What is HTML?
In this video we'll talk about HTML; what it is, how it works, and how the Internet as a whole works.
When to use
Whenever you type a domain name into your web browser, the browser gets the address for that website from a name server, retrieves the HTML from a web server, and then converts that HTML into the graphical visual interface that you see in the browser.
Hints & tips
- HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language
- HTML is a front-end web development tool
- The web browser takes HTML, interprets it, and outputs the visual web page to the screen
