Just consider your website as a local shop in your neighborhood and think what do you need to start a shop? So primary there are 4 things you need.

  1. Plot

Similarly, Website also needs these 4 things to run.  There are some technical terms used for all these. like

  1. Plot – Hosting
  2. Address – Domain
