TV Network gives space for the TV show to be created. It also provides a way for people to see your TV show. Similarly, website hosting provides a space for the website to be created and a way for people to view your site.

How does a “domain name” fit into all this? The domain name is like the title of the TV show. Take a look at the top of your screen and you may see my domain name: websitesbyaubrey.com.

So your website hosting provides a home for your website and your domain is a name for your website. If you don’t have either of these and aren’t sure how to get started, send me a message or check out wpengine.com.
