What is a Website?

A website is a collection of web pages interconnected within a domain. A website is created to fulfill a function, whether it's related to business or personal matters.

Websites come in various forms and continually evolve in their functions. Some serve as informational platforms commonly used by businesses and for selling products, such as e-commerce. Others are designed to be tools that support business operations, known as web applications.

Everything You Need to Know About Websites

Domain

A domain is the address of a website, providing a clue to where one can find the website they are seeking. 

Top and Second Level Domain

Domains are categorized into top-level domains (TLD) and second-level domains (SLD).

A top-level domain is the ending part of a domain. For example, in commsult.id, ".id" is the top-level domain. Other examples of top-level domains include:

Government Websites: .gov

Educational Websites: .edu

Non-profit Websites: .org

Commercial Websites: .com

On the other hand, a second-level domain (SLD) is the prefix of a domain. SLDs are often synonymous with a brand's name because businesses or organizations typically use their brand names as domains. Examples include Google, Facebook, etc.

Hosting

Hosting is a service for managing website data. Hosting is essential before creating a website because without hosting, your website cannot appear online to the public.

Hosting is subscription-based or requires payment for its services within a specified period, usually annually.
