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.
