General description of Domain and Hosting

Basic description of domain and hosting


In order to create a functioning website that you can look at in your Internet browser, you need to own a domain and hosting.

A domain alone is not enough because it only acts as an address pointing to a repository. Once you enter the domain in the address bar of your Internet browser, if it is set up correctly, you will be redirected to the repository from where the web presentation is loaded.

Hosting then acts as a storage and a computer, or rather a server, displaying your web presentation. It stores all the necessary data to load a web presentation in an Internet browser or even tools for its administration, such as content management systems (CMS) Wordpress, Joomla and others.
