What is hosting and domain?
If a website wants to operate and be known by many people, it must have a domain name and use web hosting. So what is the difference between a domain name and web hosting?


A domain or domain name is an identifying address or a named address of an internet location.

Domain helps distinguish your website from other websites and carries its own brand identity.

The domain name of each website must be registered according to the correct process, the domain names are separate and do not overlap.


Hosting or web hosting is storage space to publish websites or applications on the internet.

Hosting provides space and resources to store website data, including domain storage.

Hosting can be rented or purchased depending on usage needs and websites can share Hosting with each other.

For example  dybiweb.com. When a user wants to access or search for a certain website, they will type the domain name into the address bar from the web browser and the hosting will transfer all Vietnix website data when they access it.

How does hosting work? and factors to consider:

When you sign up for a Hosting service, you are renting a place to store all the necessary files and data on the server so that your website can operate 24/7.

Hosting can be said to be an important factor affecting the performance of a website. Therefore, when choosing hosting you need to pay attention to the following factors:

  • Strength: will affect your website loading speed
  • SSD: capacity, including all images and source code, If too little capacity, you can't upload many products, how big or small is the number of items in the image you upload
  • Bandwidth: can be simply understood as the number of people accessing the website / 1 month, with each visit, the viewer will download images from the server to their computer, and each time such a load will consume bandwidth, When the bandwidth runs out, customers can no longer access the website. There's nothing you can do about this. You can only upgrade the host or wait a month for the bandwidth to reset.
