We answer frequently asked questions you may have.
In this page we will fill out some help and explanations in terms of the web pages and the Internet in general.
What is Domain Name?
The domain is the email address of your page. This address may be your business name or something completely irrelevant.
Each domain with its ending is UNIQUE. For example, if our domain is furniture.com, we exclude a second site with the same domain.
The main domains are the ones that come to fruition
- .gr (Greece) for pages targeting the Greek public
- .com (Commercial) for companies targeting the global audience
- .net (Network)
- .info (Information)
- .gov (Government sites)
For more information, please visit the EETT (National Telecommunications and Post Commission) page, which is also responsible for the domains. For EETT click here.
What is Hosting?
Each website is a series of files. Whether we are talking about the files on the site where the page code is located, or about photos, files, videos, etc, they must be stored somewhere so they can be online.
Website hosting has an important role in the speed, security and stability of each website. Depending on the requirements of our site we need to count the hosting we need. Some parameters that need to be considered when it comes to hosting is its size, bandwidth, it can support databases, have high speed, maybe have daily backup etc.
What is CMS?
CMS (Content Management Systems) are content management systems. Now most sites are based on CMS. This is because you do not need a website to stand from scratch. The CMS already has an initial set of functions, and each site is set up and configured there. Another reason is that such a site has great scalability (compared, for example, with a static site).
So a site is implemented:
- Friendly in management
- With expansion capabilities
The main CMSs are WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal for generic sites and blogs, and there are more specialized ones for other uses.
As some for example:
- Opencart, Magento, Prestashop (Eshops)
- Phpbb, ipboard, vbulletin (Forums)
- Phpfox, Elgg, Oxwall (Social network)
and many more …
What is a template?
The template or theme or skin is basically the look of your site. Each website is divided into the functional part and the design. Templates help us to change the look of the site relatively quickly, without affecting the content. There are also templates that may be more suited to specific categories of websites, such as sports, restaurants, hotels, bands,
Templates are mainly divided into:
- Simply, usually free
- Professionally, they are more thoughtful and beautiful and perhaps with built-in functions. They can cost from 20-200 €
- Custom. These are topics that may have been created exclusively for you and you will not see them on other sites. Prices can start from 200 € up some chililades euro
