Hi I’m Chris with Tiny Frog Technologies and today I wanted to talk to you about a common question that comes from clients about the difference between domain registration and hosting. Well a domain registrar is a company that you purchase your domain name from. It holds the DNS settings that hold records which tell the domain “Hey I want my email over here” and “I need my website over here.”
These DNS settings hold records that tell your domain where to host your email and where to host your website. It’s not necessary to have all three of them in one area because you can buy domain “A” from company “A” and also have email hosted there, and a website hosted there too. But it’s not necessary.
At Tiny Frog we specialize in WordPress website hosting. So your domain can be registered with one company and your email with the same company, and then just have your website hosted and maintained with us. If you’d like more information on domain registration or any type of hosting, please contact one of our team members by clicking here.
