Domains, Hosting, and WordPress – 3 Website Terms Explained

In this blog post, I want to briefly explain three common website terms: domains, hosting, and WordPress.

A member over in my Facebook community recently asked a question: “What is a web host and what is WordPress?” This is a very common question and many people answer it in different ways but here’s my simple definition:


The easiest way for me to explain web hosting is to compare it to a home. Your web hosting is the plot of land that your home will be built on.


Think of your domain name or website URL as your street address. It’s what people type in their web browser to find you.

Your Website

And last but not least, is the home, which is your website.


WordPress is a website-building software you can use to build your online home.
