Basics of Website Designing

The influence of the World Wide Web has penetrated the lives of one and all in these past couple of decades and there may be a very tiny section that is yet to be acquainted with website designing. When ever a person seeks information in the internet, he/she accesses a particular web site that contains many pages that display the information sought for. Every website is different from the other in terms of content, layout, performance etc, with which, the website designer can be credited. The first person to have created a website was Tim Berners Lee, in the early 1990’s, who at that time was working with the CERN, a renowned Physics institute. He can be called the father of the World Wide Web.

Tim Burners Lee came up with this idea when he was driven with the necessity to circulate his research papers among the concerned people. He then decided to work upon HTML and browser software (so, during that time, web page development became synonymous with web browser development). Mosaic web browser, in around 1993 became the platform of information sharing among the scientists of CERN. The Web pages could then support only text and nothing else. In 1994, the HTML language was developed and HTML 2, 3 and 4 was created.

The next stage witnessed only technological improvements, (like introduction of icons in place of words). During this phase companies became more aware of web sites and began maintaining some because they thought it will help them make more profits. As time passed by, web pages were linked with utility purposes like information, sales, enquiries and so on, which made it gain huge popularity among the masses. This triggered the drive to create better and more useful websites and from the late 1990s, people started to take up website designing as profession. There was no looking back since then. Websites as we know it today was thus, born.
