What Exactly Is A Website

Most people know what a website is from a visual perspective. But most people, including many tech people, have no idea what a website actually is.

Companies like Buffer joined the cause and posted all of their employees salaries and they even shared the formula that they use to determine those salaries. And to be honest, it all seemed incredibly fair. You had people with the exact same titles who had tens of thousands of dollars separating them, but then you looked at the formula, and it just made sense.

Making a website can get complex. And I mean, a full website, not a blog or a site with static content. I mean more a website with a business backend that intends to accomplish something. Like a shopping site, a product review site or something like YouTube maybe. You're going to need logos, designs, icons, background patterns and somewhere to store all these things. And if you have a great idea, and just getting started in the web development world, then these sites can help you make that process much easier and hopefully avoid some headaches that come with web development.

When you think of a website, you think of WordPress nowadays. And why wouldn't you, WordPress runs 23% of all websites. With so many online ads claiming that you can learn to make a website in 3 weeks or your money back, it sounds like the easiest thing in the world to do. Campaigns like the "Hour Of Code" just make it a stronger point that anybody can make Facebook or Twitter or YouTube. But the obvious answer is, of course, that you won't be able to do those things.

You have an idea or bits and pieces of an idea, you get a cheap hosting account and a $9.99 domain name and you install Wordpress and a dozen plugins and you are in action.
