A site (location) on the World Wide Web. Each Web site contains a home page, which is the first document users see when they enter the site. The site might also contain additional documents and files. Each site is owned and managed by an individual, company or organization.
The three primary things to make a website are your domain name, web host and a topic. So, you know you want to create a website, but first you need to consider what the website will be about.
