You definitely need a domain and hosting before you start building a website with an Elementor. Then you need to install WordPress on your hosting and after that you can create a website with Elementor.
A domain is an address where people can access your website (such as your website-name dot com). A web hosting is a place where your website files are properly hosted . A .com domain typically costs between $ 8 and ડ 13 per year. Through hosting, you can use a program tailored to your needs.
While you can purchase domains and web hosting from different providers, we recommend that you purchase from the same provider as this will be easy to maintain. If you purchase domains and hosting from different providers, you will need to point your domain (using DNS) to the other hosting company server manually.
