Content Management System.

It's a well developed, secure and highly customizable website-framework. By default it's empty, the content must be created by the end user, basically by creating menus and writing atricles.

The framework can be extended with 3rd party modules or plug-ins, easily creating very complex websites. The layout of the website can be changed by installing new templates. The simple modules and templates are free, the complex ones must be licensed.

Advantages:

cms joomla wordpress drupal
  • Open source (free)
  • Very stable and relatively secure code. Frequent upgrades
  • Lots of modules and plug-ins are available for free
  • The layout of the site can be changed easily
  • There are lots of documenations available on the internet about using, configuring, extending, etc.

Disadvantages:

  • The active developement ends after several years and new, non-backward-compatible versions may appear.
  • Due to the open source nature of the code, there are always security issues
  • Although modules and plugins are configurable, if a special functionality or layout is needed, it must be implemented by a website developer. This way the costs of the final website can be much higher than initially thought.
  • For many people is difficult to add new content due to the complexity of the back-end and the high possibility to accidentally modify/delete something that alters the functioning of the site.

Domain

The domain name is the unique text identifying a website on the internet, like "yahoo". Domain names always end with a suffix, identifying a country or a special domain. Thus, "yahoo.de" identifies the "yahoo" site from Germany (deutschland). Special suffixes identify special-purpose sites, like:

domains
  • .com - commercial
  • .net - network
  • .org - organization
  • .gov - government
  • .info - info
  • .ws - website
  • .eu - european

etc.

Some country-related domains can be purchased for a fixed amount and the ownership never expires. Eg. a .ro domain can be purchased for ~40€. The price varies from country to cuntry.

Most of the domains can be rented on a yearly basis. Eg. a .com domain can be rented for ~12€ per year.

Taken domains cannot be rented even if there is no website set up for the given domain.

Web Hosting

servers

The hosting is a service. It's subject is a computer, called "server", owned by a hosting company.

The files and the database of a website are stored on a server. The servers are special computers, with expensibve but durable hardware, running 24/24 hours. Beside storing the files, servers also "serve" incoming web-requests by rendering the requested web pages and then sending back the result to the visitors. Powerful servers can satisfy even several thousand requests per second.

The prices of a hosting are varying from 2-6€ to 100-600€ per month, depending on the website's traffic. For standard websites, the cheapest services are far enough.
