A website isn’t just a website – these days, there are countless ways to create an online presence in a way that matches your expectations. The ‘Websites’ section of the IONOS Digital Guide offers detailed information about creating, managing, and optimizing websites as well as facts and general background information on the World Wide Web.

What’s in the IONOS Website Guide?

The ‘Websites’ section is one of six main categories in the IONOS Digital Guide. ‘Websites’ is then broken down into four further subcategories: ‘Website creation, ‘Web design’, ‘Web development’, and ‘Digital law’. While ‘Website creation’ focuses primarily on the technical aspects of internet sites, ‘Web design’ articles look at the optical makeup of content, in particular the use of text, images, and responsive displays through HTML or CSS. ‘Web development’ covers the use of scripting languages, like PHP or JavaScript, as well as specific tools for the development of internet services. But basic information about the standards and trends of website development can also be found here. The subcategory ‘Digital law’ presents online laws and practices, like image usage rights and privacy policies.
