Whenever you use the internet, you visit websites, whether they're a single page or a complex assortment of content and pages. Popular websites provide information, discussion forums, videos, shopping, and much more. We visit websites to get the weather report, buy plane tickets, listen to music, check school calendars, and post vacation photos.
