Hosting is basically the space that you get on the internet to have your website. Still a little confused? Think of it this way. The Internet is one big city with thousands of neighborhoods and lots.

Your domain address is the address of your business where people can find you, and your website design is the actual building. All the coding and development that goes into your site is the building materials used to build your business. When you pay to have a business website designed you are paying for the graphic design work and the coding that goes into your site, but without your plot of land your site would have no ground to stand on.
