Domain vs Website Hosting

 

If you are looking to launch your business online, chances are you have heard term Hosting. But what is it really?
In the most generic sense, it is a service that provides storage and computing resources to an individual or an organization.
Website Hosting
Website hosting is a service that stores all the things that make up your website, such as images, text, and code. This allows your website to be available online over the Internet for many to explore.
We provide this service for websites created using our platform, it is a part of your subscription plan.
Domain Hosting
Domain hosting is not the same as Website hosting. Domain hosting refers to managing all domain-related requirements, such as managing DNS records and relevant IP addresses. 
This means storing all of your DNS records like NS records, A records, CNAME records and so on, that point your domain name to a particular platform or a website, or link it to your mailbox.
We provide this service for domains purchased via our platform. 

Although we do not provide domain hosting for external domains, you can still connect them to a website created on our platform by following these instructions.
