A domain name is the address used by your audience to find your website.
To better understand what a domain is, think of the internet as a large map of building addresses. If you want anyone to visit or find where you live, you need an address. Just as if you want someone to visit your website, you need a website address. This is your domain name.
You've likely heard a number of terms related to domains including domain name, uniform resource locator (URL), web address. You can use these all of these terms interchangeably because they all mean the same thing.
Your website also has an IP address made up of a string of numbers (similar to 126.96.36.199). Instead of requring your visitors to remember that confusing string of numbers to visit you, your visitors can instead just type in your domain name. This is thanks to what is know as the domain name system (DNS).
DNS is simply a group of computers that translates your domain name into your numerical IP address. After all, computers communicate via numbers and not words. How does DNS work? If you want to visit A2 Hosting, all you need to do is remember the domain name "a2hosting.com". You do not need to know the related IP address made up of the string of numbers. When you type in a2hosting.com into your browser, your request is sent to DNS. DNS looks up the IP address for a2hosting.com and directs you to our website.
Yes, you need web hosting to have a website.
You can have a domain name. You can have domain hosting (AKA web hosting). But without the two together, you're not going to be able to have a website. Domain names and domain hosting are attached at the hip.
When you register a domain name, you are acquiring exclusive access for your visitors to use that web address to find you online. But if you want to actually put up a website at that address, you need domain hosting. Domain hosting is the service used to store all of the files that make up your website.
Think of domain names and domain hosting as a physical storefront. A domain name is like renting an address for a plot of land. It's your plot of land for as long as you keep paying your rent. At the end of the day though, it's still just a plot of land. You still need walls, windows, doors and a roof for your store. These are the files, databases, images and videos that your website consists of. This is your domain hosting. Without domain hosting, you can't have a website.
At A2 Hosting, we offer both domain name registration and domain hosting! Simplify the administration of your website by having both all in a single location!
