Browsers
A browser is an application program that provides a way to look at and interact with all the information on the World Wide Web.  Technically, a Web browser is a client program that uses the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)  to make requests of Web servers  throughout the Internet on behalf of the browser user.

Domain Name
On the Web, the domain name is that part of the  URL (Uniform Resource Locator) that tells a domain name server using the DNS (Domain Name System) whether and where to forward a request for a Web page. The domain name is mapped to an IP address (which represents a physical point on the Internet).

Web Hosting
Hosting is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more web sites.   More important than the computer space that is provided for web site files is the fast connection to the Internet.  Using a hosting service lets many companies share the cost of a fast Internet connection for serving files.  Each web site can  have its own domain name and set of e-mail addresses.

Domain/Hosting Recommendation
I have used CI Host since 1998 and found their DNS registration and  hosting packages to be the best in the industry.  Their support has been fantastic.  It's nice to be able to call a toll-free number at 2am and get a real person on the phone with real answers to my questions.  Clients I have set up through CI Host are equally satisfied with their services.

FTP
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), a standard Internet protocol, is the simplest way to exchange files between computers on the Internet.  FTP is commonly used to transfer Web page files from their creator to the computer that acts as their server for everyone on the Internet.  It's also commonly used to download programs and other files to your computer from other servers.
What is FTP?

Anti-Virus
Antivirus (or "anti-virus") software is a class of program that searches your hard drive and floppy disks for any known or potential viruses.  If you currently do not have an updated program, I recommend the following FREE program.
Download AVG Anti Virus 7.1 System

WinZip
WinZip is a straightforward, fast, and easy-to-use zipping and unzipping utility that includes built-in support for popular Internet file formats such as TAR, ZIP, UUencode, XXencode, BinHex, MIME, and Unix-compressed files.
Download WinZip 10.0 Free Trial

Plug-Ins
Plug-in applications are programs that can easily be installed and used as part of your Web browser.  A plug-in application is recognized automatically by the browser and its function is integrated into the main HTML file that is being presented.

Search Engines
On the Internet, a search engine is a coordinated set of programs that include:

A spider (also called a "crawler" or a "bot") that goes to every page or representative pages on every Web site that wants to be searchable and reads it, using hypertext links on each page to discover and read a site's other pages.

A program that creates a huge index (sometimes called a "catalog") from the pages that have been read.

A program that receives your search request, compares it to the entries in the index, and returns results to you.
