Many people who are looking to create their first website have no idea what they need to get started.  However, creating a website is MUCH easier than one might imagine.  In this article I would like to briefly explain the process of getting a site online works and why you need web hosting and a domain name.

It is important to understand the difference between web hosting and domain names because you need both.  Web hosting is the space that you buy on a remote computer to store your website files.  When you purchase web hosting you are basically renting space on a high-powered server somewhere in the world.

A domain name is the actual name of your website (ie. www.MangoOrange.com).  The domain name will point to your web hosting account.

SOMEONE TYPES DOMAIN NAME —-> POINTS TO WEB HOSTING ACCOUNT —> SITE LOADS
