Domain hosting, email hosting, and website hosting
Since there’s a lot of confusion around the topics of domains, web hosting, and email hosting, we will quickly review these three types of online hosting. Domain hosts store domain names and facilitate their registration. First, you must register a domain with a domain registrar. You may use a hosting account to turn it into a street address or URL, which directs people to your website’s location. If you are using a domain registered through a third-party provider, that company is your domain host. For example, you may use Scala hosting for your web hosting but have a domain registered elsewhere. For your website to appear online, you need actual file hosting. You will often find domain and web hosting offered as a package with most companies offering domain email and web hosting as a bundle.
What about web hosting?
web hosting is a service that provides computer resources such as server space, memory, and bandwidth needed for your website files to live on the Internet. Users can create and store website content on a web host server so it can be viewed online via a web browser. If you imagine a website plus all its content as a store, a web host simply provides the physical or disk space to display the store products in this case. the website content includes text images, videos, and anything else that make up the site’s content. There are different types of hosting available to reflect the needs of different web sites. Web hosting plans range from shared hosting with multiple sites sharing a single server, dedicated hosting in which one customer uses an entire server space and bandwidth.
What about email hosting?
Email hosting is a service in which your email messages and associated files are all stored on a server when you receive an email to your website’s domain address. The email is routed across the internet and stored on the recipient server. At this point, the server administrators will determine which action to take: reply or ignore bearing in mind any spam filters rear routing requests and if the sender is on any blacklists. The server hosting email can be the same server that’s hosting your website content a server managed by another host or two different servers managed by the same hosting company. Email hosting providers might specialize in offering the only email hosting services but it’s more typical for companies to offer bundled emails and web hosting packages nowadays.
