A website is essentially a collection of web pages that are linked together and accessed over the internet. Think of it like a digital book with interconnected chapters, except each "chapter" can contain text, images, videos, and interactive elements. Websites can be used for a variety of purposes, from sharing information and entertainment to selling products and services.

Here's a simplified breakdown of how a website works:

1. The Building Blocks: 

Websites are built using code, with the most common language being HTML. This code defines the structure and layout of the web pages. 

2. Storage and Hosting: 

Websites reside on special computers called servers, which are always connected to the internet. These servers store all the website's files and codes.

3. Your Gateway to the Website: The Browser 

To access a website, you use a web browser on your device (computer, phone, tablet). Common browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge.

4. Understanding Domain Names and IP Addresses: 

 When you type a website address (like "[invalid URL removed]") into your browser, it doesn't actually understand those words.  Behind the scenes, your browser uses a Domain Name System (DNS) to translate the user-friendly website address into a numerical IP address that the computer can understand.

5. Request and Response: 

Once the browser has the IP address, it sends a request to the server where the website is stored. The server then retrieves the requested files and sends them back to your browser.

6. Rendering the Website:

Finally, your browser interprets the code and files it receives from the server and displays the web page on your screen, allowing you to interact with it. 

So, the next time you browse the web, remember the teamwork between the website's code, servers, browsers, and DNS that allows you to see all the amazing information and services available online.
