Just curious... what's the difference between a having a domain name and having a website? Or is there no difference between the two (i.e., they're synonymous)?
GoDaddy has a great video about this.

This depends on your interpretation, but this is what I usually tell my clients.
There's a fairly large difference between having a domain name and a website. Generally, a domain is just that. It's a space on the internet, similar to an address for a proposed development for a house.
A website will have all the fixens' for a house. It will have the framework, walls, decorations and appliances and utilities. Generally, when somebody refers to a website, they are referring to the address + the house.
I have an article with pictures here.
Does that make sense?
My way of explaining it is:
Website is the content(pages of a book)
Domain is the book cover...
You can have a domain without owning a website(you can use it for emails and stuff)
You cant have a website without a domain(Unless you want to use IPs)
BTW, I'm not talking about local domains
