Understanding the Moving Parts
A website is simply defined as an internet destination made up of one or more pages under a common domain name published on at least one web server. That means in order to have a website you need to have:
- a domain name
- a web page with content
- a web server to host and serve your web pages

- A Content Management System (CMS)
- Professional Design Tools
- High Quality Images and Graphics
- Advanced Knowledge and Expertise

That’s it. $123.35 and a few hours worth of work and you can have a professional quality website!
