What is a website?

Website 101

A website is a collection of web pages that are designed by a web designer, programmed by a web developer and hosted on web servers.

The Web, or World Wide Web (W3), is basically a system of Internet servers that support specially formatted documents. The documents are formatted in a markup language called HTML (HyperText Markup Language) that supports links to other documents, as well as graphics, audio, and video files.

Professional or business websites require good design, proper development and a small yearly investment in hosting.

The design must be attractive and user-friendly to ensure that the website’s visitors can easily navigate and access the products and services offered. The objective is to persuade existing and potential customers to connect with your business.

Steps for building a website

Every website starts with a concept design. This answers the questions: What is the goal of my website? What should it look like? Who should it appeal to? What features should it include?

Then, the next step is to develop the source code to ensure the efficient functionality of the website. In this step, code is written for security. This ensures that the information stored on the website is protected from all cyber threats and visitors to the website are protected as well.

Next, the website and its data is hosted on a web server so anyone in any part of the world can access the website. The web hosting is responsible for the web address also known as the domain, the email exchange connected to that domain and the traffic that flows in and out of the website.

Web hosting is like renting a personal unit on the internet so a yearly fee is required.
