The world of technology is a wonderful place. In fact, it’s like a world within the world. Moreover, the technology space has its own language and its own way to everything that the non-technical layman does in the physical world. Subsequently, part of this world is websites and website technology. Let’s dive into this world and go over how to actually create a website. Read on for the full scoop…

What makes up a computer?

A computer consists of hardware and software. Firstly, hardware is the physical parts of the computer.  It consists of the screen, the keyboard, the computer chip and so on.  Secondly, software is the code that gives the computer instructions on how to behave. Consequently, press the enter key and the software tells the computer what to do.

What is computer code?

Computer code or a programming language is generally a series of numbers, digits or characters.  In fact, this is what gives a computer instructions on what to do. Subsequently, the brain behind a computer is the software or code, which is programmed into the computer chip.

Code defined

A programming language is a system of notation for writing computer programs. Most programming languages are text-based formal languages, but they may also be graphical. They are a kind of computer language.

The type of code that is used to build a website

The type of code used to build a website is different to the code that makes up the software component of a computer. In fact, there are many different types of computer languages. Moreover, websites are mostly built by mark-up languages or object oriented languages.

The most common types of code used to build websites are:


Javascript is popular to use in computer gaming development and is good to use if rich graphics are being used.


HTML is an essential and very widely used language in website development.


Is used in conjunction with HTML for ascetics on websites. It gives instructions on the size, color and position of elements.


PHP is a great language to use to build your first website. 

Who builds websites?

A website developer who can write in one of these types of code, builds websites using the code. In fact, the web developer uses an editing platform like Notepad++ or Coffee Cup to write the code up in. 

There are a few different types of website developers, namely:

Back-end web developers:

They create the website’s structure, write the code and verify the code.

Front-end web developers

They work on the visual parts of the website.

Full-stack web developers

Full-stack developers do the job of both the back-end and front-end developers.


Webmasters are website managers and detail with maintenance.

Website designers

Web designers use block building technologies to design a website and use the same technologies to maintain those websites.
