A

  • Animated banner: see Animated gif

  • Animated gif (graphic): A moving picture in GIF format, which is made up of a series of frames. When displayed, they provide a short animated sequence that can be made to cycle over and over without stopping. Although popular on the Web, animated GIFs are larger than single-frame GIFs and can be annoying when downloaded over slow dial-up connections.

  • Animations with sound

  • Audio

  • Background texture/color

  • Banner Ad: A graphic image used on Web sites to advertise a product or service. Banner ads come in numerous sizes, but are often rectangles 460 pixels wide by 60 pixels high. Also 460 x 55 and 392 x 72 sizes are commonly used.

  • Banner exchange program: A banner exchange is a program in which each member of the exchange helps themselves by helping their fellow webmasters. Each time a member's web page is loaded with a 468x60 banner on it (much like the one at the top of this page), that member gets a certain number of credits. Each credit is then automatically spent to show their own banner on another web site. When the banner is clicked on, it directs the viewer to the owner's site. The more traffic you get, the more banners you show. The more banners you show, the more banners are shown of yours, which in turn leads to more traffic, more banners shown, etc.

  • Bookmarks: A bookmark is a location or selected text on a page that you have marked. You can use bookmarks as a destination for a hyperlink. For example, if you want to display a certain section of a page to the site visitor, add a hyperlink with the bookmark as its destination. When the site visitor clicks the hyperlink, the relevant part of the page is displayed, rather than the top of the page.

C

  • CGI script: (Common Gateway Interface script) A small program written in a language such as Perl, Tcl, C or C++ that functions as the glue between HTML pages and other programs on the Web server. For example, a CGI script would allow search data entered on a Web page to be sent to the DBMS (database management system) for lookup. It would also format the results of that search as an HTML page and send it back to the user. The CGI script resides in the server and obtains the data from the user via environment variables that the Web server makes available to it.

  • Chat room: An interactive discussion (by keyboard) about a specific topic that is hosted on the Internet or on a BBS. On the Internet, chat rooms are available from major services such as AOL, individual Web sites and the Internet Relay Chat (IRC) system, the Net's traditional computer conferencing.

  • Consultant: A person who acts as an advisor to users or to the technical staff. Consultants are available for all aspects of the computer industry.

  • Content: On the Internet, content is any information that is available for retrieval by the user, including Web pages, images, music, audio, white papers, driver and software downloads as well as training, educational and reference materials.

  • Content changes: see Content

  • Content development

  • Countdown timer: A versatile and practical script that counts down to any given date specified, down to the final day.

D

  • DHTML: (Dynamic HTML) A combination of HTML enhancements, scripting language and interface that are used to deliver animations, interactions and dynamic updating on Web pages.

  • Database: A set of related files that is created and managed by a database management system (DBMS). Today, DBMSs can manage any form of data including text, images, sound and video. Database and file structures are always determined by the software. As far as the hardware is concerned, it's all bits and bytes.

  • Digital photography: Taking pictures with a digital camera and storing and printing them on digital devices. The "digital film," which is comprised of flash memory modules, floppy disks or CD-Rs, can be transferred to a local computer for printing, or it can be uploaded to a Web site for viewing and printing.

  • Domain name: The term may refer to any type of domain within the computer field, since there are several types of domains. However, today, it often refers to the address of an Internet site.

E

  • E-Commerce: (Electronic-COMMERCE) Doing business online, typically via the Web. It is also called "e-business," "e-tailing" and "I-commerce." Although in most cases e-commerce and e-business are synonymous, e-commerce implies that goods and services can be purchased online, whereas e-business might be used as more of an umbrella term for a total presence on the Web, which would naturally include the e-commerce (shopping) component.

  • Internet domain name: An organization's unique name on the Internet. As of early 2001, there were more than 20 million registered domain names. The name chosen by the organization combined with a top level domain (TLD) makes up the Internet domain name. For example, projectpc.net is the domain name for the owner of this Web site.

    In order to access the Project PC site, you have to type in www.projectpc.net, because the "www" is the name given to the computer that actually hosts the site. WWW is commonly used for uniformity on the Web, but different names are also widely used. For example, demo.projectpc.net could be just as valid a name.

    Technically, projectpc.net is a "second level domain," because the top level domain is .net. Projectpc.net is also known as a "root domain." In practice, both projectpc.net and www.projectpc.net are called domain names.

    Internet domain names are registered with any of several dozen registrars. To find out if a name is already taken, visit www.netsol.com or www.icann.org
