Websites are without doubt the most important element of the internet. The term is often used inconsistently, so to make it clear once and for all, this article answers the question: what is a website?
A site or website is a central location of web pages that are related and accessed by visiting the home page of the website using a browser. For example, the Computer Hope website address URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is http://www.softkeymatrix.com/. From our home page, you could get access to any of the web pages (like this one) contained on our website. The image shows how the Computer Hope website looked in 2011.
Do you need your own website?
A digital web presence enables content such as texts, images, and videos to be displayed on the internet. There are many reasons why business people need a representative website: to inform potential customers about products and services, to represent the company, to enable contact with different departments, or to distribute goods online. For private users, a website gives them the chance to actively take part in public affairs. There are also personal sites that contain informative material or are used for entertainment. An overview of the most popular sites can be found below.
By placing a link to your own website next to your social network profile, you increase the chances of catching the attention of potential employers, interested parties, or like-minded people.
