    Web hosting, web sites and domain names.  These are all important terms if you want to own your own website, but what do they all mean?

    This blog is to help those new to websites and hosting to understand these key terms.  We will use a simple analogy from the physical world to help explain what they mean and how they are related.

    Web Hosting

    Let’s start with the basics.  In order to have a website that can be found through a browser on a laptop or on a mobile device you need 3 things.

    1. Webhosting 
    2. A domain name

    To explain these we will use the analogy of building a house on a plot of land.

    1. Think of web hosting like renting a plot of land so you have somewhere to build your house on.
    2. Think of your domain name (eg as the postal address of your shiny new house.
