What is a Website?
Things you need for a website are
- A Domain Name
- Website - Content - Images
- Web Hosting
- Setup - Testing - SEO - Monitoring
A Domain name is the name by which some one will find your site, like Jasminedesign.com or Jasminedesign.co.uk
Common Domain name extensions for sites are co.uk .uk .com .net and so many more
Domain names are registered from a Domain Register in yearly terms (So not owned but leased if you will)
Domain Name System (DNS) is a database system that translates a computer's fully qualified domain name into an IP address.
So in a more straight forward way, its like a phone book to lookup domain names to web server ip addresses
Building a Website
Web hosting is some space on a web server by which you can store your files to be served to your web visitors / customer's
Web hosting is commonly paid for in monthly or yearly terms (So again like Domain name's its something by which you lease for a payment term)
