Differences Between Domain Names, Web Hosting, and E-Commerce Hosting
Many people do not realize that registering a domain name is not the same as establishing a website. To help clear up any possible confusion, we have created the following table to provide summary definitions, explanations, and suggestions for domain names, web hosting plans, and e-commerce. Please take a look at the chart and if you have or think of any other questions regarding domains, web hosting or e-commerce feel free to post in the comments section.
Some people try to substitute a Facebook or Twitter Page for a website because its free, but the customization and functionality is extremely limited. We recommend social media as a supplement to a website, especially if you use it for business purposes.
