Domain hosting is offered by hosting companies that are specialized at hosting domains for individuals and companies, domain hosting and web hosting are all the same package. A domain name is the one that helps you host a website; you cannot host a website without a domain name.
A domain name is an address that you and your visitors use to access the website; it is the address written on the URL and immediately directs to your website.
Domain hosting means hosting a website online. One has to get a domain name or register a domain name with an approved registrar by the Kenya Network Information Centre. Most of the registrars in Kenya also offer web hosting services; you can therefore register a domain and host your website with the same company.
Registering a domain name does not necessarily mean that you must host a website; you can register your perfect domain with a domain registrar and keep the name for later use. Why register a domain and keep it for later use is to prevent another person registering the domain of your choice for their website. The domain name of your choice may not be so unique for other people to use so as long as it is not registered by you another person can register it.
Types of Domain names
The process and format of registering a domain must follow the Domain Name System, if not followed then it is not a domain name. The rules and procedures of the DNS are the ones that make the domain name.
The Kenyan domain names include: .co.ke, .or.ke, .ac.ke, .sc.ke, .ne.ke, .me.ke
International domain names include: .com, .org, .net, .info, .biz
The above are the extensions of a domain name, depending on the nature of a business or an organization; it helps decide on which extension to choose for your website. The extensions also have different pricing, .ke domains are cheaper than international domain; there is no difference between Kenyan domains and international domains all can be accessed anywhere in the world. The .KE is the Kenyan country code therefore suitable for businesses operating in Kenya and .COM is used by businesses operating all over the world.
