What is Hosting?
A website needs to be stored on a computer that is always running and connected to the internet, so that it is always available should someone request to view the site. This is known as hosting and the dedicated computers are known as servers.
What is Domain Registration?
The ‘addresses’ of the servers mentioned above aren’t very user friendly. You’d have to type something like 126.96.36.199 into your address bar. Registering a domain name puts a user-friendly sign-post in place. Typing ‘bbc.co.uk’ into your browser will take you to ‘188.8.131.52’ the address of the server where the bbc website is stored. It’s generally recommended to buy the .com and .co.uk (or .org and .org.uk for organisations)
