Blogging – Terminology – What does Hosting, Domain and Website mean?


I wrote a blog post here,  where I stated that I would do some research for myself on all the internet stuff,  blogging stuff and terminology and I would share that with you all.

The point of this post is to share a few youtube video’s that will help you understand some basic blogging /internet terminology.  Because,  I am sure a lot of us, including me, are confused by it all.  And I believe that confusion makes a lot us feel unsure, uncomfortable, and confusion only leads to bad decisions.

Please note I am not an expert at all on the internet, I am just sharing what I have researched, I request that you do your own research to supplement this.

Please watch all four videos and I really hope they help you get these terminologies.
