In this video, you will learn about web hosting services. If you do not know the different types of web hosting services and how they differ, it might be a good idea to do some research before you start your own. Web hosting and domain hosting are pretty similar, but they have their differences.
It is common to get confused between the two. A domain hosting business sells and maintains domains in exchange for a yearly subscription. Every domain has a matching IP Address that directs to a specific location on the internet. Domains are categorized into levels. When you buy a domain from a domain host, you gain ownership of that domain as long as you pay for the subscription. In order to buy web hosting services, it is required that you own a domain. If you do not have a domain, a web hosting server can actually sell you one. If the server crashes, all of the websites will go down. Managing these can get confusing for some. Managing files, emails, and others can be difficult. Some people actually recommend that you shud have a separate host for your domain and websites.
