Differences Between 'Domain' and 'Hosting' And Picking Tips

If you're one of those which are still not clear about the differences between a domain and hosting ... do not worry, because here I explain it.

A Domain is the name that the website will be identified with and which will even determine the exact address that Internet users must enter in the browser to access it.

I recommend that when you decide the name and URL of your website, keep in mind that it should be easily remembered as most people are accessing pages once and only return if they can remember the name at the time.

However, to better understand how to form what is known as a domain, pay attention to the three sections in which it is composed. First you must have the initials www, then the exact name of the website you've decided to use, and finally the generic extension, like .com, .gov, .net or .edu and territorial extension, like .uk. When someone chooses .com is because their purpose is commercial. Termination .edu is selected if the site is academic, whether school, university, college, etc.. While the termination .gov is only given to units that belong to the government.

For it's part, which is known as for Hosting is the service of web hosting and each of its components. Hosting is almost like renting a virtual local for your business worldwide.

To have a more specific idea and to rent a space take into account the services that are provided, the area where it is located, among other features. Within the key points to choose web hosting or suitable hosting server for your company are the type of connection, additional services, the amount of emails that it offers and the  security range you're provided.
