Terms you need to understand for your artist website

Tech Terms for artist websites header

Ah, technology. We love it, but we wish we didn’t have to deal with all its dangly bits. A laptop is awesome, but you have to set it up, and actually install the apps you need, and troubleshoot stuff. Arrrgghh!

It’s the same with your artist’s website. You want it to look good and to do stuff for you; market your creations, tell the world what you do, sell your work, etc. But between now and that place, there is a minefield of dangly things to learn and understand.

I wrote an article for Valley of Writers that looks at a number of common tech terms that pertain to website development. It is targeted at writers, as with all my articles on that site, but you will find that this pertains to anyone working on a website; writer, artist, or other careers/organizations.

As you take your journey into getting your site developed, or updated, or as you think about how to get your website to do more work for you as an artist, this is a super useful glossary of terms.

Here is the list of terms covered:

  1. Admin Access
  2. Backend
  3. Blog
  4. CMS | Content Management System
  5. Domain Name
  6. DNS
  7. DNS Records
