Protonation is when a base receives a proton. Deprotonation is when an acid donates a proton.

Acids go through deprotonation, in which the acid dissociates into an H3O+ ion and another ion, being the removal/transfer of the H+ proton from the acid. Bases go through protonation, in which an H+ proton gets added/transferred to the base.
