How does a website work?

A website is a collection of files (pages) that can be read by browsers. Some popular browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc. Browsers find these files on publicly accessble computers called web servers. Each server has a unique address so that browsers know where the server is located. An example of an address would be "".

The contents of a webpage file are written in a way that the browser can understand. Usually that entails a combination of html, css, and the text you want to be displayed (in any language). If you don't know how to write html or css code and don't have time to learn, you will need to either turn to a web developer or find a web application that automatically codes html and css behind the scenes.
