When you sign up for a hosting service, you basically rent some space on a server on which you can store all the files and data necessary for your website to work properly.

A server is a physical computer which store or host your website content and this server are owned by your web hosting provider. Your web host is responsible for keeping the server up and running, protecting it from malicious attacks, and transferring your content (text, images, files) from the server to your visitors’ browsers whenever someone types your website name in a browser.
A domain name is your website name. Domain name is the address of your website that people type in the browser URL bar to visit your website. In simple terms, if your website was a house, then your domain name will be its address.

Domain names can be purchased through a domain registrar or through your hosting provider. They are also often provided for free by hosting companies or website builders.
An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser. By ensuring that all data passed between the two remains private and secure, SSL encryption prevents hackers from stealing private information such as credit card numbers, bank information, names, passwords, emails and addresses. This authentication process is much like sealing a letter in an envelope before sending it through the mail.

SSL certificates are what enable websites to move from HTTP to HTTPS, which is more secure. Where the ‘S’ stands for ‘secure’.
