Web Terms

QuestionAnswer
HTML Hyper Text Markup Language. This is the base language that s used for creating websites. Common uses of the term are, "html coding" and "html website".
IP or IP ADDRESS Internet Protocol. Very simply, the IP address refers to the actual number that a web address name translates to. (also see "domain"). The IP number is the real address.
SERVER A server is a computer that is used to house websites and provide a physical storage area for websites and emails. Without a server, your website would not be viewable to the world.
HTTP HyperText Transfer Protocol. This is a method used to transfer information on the internet and normally precedes the "description" of the actual resource being accessed and transferred.
FTP CLIENT The software programme that you use to upload your website to a host server.
BINARY A numbering system that consists of only two numbers, 0 and 1. Everything that you type or input into a computer is converted into binary - a unique combination of the zeros and ones.
BANDWIDTH bandwidth relates to how much a resource is used. An analogy would be a freeway. The wider the freeway, the more traffic (users) it can handle. The narrower it is, the less people can use it at once (without problems).
BETA A term used for software that is in a "live" testing phase. People can use it but can expect some hiccups.
CMS "Content Management System". A dynamic website that is normally database driven and which enables the owner/user to manage the content of their own website (make changes) without needing to know any coding at all.
DATABASE DRIVEN On a database driven website, the information is not stored on the page, but in a database. Every time someone visits a particular page, the information is drawn from the database in order to display it on the page.
DOMAIN A domain is a person or organisation's unique space on the internet. In layman's terms, it is commonly used to mean the name of your website.
HOST / HOSTING a computer somewhere, with all the necessary software, has to provide you with 3 things: an IP (domain) address, physical space to store the information and bandwidth that accommodates the flow of information that is taking place on your behalf.
