A website is the modern equivalent of a storefront and all businesses, big or small, need a well-designed website these days. There’s a popular misconception about websites, that registering a domain name is the same as hosting a website. This simply isn’t true. Registering a domain name is like giving your website a name. It does not really include a website. In order to have a working website that can be accessed throughout the world via the internet, your website needs to be hosted somewhere.
