Brief Description

A website is a collection of web pages (which consist of text and/or multimedia) hosted on a web server and accessible via the World Wide Web. A web page is a "page" typically written in (X)HTML and is available via a URL (such as http://kstoolkit.org/Websites. Websites can be created using a variety of tools:
  • Notepad or Wordpad to write and edit the (X)HTML code.
  • Commercial Editors such as Adobe Dreamweaver and Microsoft Frontpage which are enabled with What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) functionality. In this case, the software directly manipulates the (X)HMTL code.
  • Using a content management system (CMS). CMS are complete applications which are used for creating, editing, publishing and managing content (text and/or multimedia) in a coherent manner. Examples of CMS include Joomla, Drupal, Typo3, etc.
