Web host, web browser, and domain name explained
A web host is a company that has computers hooked up to the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. These aren't your average computers. These are servers and they are assigned Internet Protocol (IP) address so that anyone connected to the internet can connect to the information hosted on these servers. All of your web files are stored on these secure servers.
To break it down: Olwyn sits down at her computer and types a URL/domain name/web address into the address bar of her browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.). As soon as she hits enter, her browser sends a request to 'get' that web page. The request zooms through cyberspace until it arrives at the appropriate web server, finds the correct page and returns the information to Olwyn on her web browser.
nrichmedia works with eco businesses and organizations. These include LEED certified architects, green builders, health centres, eco resorts, yoga studios, organic food producers, farmers markets, counsellors, healing professionals, musicians, artists, hand-made bath and beauty products, safety programs, green technology innovators, foundations and non-profit organizations.
