You never know what you don’t know.This said, let’s define some common terms and begin to describe the internet, web pages and web sites.

The Internet:
The internet may be thought of as an electronic, worldwide billboard — and more! It is interactive; unlike billboards, you can purchase products and services via the internet. Like a billboard, the internet has room to display many products and services. These products and services are contained in web pages.

Web Pages:
A web page consists of images, words and other elements that describe the products and services being offered to the international marketplace. Like a billboard, or any advertising piece, each web page should have a clearly defined purpose and should convey this reason for existence to its intended audience. Each page should not waste the reader’s time. It should load quickly; otherwise, many web surfers will be gone before all the neat stuff gets loaded into the browser. A collection of web pagesmakes up a web site. (Although a web site may consist of a single web page.)

Web Sites:
A collection of a single, or multiple, web pages constitutes a web site. Web sites may contain a wide variety of standard types of web pages — feedback forms, bulletin boards, guest books, e-commerce order forms — or just standard images and words. A web site typically answers all the common questions a consumer may have about your product or services. Good sites offer a compelling reason to purchase — today. Or, a web site can provide public service, or other, information. In either case, in order to be effective a prospective client has to find your web site before they can take advantage of its offerings.
Location of your web site:
Where your web site is located is important. No, the physical location of your web site is not important. A memorable name for your site is important.
