I need to know stuff about Websites and hosting?

Question by : I need to know stuff about Websites and hosting?
I’m 13 Year olds and learnt Html and a bit of javascript. I want to know what is a good hosting domain website? I actually know nothing of these sites I know thery’ve got something to do with buying .com, co.uk etc. This may sound daft but do you make the website on the domain hosting website too? Im so confused. As u can probably tell I’m experience with making websites only with drag and drop elements. Erm, another thing I want to know what Cloud hosting is my mate talks about it, don’t have a clue what that means… Is there a place i can learn about domain hosting and that. I’m so confused. It’s probably simple to you lot and think this dudes thick Lol. But yeah please tell me :S

Websites are created by website designers. The websites are then stored on servers (computers with an internet connection that are on 24/7).

Domain names (.com, .co.uk, .com.au) are purchased or leased through a domain name supplier. Domain names point to the server that the website is on.

So when you type google.com into the address bar of your browser, you are being linked to googles server, which displays the website.

If you are looking for a domain name, search ‘Domain Name’ in google and click the first link that comes up – as it is usually a reputable brand.

‘Cloud’ computing is just a marketing buzzword created by companies. All it is, is a collection of servers that store your data.
