What Is A Website?

What Is A Website?

One can compare the process of building a website to the building of a retail store.


To build a retail store one needs 3 main structures:

1) A Parcel of Land with an address – a Domain Name (URL).
2) A Foundation to hold the store – a Hosting Provider.
3) The retail store itself – a building (WordPress) with different rooms holding content (Niche).

It is an interface on the Internet. Any time you click on to an Internet Browser, (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, or Safari) you are looking at a website.

Hi DR. Dillon, I enjoyed your perspective on the website. I wish that when I first started out in this business, somebody would have explained to me what a website is, the way you have explained it here. Good job.

I totally agree, you can’t have a online business without those elements. It’s like have real estate online. The best part about building a business online is that you can do it from the comfort of your own home. It’s also nice because you don’t need the manpower like you would a brick and mortar business. Lot’s of people are realizing this and taking advantage of the online opportunity. You’ve provided some fantastic information that many people will take advantage of. Thanks!

Hi Dr. Susie,
Just wanted to thank you for this excellent analogy of what a website is. Great way to compare it to physical business and makes it super easy to understand.

The only thing better is to grow that website from a retail shop to a skyscraper. Anyways, have a great day and take care.

    Thank you! I will be updating this page and when I do I will remember to represent it as a skyscraper!
