Difference Between Domain and hosting
- Your domain name is the name of your site url address (www.example.com) it can be purchased by going to a domain name registrar.
- Domain names usually range from about Rs-100 to Rs-5000 year depending on the extension. (.com are more expensive than .in, .info, .co)
