What is a custom domain for my website?

A custom domain lets people see your address linked to your personal business domain rather than a generic hosting one. For example if you chose "jennahairsalon.com" as your custom domain, when people go to this address, they see your website. A custom domain helps with branding and building credibility as it helps people trust that you are a legitimate vendor.

What's the difference between web design and development?

Web design primarily focuses on the visual aesthetics and user experience of a website. It involves creating the layout, color schemes, typography, and graphical elements to ensure an appealing and user-friendly interface.

Web development, on the other hand, involves the programming and coding required to bring a website to life. It includes both front-end development (client-side) responsible for what users see and interact with, and back-end development (server-side) handling databases, server functionality, and application logic.

In essence, web design deals with the look and feel, while web development deals with the functionality and technical aspects of a website.
