What is web hosting provider and domain name provider

Domain name is the URL of the website. You need to purchase it separately.
You can purchase the domain from x domain name provider and if you wish, you can transfer it to other
domain name provider. you can buy bulk number of domains and sell. Some domain name provider
gives hosting space for web applications along with domain.
You can purchase domain name and point the DNS to blogSpot free hosting blogging account in very simple steps.

e.g.
You might be having free blog hosted at blogspot.com like http://satalaj.blogspot.com
and domain name www.satalaj.com . The if you click on satalaj.blogspot.com, you will be redirected to
www.satalaj.com because I have changed hosting dns of www.satalaj.com to satalaj.blogspot.com.

Hosting provider: It is already explained above.

Note:

If your business is in India, there is no point to locate the Hosting server in US. Choose local hosting providers. Also, if you are targeting the customers across India only then think about purchasing top level domain as .in when your website URL name ends with .in Google ranks the content of your page for Indian users. This way you can save bandwidth consumption by unnecessary visits from other countries.

Domain specific Email ID

You may get the configurable email address for your domain for free. But the space or bandwidth allotted
for those email accounts is very less. Fortunately you can configure it with GMail hosting and forget about the 
space provided by hosting providers. Use Gmail unlimited space for free. Get the benefit of Google products.
