Are buying a domain name and getting webhosting spaces different things?

I saw a site offering domain names for very cheap rates , is it enough if I buy those domain names alone to have my own site or do I need to get hosting also by paying extra money?

    No, you need both. Many sites offer the domain name itself for $1.99 or less, but you still need a server to host it on. Unless you plan on leaving your personal computer on 24/7 and racking up huge bandwidth charges, you will need to rent the space from somewhere else. Generally it will cost you about $100 per year on top of buying the domain name.

    Yes they are too seperate things. Why you buy a domain name you are just reserving that name so noone else can use it. You will also need webhosting to be able to have space to put your website on.

    If you want to hve your own website, you need both. domain name is just the name of your site... for your site to be able to be active and working on the internet you need web hosting.

    It is better to buy a domain name and use free hosting. If you only need basic web hosting, you can try hosting your website at http://duwh.com , it is completely free and there are no Ads
