Web Design



Website Definition

A Web site is a related collection of World Wide Web (WWW) files that includes a beginning file called a home page. A company or an individual tells you how to get to their Web site by giving you the address of their home page. From the home page, you can get to all the other pages on their site. For example, the Web site for Sign & Print has the home page address of http://www.signandprint.ca. (The home page address actually includes a specific file name like index.html but, when a standard default name is set up, users don't have to enter the file name.) Sign & Print's home page address leads to several pages. But a Web site can also be just one page (startup).

Home Page

A home page is the first page presented when a user selects a
site or presence on the World Wide Web. The usual address for a Web site is the home page address, although you can enter the address of any page and have that page sent to you.


Flash is a software program that allows users to create animated works and can be viewed over the Internet as webpages.

Hosting (also known as website hosting or Web hosting) is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more websites. In a sense, you rent space on a computer to hold your website. Your host, the computer where your website files are stored, assigns an address (DNS) for your files to your domain name so that anyone can find your website on the Internet by typing in your domain name.
