What is a domain?

You’ve probably heard a lot of different terms related to this domain, domain name, URL, web address. All of those are correct. Your domain name is your web address and your web address is a URL. It might help to know that URL actually stands for “Uniform Resource Locator” but you don’t need to memorize that! In the same way that you can use coordinates to locate a point on a map you can enter a URL into your Internet browser to find a website on the Internet.

We know what is a domain, now what is a website?

A website is essentially just a group of files, images, graphics that are assembled into an orderly design. Altogether, we call that: content and website content. It is securely stored and hosted on large data banks called servers. The domain is just an identifier. People can distribute it or find it through a search engine. And once someone has your domain they can use it to find your content as a beautifully designed website, for instance is https://wecreateweb.site. If I open my browser and type that URL in the address bar there is quick communication to our servers where the wecreateweb.site website is found and served to my computer. This is basically how every domain and website work together.
