The biography of U.S. President BarackObama that appears on White House.govWebsiteFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaA website, also written as Web site,[1] web site, or simplysite,[2] is a set of related web pages containing content(media), including text, video, music, audio, images, etc. Awebsite is hosted on at least one web server, accessible via anetwork such as the Internet or a private local area networkthrough an Internet address known as a Uniform ResourceLocator. All publicly accessible websites collectivelyconstitute the World Wide Web.A webpage is a document, typically written in plain textinterspersed with formatting instructions of HypertextMarkup Language (HTML, XHTML). A webpage mayincorporate elements from other websites with suitablemarkup anchors.Webpages are accessed and transported with the HypertextTransfer Protocol (HTTP), which may optionally employencryption (HTTP Secure, HTTPS) to provide security andprivacy for the user of the webpage content. The user'sapplication, often a web browser, renders the page contentaccording to its HTML markup instructions onto a displayterminal.The pages of a website can usually be accessed from a simpleUniform Resource Locator (URL) called the web address. The URLs of the pages organize them into ahierarchy, although hyperlinking between them conveys the reader's perceived site structure and guidesthe reader's navigation of the site.Some websites require a subscription to access some or all of their content. Examples of subscriptionwebsites include many business sites, parts of news websites, academic journal websites, gamingwebsites, file-sharing websites, message boards, web-based email, social networking websites, websitesproviding real-time stock market data, and websites providing various other services (e.g., websitesoffering storing and/or sharing of images, files and so forth).Contents1 History2 Overview3 Static website4 Dynamic websiteWebsite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Website1 of 112/23/12 4:22 PM

These protocols offer a simple directory structurewhich the user navigates and chooses files to download. Documents were most often presented as plaintext files without formatting, or were encoded in word processor formats.OverviewOrganized by function, a website may bea personal websitea commercial websitea government websitea nonprofit organization website.It could be the work of an individual, a business or other organization, and is typically dedicated to someparticular topic or purpose. Any website can contain a hyperlink to any other website, so the distinctionbetween individual sites, as perceived by the user, may sometimes be blurred.Websites are written in, or dynamically converted to, HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) and areaccessed using a software interface classified as a user agent. Web pages can be viewed or otherwiseaccessed from a range of computer-based and Internet-enabled devices of various sizes, includingdesktop computers, laptops, PDAs and cell phones.A website is hosted on a computer system known as a web server, also called an HTTP server, and theseterms can also refer to the software that runs on these systems and that retrieves and delivers the webpages in response to requests from the website users. Apache is the most commonly used web serverWebsite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Website2 of 112/23/12 4:22 PM
software (according to Netcraft statistics) and Microsoft's IIS is also commonly used. Some alternatives,such as Lighttpd, Hiawatha or Cherokee, are fully functional and lightweight.Static websiteMain article: static web pageA static website is one that has web pages stored on the server in the format that is sent to a client webbrowser. It is primarily coded in Hypertext Markup Language, HTML.Simple forms or marketing examples of websites, such as classic website, a five-page website or abrochure website are often static websites, because they present pre-defined, static information to theuser. This may include information about a company and its products and services via text, photos,animations, audio/video and interactive menus and navigation.This type of website usually displays the same information to all visitors. Similar to handing out aprinted brochure to customers or clients, a static website will generally provide consistent, standardinformation for an extended period of time. Although the website owner may make updates periodically,it is a manual process to edit the text, photos and other content and may require basic website designskills and software.In summary, visitors are not able to control what information they receive via a static website, and mustinstead settle for whatever content the website owner has decided to offer at that time.They are edited using four broad categories of software:Text editors, such as Notepad or TextEdit, where content and HTML markup are manipulateddirectly within the editor programWYSIWYG offline editors, such as Microsoft FrontPage and Adobe Dreamweaver(previously Macromedia Dreamweaver), with which the site is edited using a GUI interfaceand the final HTML markup is generated automatically by the editor softwareWYSIWYG online editors which create media rich online presentation like web pages,widgets, intro, blogs, and other documents.Template-based editors, such as RapidWeaver and iWeb, which allow users to quickly createand upload web pages to a web server without detailed HTML knowledge, as they pick asuitable template from a palette and add pictures and text to it in a desktop publishing fashionwithout direct manipulation of HTML code.Dynamic websiteMain article: dynamic web pageA dynamic website is one that changes or customizes itself frequently and automatically, based oncertain criteria.Dynamic websites can have two types of dynamic activity: Code and Content. Dynamic code is invisibleWebsite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Website3 of 112/23/12 4:22 PM
or behind the scenes and dynamic content is visible or fully displayed.Dynamic codeThe first type is a web page with dynamic code. The code is constructed dynamically on the fly usingactive programming language instead of plain, static HTML.A website with dynamic code refers to its construction or how it is built, and more specifically refers tothe code used to create a single web page. A dynamic web page is generated on the fly by piecingtogether certain blocks of code, procedures or routines. A dynamically-generated web page would recallvarious bits of information from a database and put them together in a pre-defined format to present thereader with a coherent page. It interacts with users in a variety of ways including by reading cookiesrecognizing users' previous history, session variables, server side variables etc., or by using directinteraction (form elements, mouse overs, etc.). A site can display the current state of a dialogue betweenusers, monitor a changing situation, or provide information in some way personalized to therequirements of the individual user.Dynamic contentThe second type is a website with dynamic content displayed in plain view. Variable content is displayeddynamically on the fly based on certain criteria, usually by retrieving content stored in a database.A website with dynamic content refers to how its messages, text, images and other information aredisplayed on the web page, and more specifically how its content changes at any given moment. Theweb page content varies based on certain criteria, either pre-defined rules or variable user input. Forexample, a website with a database of news articles can use a pre-defined rule which tells it to display allnews articles for today's date. This type of dynamic website will automatically show the most currentnews articles on any given date. Another example of dynamic content is when a retail website with adatabase of media products allows a user to input a search request for the keyword Beatles. In response,the content of the web page will spontaneously change the way it looked before, and will then display alist of Beatles products like CDs, DVDs and books.Purpose of dynamic websitesThe main purpose of a dynamic website is automation. A dynamic website can operate more effectively,be built more efficiently and is easier to maintain, update and expand. It is much simpler to build atemplate and a database than to build hundreds or thousands of individual, static HTML web pages.Software systemsThere is a wide range of software systems, such as ANSI C servlets, JavaServer Pages (JSP), the PHP,Perl, Python, and Ruby programming languages, ASP.NET, Active Server Pages (ASP), YUMA andColdFusion (CFML) that are available to generate dynamic web systems and dynamic sites. Sites mayalso include content that is retrieved from one or more databases or by using XML-based technologiessuch as RSS.Website - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Website4 of 112/23/12 4:22 PM
Static content may also be dynamically generated either periodically, or if certain conditions forregeneration occur (cached) in order to avoid the performance loss of initiating the dynamic engine on aper-user or per-connection basis.Plug ins are available to expand the features and abilities of web browsers to show active content oreven create rich internet applications. Examples of such plug-ins are Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash,Adobe Shockwave or applets written in Java. Dynamic HTML also provides for user interactivity andrealtime element updating within web pages (i.e., pages don't have to be loaded or reloaded to effect anychanges), mainly using the Document Object Model (DOM) and JavaScript, support which is built-in tomost modern web browsers.Turning a website into an income source is a common practice for web developers and website owners.There are several methods for creating a website business which fall into two broad categories, asdefined below.Content-based sitesSome websites derive revenue by selling advertising space on their site either through direct sales orthrough an advertising network. (see Contextual advertising).Product- or service-based sitesSome websites derive revenue by offering products or services for sale. In the case of e-commercewebsites, the products or services may be purchased at the website itself, by entering credit card or otherpayment information into a payment form on the site. While most business websites serve as a shopwindow for existing brick and mortar businesses, it is increasingly the case that some websites arebusinesses in their own right; that is, the products they offer are only available for purchase on the web.Websites occasionally derive income from a combination of these two practices. For example, a websitesuch as an online auctions website may charge the users of its auction service to list an auction, but alsodisplay third-party advertisements on the site, from which it derives further income.SpellingThe form "website" has become the standard spelling, but previously "Web site" (capitalised) and "website" were also widely used. Some academia, some large book publishers, and some dictionaries still use"Web site", reflecting the origin of the term in the proper name, World Wide Web. There has also beensimilar debate regarding related terms such as web page, webmaster, and webcam.Among leading style guides, the Reuters style guide,[5] The Chicago Manual of Style,[6] and the APStylebook (since April 2010)[7] all recommend "website".Among leading dictionaries and encyclopedias, the Canadian Oxford Dictionary prefers "website", andthe Oxford English Dictionary changed to "website" in 2004.[8] Wikipedia also uses "website", butEncyclopædia Britannica[9] (including its Merriam-Webster subsidiary[10]) uses "Web site".Website - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Website5 of 112/23/12 4:22 PM
Among leading language-usage commentators, Garner's Modern American Usage acknowledges that"website" is the standard form,[11] but Bill Walsh, of The Washington Post, argues for using "Web site"in his books and on his website[12] (however, The Washington Post itself uses "website"[13]).Among major internet technology companies and corporations, Microsoft uses "website" andoccasionally "web site",[14][15][16] Apple uses "website",[17] and Google uses "website".[18]Types of websitesWebsites can be divided into two broad categories - static and interactive. Interactive sites are part of theWeb 2.0 community of sites, and allow for interactivity between the site owner and site visitors. Staticsites serve or capture information but do not allow engagement with the audience directly.There are many varieties of websites, each specializing in a particular type of content or use, and theymay be arbitrarily classified in any number of ways. A few such classifications might include:Click "show" or "hide" to toggle this tableType of WebsiteDescriptionExamplesAffiliateA site, typically few in pages, whose purpose is to sella third party's product.

Two examples are:Internet Archive, which since 1996 has preservedbillions of old (and new) web pages; and GoogleGroups, which in early 2005 was archiving over845,000,000 messages posted to Usenetnews/discussion groups.Internet Archive, Google GroupsAttack siteA site created specifically to attack visitors computerson their first visit to a website by downloading a file(usually a trojan horse). These websites rely onunsuspecting users with poor anti-virus protection intheir computers.Blog (web log)Sites generally used to post online diaries which mayinclude discussion forums (e.g., blogger, Xanga).Many bloggers use blogs like an editorial section of anewspaper to express their ideas on anything rangingfrom politics to religion to video games to parenting,along with anything in between.
