The initial phase in Domain service is the domain registration, the space enlistment is holding a specific area for a specific timeframe. The primary procedure required in space enlistment is checking the accessibility of the Domain name.

2. Web Hosting:
Web hosting is a service that places a website on the internet. In different words, it makes the website available to the users.
