A friend who is currently on the move in France
Sent me an e-mail with queries about domain names.
This is a topic of which I know nozzing.
So if you you chaps and shapesses know owt to tell,
please do and I will pass it on.

Here in essense is what he is asking

Hi John,

If you have a moment could you give me the explanation
for the following terms; we here in France do not use
the same terms as in England; HERE ARE THE TERMS OF
WHICH I AM NOT SURE WHAT THEY MEAN:
Concerning the creation of a website, I was asked the
following questions:

- do they want a domain name registered?

WHAT DO THEY MEAN EXACTLY BY A DOMAIN NAME
REGISTERED?

- who will be registrant and who registrar?

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN 'REGISTRANT' and 'REGISTRAR'?

- where will it be hosted?

DOES THAT MEAN SOMETHIGH LIKE: click here ?

- if no will you arrange hosting for them and in which
country?
THE QUESTION IS TO ME, DOES THAT MEAN THAT I WOULD
CONTACT THE PROVIDER AND PUT THE SITE ON THE WEB?

If you could give me a few comments on this before
Sunday evening I would be grateful.

Thanks,

DOMAIN NAME REGISTERED - your web site address registered so no one else can use it (eg pcadvisor.co.uk or microsoft.com)

'REGISTRANT' and 'REGISTRAR' The company that you register your web address with is Registrar, you are Registrant

WHERE WILL IT BE HOSTED what pc will your webpage files be on - probably a web server at your web hosting company

The company u register your domain name with does not necesarily host your web site, so you could choose a diferent host in a different country
