    The History of the Internet is consisted not more than 25 years ago. In 1990’s internet was invented in the result of development in telegraph system. The main purpose was to move the digital data between two different places easily and instantly in the form of electromagnetic mediums other than writing on the paper and mailing by post which requires days to transfer. By the passage of time the improvements result widely and now you are able not only to send data but this has become the most power full source to communicate. This is a well source of information related to every field of life as well as business.

    What is a website?

    A website is consisted of different kind of pages which may contain images, videos etc. The website is required to be hosted by a server that can be accessed only through internet. Each website has its unique name which permits everyone to access through its name called URL. A website can be of two types Static one or dynamic one. A webpage can be written in simple text form or in a complex one which contains languages that are working behind it. We may categorize a website in 4 forms that can be for personal use website, a Business website, government website or a non-profit organization website. Below are some of the major benefits of having a website:

Another advantage of website is that the people have an access to you up to 24 hours and 7 days a week no matter it is a holiday or the end of the day when the shops have to close. You can post your unlimited business ads not to pay each ad each time to play on TV or to advertise in newspapers.

    Pretty cool article. I can say that everyone have a possibility of owning a website but it all depends if they want to learn how to manage it and patient enough to wait for results.

    Most people think that if they start a website today it's going to be brought for $35Million tomorrow by some big corporation, they don't realize the amount of effort and work that needs to go into it.

    Overall a very good article, and a great read.

    There's is no doubt that Internet offers us huge advertising opportunities, but we should now that it is not the best way to advertise your business. For instance, if you have a local company, which offers services over an area of a few close cities, there's no point to invest too much in a website, as you won't have too many visitors. Is just an example, and keep in mind that your best advertise, is the quality of your work! :)
