So you want a website. But what does that actually mean? How do you get from having an idea to putting out a finished online product? The task seems huge – the jargon, buzzwords and technological know-how all look really complicated. There’s an easy solution, though. Let’s start at the beginning.
Getting Started – the Basics
A website is made out of files. Every time you load a webpage, you are accessing those files, yet they don’t have to be stored on your computer. The way that they can get to your browser is that a server (a type of very powerful computer) sends them to you on-demand. You need access to a server to make your website visible online.
But what’s the difference between your computer and a server? You can just keep your files where they are and send them out whenever people want right from your laptop, right?
Great Power and Great Responsibility
It’s a nice idea, but home computers just aren’t powerful enough. Think about it – you can have hundreds of people on a website, all clicking different things, looking at your blog, searching for your phone number, and the site still works. That’s because the server it’s on can respond fast enough. Think about what your computer would do if you tried to run a hundred programs on it at once. Not pretty, right?
You’d also need a super-fast internet connection and an agreement with your ISP that you’d be using it 24/7. If someone on the other side of the world wants to see your site, you probably want to let them. That means the server has to be up and running all the time.
