    We like to use the "Car / Garage / DMV" analogy.
    Your domain is like the license plate for your car. With it, you can be identified and located on the world wide web.
    You can't get a license plate for your car until you register it, nor can you have a domain until you register it, either.
    A domain registrar is like the DMV of the internet. You use a registrar to register your domain for a period of time - 1, 2, 5 or more years.
    Once you have registered your domain, you need a place to park it - a "garage". A web host is where you do that.
    Now that you have registered your domain, and have a place to host it, you need to set up your website - your "car" - for all the world to see.http://www.mirrorimages.net/mi_faq.php?do=a&cid=3&id=42
