Quick Index
-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.

-domain name costs
Costs of registering a domain name can vary from $14.95 per year to $49.99 per year, depending on the registrar you select. We don’t recommend purchasing your domain name until you select a hosting provider, as some hosting providers do offer package deals with the hosting and domain name sold together. If you already do own your domain name, the hosting service provider may charge an additional fee for the transfer of the domain name.

-Graphic Optimization
the process of converting images into web safe colors and web safe resolution.

-Graphical User Interface (GUI)
A boundary across which two independent systems meet and act on or communicate with each other. In computer technology, there are several types of interfaces. Within a web site, it is the graphical based navigation platform which makes surfing the site possible.

-Hosting Service Provider, host, hosting
Hosting Services Provider (HSP) is an application service provider dedicated to providing hosting services. Typically operates a Web server farm, either at a data center or colocation facility

-Internet Service Provider, ISP
Short for Internet Service Provider, a company that provides access to the Internet. For a monthly fee, the service provider gives you a software package, username, password and access phone number. Equipped with a modem, you can then log on to the Internet and browse the World Wide Web and USENET, and send and receive e-mail.

-merchant account
An account set up with a third party that makes accepting credit cards on a web site possible. An example of such a service would be PayPal™.

-navigation
Graphical user interface or button interface that makes surfing a web site possible. The ability to click through the web site.

-Reconstruction
The process of digitally correcting or fixing an image from its’ original physical copy

-Resolution
The degree of sharpness of a displayed or printed character or image. On screen, resolution is expressed as a matrix of dots. For example, the VGA resolution of 640×480 means 640 dots (pixels) across each of the 480 lines. Sometimes the number of colors are added to the spec; for example, 640x480x16 or 640x480x256. The same resolution looks sharper on a small screen than a larger one.

-shopping cart
A shopping cart is a piece of software that acts as an online store’s catalog and ordering process. Typically, a shopping cart is the interface between a company’s web site and its deeper infrastructure, allowing consumers to select merchandise; review what they have selected; make necessary modifications or additions; and purchase the merchandise. Shopping carts can be sold as independent pieces of software so companies can integrate them into their own unique online solution, or they can be offered as a feature from a service that will create and host a company’s e-commerce site.

-spidering
A program that automatically fetches Web pages. Spiders are used to feed pages to search engines. It’s called a spider because it crawls over the Web. Another term for these programs is webcrawler.
Because most Web pages contain links to other pages, a spider can start almost anywhere. As soon as it sees a link to another page, it goes off and fetches it. Large search engines, like Alta Vista, have many spiders working in parallel.
