Domain

A website is a group of web pages that are saved and run on the internet through connected server by using a specific address that is a domain. Domain is used to run and save the website from the server.
A website is like a folder on your hard disk. And hard disk, in this case, is a server. Domain is like a folder name that is saved on your computer.
A website is like a shop, factory, and business. Domain is like a shop name, factory name and business name.
Almost all the things that we do on the internet, actually we do in websites and the data store on the server. Each website that we open on the internet has domain.
We build and create a website using HTML, CSS, PHP, Java etc. languages and we can also create a website using website builders. We have to purchase a domain from a domain registrar.
There are various websites such as Informational website, e-commerce website, video sharing website, social networking website, portfolio websites, blogging websites, reviews website and application websites etc. There are various domain extension for a single domain name, such as .com, .net, .in etc.
Website designs can be similar. Domain name can’t be similar.
The content of the website or web pages inside the website has to be unique and different from another website. Domain also needs to be different but we can use .in, .net if .com is not available.
You can create as many pages in the website. Such sub folder with different content. You can create sub-domain with related names. Such as sub-folder name.
You need to install WordPress or any application that you want to use to build a website on the server or root folder. After buying the domain you need to add Nameserver in domain DNS management setting.
You need to add the domain name in cPanel using Add on domain option in shared hosting plan. You get domain Nameserver address after purchasing a Hosting package.
When you search for the domain in the search engine it will show the domain name but when you click on the domain name it will show you the website. You need to verify the ownership of the domain when submitting domain and website in search engine for indexing pages.
