You’re more familiar with websites than you realize, but let’s start with the basics. There are many different types of websites, each of them serving its own purpose. You probably read news stories on media sites like The Wall Street Journal and turn to entertainment websites like BuzzFeed when you want something a little more lighthearted.
A business website focuses on a company and its offerings, like the site you’re on now. Blogs are dedicated to articles, reviews, and literature. And social media websites like Facebook or Twitter help you connect with friends.
All of these websites are made up of pages that contain text, images, and other media. These pages link to documents that can be displayed using a web browser such as Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer.
