Slide 8 - Web page
- A Web page is a document on the Web. It is a formatted text document that a Web browser can display. Most Web pages on the Internet allow you to quickly move to another Web page. You can do this by clicking a hyperlink, commonly called a link. Clicking a link opens the new Web page in your Web browser. You can access existing Web pages or even create and publish new Web pages on the Web. You can create Web pages by using a software language known as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Web browsers use HTML to display Web pages.
Slide 9 - Web site
- A Web site is one or more Web pages that reside on a single server. This server is known as a Web server and is connected to the Internet. The first Web page that is displayed when you access a Web site is known as the home page. Every Web site has a unique home page.
Slide 10 - Internet Protocol (IP) address
- Every Web site on the Web is stored on a computer that is part of a vast network. To access a Web site, you need to access the computer on which the Web site is stored. Just as every house has a unique address, each computer on the Web is identified by a unique address, known as the Internet Protocol (IP) address.
Slide 11 - Internet Protocol (IP) address
- The IP address is a numeric address that specifies the exact location of a computer on the Web. You can access a computer on the Web by using an IP address, such as 192.168.0.1.
Slide 12 - Internet Protocol (IP) address
- The IP address is linked to a corresponding domain name because it is easier to remember names than a string of numbers. For example, the corresponding domain name for the IP address 127.0.0.1 can be proseware.com. Web browsers can use either the domain name or the IP address to locate and display a Web page.
Slide 13 - Uniform Resource Locator (URL)
- A Web site for a domain is accessed with the help of a unique alphanumeric address known as the Web address. The Web address is also known as the Uniform Resource Locator (URL), which specifies the protocol to be used and the exact location of the Web site.
