Many clients are often puzzled over some of the terms frequently associated with the Web Design/development process. Here are LSEB Web's top 5 Web Site Terminology for this week

1. Content Management System (CMS)

In the context of a Web site a CMS is a collection of tools designed to allow the creation, modification organisation and removal of information from a Web site. It is common for a CMS to require users to have no knowledge of HTML in order to create new Web pages.

2. E-commerce

E-commerce (electronic commerce) is the process of buying, selling and transferring money through the internet.

3. Hits

This term refers to the number of files that are downloaded from a web server. Keeping track of hits is a way of measuring traffic to a website that can be misleading. The number of hits a site receives is usually much greater than the number of actual visitors. That's because a web page can contain more than one file. For example, each graphic element is a separate file, so a page with nine graphics would count as ten hits, one for each graphic and one for the HTML file. In this scenario, a page may have 10,000 hits, but only 1,000 visits.

4. JavaScript

JavaScript is a client-side scripting language used to create dynamic Web pages. JavaScript should not be confused with Java, the full featured programming language.

5. Quick Response code (QR Tag)

A QR Tag is a two-dimensional barcode that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data.
