What’s a Domain Host?

No website exists without a URL or a way to get to that website. When a user opens a browser they need an address to enter to reach their destination website. That primary URL address is the domain name, i.e. mybusinessname.com. To create a domain you must first create an account with an online domain host management company and purchase your domain name (URL) and then point that domain to your website. Sometimes companies will offer both domain and website hosting services together.
