What is a domain name?
A domain name is the link people will type in to get to your website, like www.example.com . To get a domain name, you have to pay an annual fee to a registrar for the right to use that name. Getting a domain name does not get you a website or anything like that. It's just a name. It's sort of like registering a business name in the brick-and-mortar world; having that business name does not mean that you also have the shop premises to go with the name. It is very important marketing tool to pick a domain name that relates to your business and is easy for people to remember.
What is web hosting?
A web host is basically a company that has many computers connected to the Internet. When you place your web pages on their computers, everyone in the world will be able to connect to it and view them. You will need to sign up for an account with a web host so that your website has a home. If getting a domain name is analogous to getting a business name in the brick-and-mortar world, getting a web hosting account is analogous to renting office or shop premises for your business.
