What is the difference between hosting and domain registrars?

A hosting company is the company that has the files for your website stored on their servers. Hosting companies normally charge a monthly fee which includes storage space for your site, email, and FTP functionality. 

A domain registrar is a company that reserves and registers your ".com" domain name. Sometimes this can be the same company as your hosting company, but domain registration is usually charged as a yearly fee.
