DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DOMAIN AND A HOSTING ACCOUNT

Before you place an order, it is important you know the difference between a domain name and a hosting account.

Every website has its web pages or scripts stored on a server somewhere. These web pages or scripts are what you view on your browser. This space on a server is called a hosting account. WhoGoHost offers a variety of hosting packages with different disk quota and bandwidth offerings and prices.

The domain name is a unique name that your site visitors use to access your website. So if you want to visit WhoGoHost, you would only need to enter the domain name whogohost.com into your browser address bar. In reality, the domain name is translated to the IP address of the server that hosts the web pages for the web site.

To get an account on the Internet, you need both a domain name and a hosting account. But how does the domain name know the IP address of the server that hosts the webpages of the site?

There is a link between a domain name and a hosting account called the nameservers. These nameservers are values given to the domain that would direct the domain to the server where the web pages are hosted.

This means that you can register a domain with one company and get a hosting account with another. As long as the domain has the right nameservers, the domain would point to the correct server.

This therefore implies that you can place an order for a hosting account alone, a domain name alone or a combination of both a domain and a hosting account.
