Why Do I Need A Domain Name And A Hosting Package

When setting up your first website it’s not uncommon to get confused between domain name registration and web hosting. Your domain name is the name of your site or your URL (www.mynewcompany.com).

In order for your website to appear on the Internet, the files need to be uploaded to a server. To be able to upload the files to the server you need a hosting package which gives you a certain amount of disk space and bandwidth on the server. With these 2 things together, you can have a website and email accounts.
