A web page is a document created in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and other languages and is displayed by your web browser. A collection of two or more web pages is called a website.
The content required to create a web page could be delivered by different companies. For example, the main content of a page could be provided by its owner (first-party), but that company may contract others (third-parties) to provide complementary or supplementary content such as pictures or video content, weather reports, stock and share price tickers, advertising, etc.
Web pages are made up of many programming languages
Websites can be made as simple or as complex as the site owner needs them to be. Some websites are just built on pure HTML coding while others require more complex code to run and operate.
These languages can include:
Some web pages and sites are built with WordPress
Over the years as users have changed the way they use the internet, so has the need for more complex website coding.
Many of today's websites run on a platform called WordPress, a PHP program that was built for looking after larger websites with ease.
What benefits does WordPress have over HTML?
- Once WordPress is installed a web page can be created in minutes with no coding skills.
- Images can be edited right from the browser.
- The site will be fully responsive and mobile-friendly.
- Any changes to a site's menu are done in seconds.
- Logo changes can be as simple as a click of a button.
- Adding media to your webpage is a simple process of uploading and saving the file.
Does WordPress mean HTML is going away?
No, HTML websites are still plentiful. With around 1.7 billion websites in the world, HTML is still used by 93% of all websites as the main markup language. Websites would not be around today without HTML or CSS code.
