One of the most important tasks in my job is to speak to clients in a language that they can understand. We techie nerds need to understand the lingo of how a website runs, we don’t need to overload our clients with too much unnecessary jargon. I thought I’d write a blog to explain some of the buzz words you may hear from web designers.
For a website to be visible on the internet, it must be hosted on a web server. Think of hosting as the process of housing your website on the internet. We have accounts with some of the top hosting companies in Ireland and will look after the hosting for you.
A server can mean 2 things in relation to the web
- A server is the computer on the internet that hosts your website (Windows, Linux etc.)
- A server is the software that runs on a computer that processes requests and responses to your website. Think of it as a container for your website.
