  4. WEBMASTER
  5. DOMAIN NAME
  6. HOSTING
  7. CONTENT

1.- WEBSITE

A set of files (Images, Videos, Object, Code and Scripts) stored on a computer/server that allows visitors to view them using a browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge, etc). This set of files can reside in a computer at your office (very atypical setup) or on a server of a hosting company (1&1, Network Solutions, GoDaddy, iPages, Azure, etc)

2.- WEB DESIGNER/PROGRAMMER

This is the individual that presents ideas about how your website will look and operate.
