When you embark on the task of getting your own website set up you are confronted with a lot of technical jargon you might be unfamiliar with. You know how you want your website to look, but how can you explain it to a web designer that expects you to decide on technical aspects you don’t know about?
Thank you for joining us again! Today we bring our fourth set of web design definitions you need to have handy when you decide to get a brand new website for our business. Here at Clicks & Mortar Websites we’ve come up with a small glossary of 25 Web Design definitions that should make your journey a bit easier. We hope you find them useful!
- HYPERLINK: a content that “links” one page on a website to another, either on the same site or different one. For example, when you click on the FAQs text on our homepage, you are using a hyperlink to take you to said section.
- DNS: it stands for Doman Name Service; it translates IP addresses into a domain name. Where a platform reads a bunch of numbers, DNS translates them into your website’s name.
- LANDING PAGE: this is the first page a visitor sees when accessing a website. It may contain a number of things. For example, if your site requires a subscription, the landing page will ask visitors for their user name and password.
- MARKUP: this refers to the coding applied to a text document to change it into an HTML document.
- META DATA: a chunk of data, invisible to the visitor of a website, that offers information about the web page that’s currently been viewed.
We’re almost done! Here at Clicks & Mortar Websites we’re glad you’ve joined us in this little journey. See you soon for our final five web design definitions you need to know!
