The difference between Github and Git is the same as the difference between Pornhub and porn 😄. Just kidding!!!!
Git is an open-source, version control tool created in 2005 by developers working on the Linux operating system; GitHub is a company founded in 2008 that makes tools that integrate with git. You do not need GitHub to use git, but you cannot use GitHub without using git. In simple words, Git is a version control system that lets you manage and keep track of your source code history. Github is cloud-based hosting that lets you manage Git repositories.
You can say Git is the heart ❤️ of Github

To be fair, I built my first website in github without any git 😄 - I may have had to upload dependencies, 50 files at a time myself, and it may have taken me around 3 hours to do just that but I did it - and that's what counts. 😂

It looks like you don't really know what Git and Github are. Git is version control system. Git can save your code changes and revision. Github is Git hosting or server. Github can save your Git repository in the cloud and colaborate with other. With Github you can also sync your Git repository across device.
