A domain name is your website name. A domain name is the address where Internet users can access your website. A domain name is used for finding and identifying computers on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of number. However, it is difficult for humans to remember strings of numbers. Because of this, domain names were developed and used to identify entities on the Internet rather than using IP addresses.
Web hosting plans are generally favoured by customers who want an easy way to manage a professional website, a personal blog or even several websites, and to not have to worry about the hosting platform.
These hosting plans respond to a wide range of needs and are able to support a large number of projects. They are therefore suitable for users of all kinds of profiles, from individuals to large companies.
While they both work together, the domain name and the web hosting service are two different things and each function in different ways.
A domain name can be purchased without web hosting. These domains are considered ‘parked’ until such time as their name servers are delegated (or pointed) to a web host.So you can buy domain names from WebZim and use another web hosting company. Advanced DNS records of the domain can also be used to point to other servers, although the IP address must be known. It may also be redirected to another domain name.
