Website

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

File

Files are collections of data stored on a computer. The data in a file is organized in a specific manner, usually based on how that data is going to be used by the computer. Files each have their own name and contain their own data.


Files are often organized in folders – also called "Directories." Folders can contain files. Folders can also contain folders – each of which could contain further files and/or folders. The resulting structure of files and folders is called a hierarchy.

Forward slash

A forward slash, also known as just slash, is a symbol which looks like this: "/". It is most commonly used in the following ways:


1. To show choices – meaning literally “and or”; for example "small/medium/large".
2. To show a ratio of things (“miles/day” in traveling would be how many miles you travel per day; it could be spoken as “miles per day;”)
3. To separate the different parts of a collection of electronic documents.


This third use is the most common use of the "/" symbol in computer and it has been used for a long time. It was created as an aid to organizing and finding the various files you might store on a computer.


See, backslash.
