Definitions of terms you may not understand but should be aware of:
Domain – the address where your website lives (www.exampleofdomain.com). You need to obtain a domain from a domain registrar and then use DNS records to tell the domain registrar where the files for your website are hosted. If you would like me to manage the registration of your domain, please contact me.
Host – This is a computer that literally hosts the files that make up your website. You need to purchase computer space (called server space) from a hosting company. I do my managed hosting through a great company called BigScoots. You can manage your hosting through me or sign up for your own! This plan means that if you have problems at the server level, you will be the one to deal with these problems as I will not have access to your host.
WordPress – Think of this as the operating system for your website. If you were on blogger or SquareSpace, you were on a different website operating system.
Theme – This is the framework that styles your website. It gives you templates of how things will generally look, though customization is still required. It is kind of like using a template for PowerPoint – the bones are there but you still need to go in and make it your own with custom fonts, colors, and layouts.
Child Theme – This is another level of a framework to style your website. It basically takes your main theme (template) and stores the changes you make. The reason for doing this is when the theme creator releases an update to the main theme, your customizations can be erased with every update. With a child theme, the main theme is updated and the child theme template changes will still remain on top, preserving your customization.
Plugins – These are small pieces of pre-written code that allow you to do special things on your website. There is literally a plugin for everything. Some are free, some are paid. Just be careful not to install too many plugins as it could slow down your website.
