What is a Website?

A website is a collection of interconnected, publicly accessible Web pages with a single domain name. Individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations can construct and maintain websites for a variety of objectives. The World Wide Web is made up of all publicly accessible websites. Although it is commonly referred to as a “web page,” this term is incorrect because a website comprises multiple web pages. A website is often referred to as a “web presence” or a “site.”

For example, bethmedia.com is a website and you’re currently viewing a web page on it (this article) with the help of the internet.

Tim Berners-Lee, a British physicist at CERN, created the first website in 1990. CERN stated three years later, in 1993, that anybody could access and utilize the World Wide Web for free. A website can be accessed directly by typing its URL address into a browser or by using a search engine like Google or Bing to find it.

On the Internet, who produces websites?

On the Internet, any company, government, institution, or individual can construct a website. The Internet today is made up of billions of websites created by billions of people. On the Internet, you can even start a website or blog. A list of types of website categories can be found in the types of websites section below.

Types of Website

A Content Management System, or CMS, is usually referred to as a blog, short for weblog. WordPress is a well-known blogging platform.

A website that sells goods or services is known as an eCommerce site. Using a shopping cart application or custom code is frequently required.

Site for social media
Allow users to engage and interact with one another. www.linkedin.com is a good example of a website (a social network site where people can connect, communicate and share ideas with one another).

Search engine site
Assist users in finding what they’re looking for on the internet and providing relevant results. www.google.com is an example (the most popular search engine website).

Gaming Website
Any website that has games that can be played on the website is referred to as a gaming website. HTML5, Flash, or Java are frequently used to develop these online games. Gaming websites should not be confused with gaming content websites, which provide gaming-related content but no games to play.

Personal Website
A personal website is one that is produced by a person and contains information about their personal life, family, and life events, as well as a résumé. Many people nowadays are developing personal websites, such as blogs, or using social networking sites to keep personal info.
