AJAX is a technology used to add richness and interactivity to web pages. It was invented by a man at Google and has become a standard feature on many modern websites.
In terms of website design, an API can be thought of as a small computer program that can be used to access popular services such as Google maps and Google charts.
A blog is a good way of keeping a website fresh and up to date. Many blogging packages are available: some are easy to set up and manage; others are feature-rich and much more complicated.
A browser is the program you use to view web pages. Popular browsers include Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. Some people are surprised to learn that different browsers can often display the same web page differently. Because of this, thorough testing in all major browsers is essential when making websites.
A CMS, or Content Management System, is a sort of admin area that can be used to update, edit or delete website content. Some Content Management Systems are very basic; others are more comprehensive and give site owners control over almost every aspect of their site.
CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is a design language used to control the layout and presentation of web pages.
A database is really just a collection of information. The information might be the names and addresses of your clients; it might be an inventory of your stock; or it might be a listing of room rates and availability at a hotel.
A domain name is basically the address of a website; ie, abc.com.
Encryption is often necessary to prevent unauthorized access to confidential or sensitive information. The difference between encrypting and encoding is that encrypted content cannot be decrypted.
Flash is used to add animation, slideshows and video to websites. It's less popular today than in the past as many people find it unnecessary and distracting.
See the entry for Server.
HTML, or Hypertext Markup Language, is the core language used for making websites. Many website designers use a version of the language called XHTML.
PHP, or PHP Hypertext Protocol, is a programming language used to manage information on the server. It is often used in conjunction with AJAX to control the appearance and content of web pages.
SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, refers to the techniques that are used to help websites achieve high rankings in Google, Yahoo or Bing.
All websites need to be hosted on a server. Choosing a server is similar to choosing a service provider for a mobile phone: numerous packages are available, and variations in price and quality can be considerable.
SQL, or Structured Query Language, is a language used for retrieving information from a database.
XHTML, or Extensible Hypertext Markup Language, is basically another version of HTML.
