What is the difference between a domain and a website?

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article

The domain name registration is not the same thing as a website or a Uniform Resource Locator (URL). While some people assume that the registration of a domain name automatically means you have a website, what they do not understand is that a domain name is like a street address for getting postal mail: there must still be a building or post office box at the street address for delivering letters or packages. You must purchase, find, or implement services like web-hosting or email to make your Internet presence known and make your domain name functional and accessible to others. TopDog makes it easy to link a website or an email to the domain that has been registered, this is done through the Spin function.
