Think of your website like you would a piece of property and it becomes very simple:
- The domain is like the street address
- The hosting is like the land on which your home sits
- And the website (or files themselves) are like the property improvements, i.e. the house, garage, etc.
We recommend Weborization,net* for domain registrations. For hosting, we recommend WP Engine* unless your budget requires something lighter – in which case SiteGround* is recommended.
* Weborization earns an affiliate commission from our recommendations, but that’s not why we recommend these services. We use them ourselves and strongly believe in them.
