How to Build a Website?

This brief guide is intended to provide a high-level understand of websites.

A website consists of one or more web pages. These web pages exist on a web server. A web server is a computer that runs appropriate software to "serve" web pages when they are requested.

Websites are allocated an address. This address is called a "domain name". Domain names are words like "www.google.com", or "www.mybusinesswebsite.com.au".

When a user enters a domain name into a web browser, the domain name is converted to the appropriate web server.

 

So to create a website, you will need to:

  • Obtain a domain name
  • Organise web hosting on a web server
  • Organise your web site directory structure
  • Plan the web pages for your website and how they will navigate.
