How do domain and hosting work together for building a website?

Domain and hosting work together to make your website accessible on the internet. Following how they cooperate:

Domain Name   This is the human readable an IP address people type into their browsers to access your website. It’s like an address of your house. When someone types your domain name into their browser, the browser sends a request to a domain name system server which translates the domain name into an IP address. So, we can also say that it’s like someone finding your house by its address.

Hosting    Basically, hosting is like the land where your house sits and all the things inside it. Once the browser knows the IP address of your website, it sends a request to the server hosting your website content. Hosting is where are your website files such as HTML, CSS, images, and databases, are stored. The hosting server receives the request, retrieves the relevant files, and send them back to the user’s browsers, allowing them to view your website.

         So, in conclusion domain name guides people to your website, and hosting makes sure everything they need to see is there waiting for them, just like the house and its land working together to welcome guests and make your website easily accessible online.
