Put very simply, website hosting is the process of having space for your website on the internet – Just like you need to have physical space for your home or office, you need space on the internet for your website, and a hosting account is the virtual space that makes your website available and accessible online.
The short answer is Yes! Having a domain name is another part of the process for making a website available and accessible online. Think of a home or office space having no address – how can people locate it without an address to go to? The same applies for a website, and your domain name is the address for your website space online.
If you are Aussie-based, it’s highly recommendable to have a .COM.AU domain name for your website, so that Google and your online visitors can know at a glance that you are indeed an Australian based business.
Domain email is also known as Business Email and relates to an email address that matches your domain name. For example, a website address of www.SampleDomainName.com.au could have a domain or business email address of *protected email*. Having a domain or business email address helps promote your business in a professional way – Why promote @Bigpond, @Gmail, @Yahoo or any other company when you can be promoting your own website and domain name?!
