A website is a place where you show off your product or service. What does this mean? Many people confuse Google listing of a company with a website.

What is Google listing?

It is the result which you see on the right side of your page on desktop and bottom of search bar on mobile. Where you see the map which shows the location of the company, below that you see the phone number, address, working hours and the link to your website etc. See the image below

This can be done for FREE using Google My Business, you don’t need any developer’s help to do this. Just sign in to Google My business via your Gmail and you are good to go.

What is a Website?

Website, on the other hand, is something completely different and independent of google listing. Let me explain you in a better way. Website consist of a domain i.e www.thereviewstories.com is a domain name. Domain name includes www (World Wide web), the name of your company, and the extension .com, .in, .co.in, .org, .edu, .nic etc. This you need to buy from a service provider like Godaddy or Bigrock. Then you need hosting, Hosting is a place where you store your website’s files. Like images, a description written on your website and other content you need for your website.
