Introduction to HTML, CSS & JS

As you may know that HTML is very important for creating any website, because it is a structure of every web page, and here we can establish the main content of our website. We can’t create any website without the use of HTML. CSS & JS are also important in creating a website, let me explain to you with this picture.

Here you can see that HTML is the skelton or we can say that structure of a web page. CSS is the skin or beauty of a web page and JavaScript is the brain. Now suppose there is no structure then for what purpose we need beauty and brain, so that is why I say that HTML is very important for creating any website. We can also make a website only by using HTML, but it doesn’t look attractive. So to make our website stylish we use CSS and by using JavaScript we can make web pages interactive that engages a user. So by using all these three languages our websites looks cool and interactive.

Now you know that what languages are used to create a website and which language is necessary for creating any website. Now it’s also very important to you to understand how website works before getting into a Web Development.

How Website Works?

We will understand the working of a website with a simple real life example. Let’s say you decide to open any shop in the real world. The first thing you have to do is to rent a space for a shop. Similarly for creating a website you have to rent a space on a Server. A Server is a computer system or you can say any device that provides resources, data, services to the computers over the network. It’s called a Server because it serves up the right content when requested by a client. There are many companies that will rent you space on a server and host your website, like Bluehost, Hostinger etc. You have to only pay the hosting fee and they will take care of all technical aspects.

Every single server in the world as its own address, called an IP address. IP address is the long string of numbers by which any device connected to the internet can interact with the server and find it. Its none of your business to understand what they are interacting with each other. All you need to do is to choose a nice name for your website, commonly known as domain name.

So, when someone look up for your website he opens up a browser and type your website’s domain name In the search bar. After that his computer goes online to find the server where your website is stored by using DNS which is short for Domain Name System. As I already told you every single server in the world has an unique IP address. The DNS maintaines the list of which websites are on which server, then tells the users computer where they are. Once the users computer finds the server, it connects with the server then gets the files and HTML code. After that his browser puts it all together into a website. So that the user can clearly see and read your content.
