String size

In string, when I'm declaring the size of the string, do I need to declare 1 character more than the size? Like if the string is 10 character long then does the size need to be 11? If so then why?

Because every string has the end character: '\0' so the string "hello" == the array of characters {'h', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'o', '\0'}


What does '\0' means?
