Difference Between Domain and hosting

  • Domain names usually range from about Rs-100 to Rs-5000 year depending on the extension. (.com are more expensive than .in, .info, .co)


Web Hosting

  • For your website to appear on the Internet, to develop your website and the files need to be uploaded to a server. These can be “hosted” at a web hosting company.
  • Hosting is usually billed monthly or annually at a rate of Rs.100 to Rs.5000/month depending on how the type of server you need and how much space and bandwidth you are using.
