If you are only looking for where to buy hosting and domain, you are in the right place!
Hosting and domain Are they the same?
Spoiler: both to have a website and to have mailboxes, you need both.
Is having a domain the same as having a hosting? No, they are different things.
Does the domain include space to upload my website? No, but it is essential for the hosting to work.
What is the domain?
Domain .com When you buy a domain for a website, what you acquire, to put it simply, is the right to use a certain name on the internet (such as panaderiaalberto.com), so that people visit your website, or send you emails.
The domains do not include web space, FTP access or email accounts. So that you can start using it immediately, at Doominio.com we include several free services with the domain, such as web and mail redirects.
In short, registering a domain is just that, registering the name and being able to point it to hosting by assigning DNS servers. The domain alone does nothing, but without it, there is nowhere to visit your page or where to send you an email.
Consult all the information you need to buy a domain: prices, available extensions, terms … And with this form you can search for a domain and register it if it is free.

Hosting: definition and meaning
What is hosting or web hosting?
Web hosting servers Hosting is a set of services that can be used with any domain, and you will need them if you want to have web and email. Hosting includes, for example: space on a server to install WordPress, use a web builder, upload your website by FTP, create email accounts or databases. That is, everything you need to host your website.
Once you have bought the domain and the hosting (also called web hosting or web hosting), you just have to configure the domain to link it to those services that we have purchased. This is done by assigning the corresponding DNS servers to the domain, it is a very simple operation.
In summary: we could say that hosting is having a rented space on the hard drive of a server, which is prepared with all the necessary programs so that you can upload your website and have all your emails in one place. And the domain is the address necessary for that website and that email to work.
