A website is composed of one or more individual web pages, where a “page” is an organized, separate document containing text, images, video and other elements.


The electronic files that make up a web site are stored on specialized computers called web servers. These computers accept requests from other, remote computers for specific web pages, and deliver those files needed to make the web page display on the remote computer.


The type of program you would use to view web pages is called a web browser. It is this program that would make the requests to the web server for the web site files.


A website address looks like this: http://www.example.com
