This week I am doing something different from my typical textbook blog. I’ve been hard at work on the DireLights website. I have also been working on a website for Happytime Preschool, which is in Pismo Beach. In this blog post, I wanna go over the different aspects that go into making and hosting a website. There is a lot to learn when it comes to creating and managing websites, but it is a very useful skill to have, especially in business
All websites are hosted on servers. A server is a computer that has all the files of the website, and sends them to people who want to access it. The easiest way to get a webserver up and running is to rent a cloud server. This is a monthly fee, and all the hard work is done for you. A server is hosted by a company, and you don’t have to manage having a physical computer. Customer support is available to help you if anything goes wrong. You are able to remote access the controls to your webserver, as well as the files and command line.
