To own a website, you need three things: domain name, web hosting, and a developed website. But what's a domain name? What's a web hosting? Aren't them the same? It's important that you are crystal clear on their differences before you move on to create and host your first website. A web hosting is a computer where people store their websites. Think of it as a house where you store all your stuffs; but instead of storing your clothes and furniture, you store computer files HTML, documents, images, videos, etc in a web host. Usually, a web hosting company do more than just storing your website. Here are some value-added services and features to expect from your hosting provider:.

Virtual hosting is a method for hosting multiple domain names with separate handling of each name on a single server or pool of servers. The term virtual hosting is usually used in reference to web servers but the principles do carry over to other Internet services. One widely used application is shared web hosting. The price for shared web hosting is lower than for a dedicated web server because many customers can be hosted on a single server. It is also very common for a single entity to want to use multiple names on the same machine so that the names can reflect services offered rather than where those services happen to be hosted. There are two main types of virtual hosting, name-based and IP-based. Name-based virtual hosting uses the host name presented by the client. This saves IP addresses and the associated administrative overhead but the protocol being served must supply the host name at an appropriate point.
As mentioned previously, a domain name is simply your name on the internet or what people type in the browser URL bar when they want to visit your website. Examples of that would be Google. This unique string of characters will provide your website with a distinctive identity. Older domains, especially those that have a single-word name like insurance. Each registrar has its own standard renewal fee.
