Every website that you visit consists of a domain name and a web host. The easiest way to picture it is to think of the domain name as the address and the web hosting as the physical building.
When you’re browsing the web and you type in a URL (i.e. http://www.irock.co.zm), your web browser basically queries that domain name (i.e. irock.co.zm) and asks it where the website is hosted. The browser then loads up the contents that are stored there.
Whether they're using a dedicated server, or sharing resources, every website is hosted on a server. The only way for a website to be visible on the internet is if it's hosted by a web hosting service provider, also known as a web host.
As mentioned above, web hosting is storage for your website, but you need a domain name for others to actually view your website. Your domain name (also called a URL or domain address) is your company’s Internet address; it’s the same way your company’s street address is used to find your office, a domain name is used to find your website.
