Domain And Hosting
Domain and hosting are 2 separate services, but they come together to make your website possible. They can be bought from the same or 2 different companies.
Domain name is the address of your website that people type in the browsers URL bar to visit your website. eg zcmdigital.com. A domain name should match the person or business it represents.

I highly recommend SiteGround (affiliate link) – I have used 3 previous Hosting companies and I find SiteGround to be fast, secure and their 24/7 consistent and fantastic support is invaluable.
