The basic definition of a website is “A website is usually defined as a single web site that is designed and hosted by an individual or organization”. A website can include any number of web pages. All websites are public, although some private ones may be available to paid members. A website can consist of text, HTML code, video, or audio, or any combination thereof. It can also contain one or more databases that may include customer information, catalog information, or product information.


There are two main methods for creating a website including the standalone website, which are not associated with a web hosting company, and the Movable Type Website, which can be associated with or independent of a web hosting company but uses the same server that the server that hosts the website runs on. The first method of creating a website is to use the stand alone website, which consists of only the html files that make up the actual website. These files are commonly accessed through an FTP program or web browser. The second method of creating a website involves a process of adding relevant programming knowledge into the HTML code that creates the website. The programming knowledge includes things such as working with tables and frames, adding hyperlinks, and creating interactive features such as forms.

Creating a website from a template is the simplest way to create a website. When you create a website from a template, all you have to do is copy and paste the code into your web server’s cPanel and the website will be created. However, it has many disadvantages. One of the disadvantages of creating a website using a template is that your website will not change over time as changes to the web server happen. As people download your website changes you will need to download the latest changes and keep the latest versions of all your programs and features on your computer so that everything works properly.
