THE education site for computer science and ICT

1. Introduction

To make a website available to the general public, various things need to be in place:

  • An ISP to provide access to the internet
  • A unique URL for each website and page
  • An IP address for the device where the website is being hosted
  • A DNS to look up the URL and find the correct IP address
  • Somewhere to host the website, either locally or externally
  • Cloud services to provide alternative options

Over the next few pages we will be taking a closer look at these things.
