What is different between web hosting & domain hosting?
It’s the same, just different terms. Basically for a website you need both a domain name and web hosting but since pretty much all web hosts include a free domain name when you get hosting from them you just have to get web hosting.
P.S. A bunch of web hosts just started adding their Thanksgiving and Black Friday promotions.
To use the Internet to communicate with others or to look up information, you have to type an address into your computer. These addresses are a name or a number and are more commonly known as domain names. Every domain name has to be completely unique so that the internet knows the correct website to bring up for the user.
If you wish to create your own website, you need to devise a name you wish your website to be known as. This name then needs to be registered with a domain registration company to ensure that it is unique and that you become the legal owner of that domain name.
You also need to pick a domain extension to attribute to your domain name. By this we mean.com,.co.uk,.org,.net etc. You should give careful consideration to the domain extension you choose to ensure that your full domain name best represents that of your business or project. For example if you are a UK business and are only selling to the UK, it would be most effective to choose a.co.uk domain extension – especially for achieving good UK search engine rankings.
It is imperative that before registering a domain name with a domain registrar that you check that they are a credible domain registration company. One method of doing this is to check that the domain registrar’s website is featured on the ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) Accredited Registrars list
Once you have registered your unique domain name with an accredited domain registrar, you need to get your website live on the internet. To do this, you need to buy a web hosting package from a hosting company.The process of putting your website on the internet is completed by the web hosting company you sign up with and will involve placing your website on a web server which is then linked to the internet. The type of web server your site is hosted on will depend on the requirements of your website. The most common web hosting plans are Shared Web Hosting and Dedicated Server Web Hosting.

Web hosting is nothing but purchasing domain to get unique identity on the web and way to redirect users to your website and this is fixed for the period of one year after that you have to renew it on regular basis to make your domain active in future.
Web hosting is leasing or buying a web space for your website on many servers to get various features like bandwidth, security, disk space, customer support, etc.
