What is Domain Name?
A domain name may divide into two parts which are separated by a dot(.).
The first part of the domain name is a unique combination of alphabets and numbers. the other part of the domain name is also referred to the domain extension which may define the purpose of the domain name. Domain extensions maybe “com”, “net”, “info” etc.
The domain name eg “something123.com” must be unique over the World Wide Web (www) as it identifies the IP (Internet Protocol) address to assess your website by the users.
What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is the set of services provided by a web host or web hosting provider.

- Source Codes
