Newbie Introduction to the World Wide Web
Dr. Samuel Johnson once remarked, "Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it."
Some people might consider all this web terminology mumbo-jumbo. For some of us, it is just that. Sometimes you just don't want to get involved in it. You look for website builder package that is simple yet powerful to get your website done in a hurry.
That is why I use Voda Utilities for building and parking my website. I have given these descriptions not only to explain web terminology but to make a point as well.
However, it's good to know the terminology. Hey! Like Jerry would say "Not that there is anything wrong with it." Who knows may be you use them sometime or at least converse with someone at a minimum.
What is Bit? What is Byte?
This is yet another attempt to explain bits and bytes. The computer and communication equipments use bits and bytes.
What is Bandwidth, Network Connection, Traffic?
Get familiarized with bandwidth, network connection and website traffic.
What Is Website?
In general, a website is made up of, quite often, many web pages. Sometimes it is just one page. A web page is basically composed of texts and graphic images and on some websites, you see lots of videos as well.
What Is IP Address?
Every dwelling in the U.S. has a unique identifying address - country.state.city.street address. Every machine on the Internet has a unique identifying number, called an IP Address. IP, by the way, is Internet Protocol.
What Is Web Server?
Right now, you are sitting at a computer and viewing this page in a browser. Either you clicked on the link for this page, or typed in its URL (Uniform Resource Locator).
What Is PHP?
PHP (recursive acronym for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor") is a widely-used Open Source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML.
If you were not familiar with web terminology before this, I hope you now have enough information to go about selecting a great website builder and especially a great website hosting service.

Read about Web Pioneers - The Early Years
A special Wayback collection of websites that began the World Wide Web (WWW) revolution on the Internet as we know it.
This special Wayback collection pays tribute to the websites that shaped the character of the Net in the early years: irreverent, Star Trek obsessed, visionary. Many of the websites featured in this special Wayback collection were already on the WWW by 1993 or even earlier, a full three years before we began archiving the Net. They were the early settlers - the Web pioneers.
