Today, many top websites of big brands are gaining success as having a website is the most effective way to grow a business. The success of a website is all about great design and good user – experience. But did you ever wonder what’s under the hat? There are certain tools and technologies that make the magic works for a business.HTML and CSS are two building blocks for designing a website, whereas knowledge of JavaScript and Bootstrap will give you an added advantage in building a website.

If you want to build a website, you have two options. Either you can build it yourself using any of website creation templates available online or by hiring a well–recognized website Design Company located near you. Designing a website is simple unless you have knowledge of few basic technologies of the website development. In this article, we will discuss some technologies which are considered as a minimum requirement to develop one for yourself. 

  • HTML, the coding language of the web
  • CSS, the language for styling web pages
  • JavaScript, for coding better user experiences
  • Bootstrap, for front-end framework
  • PHP 

Let us look at these in detail.


HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and it provides structure to a website so that web browsers know what to show. The web design is a process of visual communication and this technology used to create attractive web pages and user –interfaces. The process allows embedding of images and other objects that can be used for creating interactive forms. 

HTML uses logical and semantics tags, such as headings, paragraphs, quotes, lists and links. 


CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. The language is used for describing how a document written in a Markup Language.CSS is the most useful technology for creating visually engaging web pages and user interfaces. The CSS is designed to separate content from document presentation hence improve the content accessibility.

CSS can be applied to other documents as well, XHTML (X stands for Extensible), XML (Extensible Markup Language), XUL (XML User Interface) or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics). 


PHP is a fast, server-side scripting language that is used to create interactive, dynamic websites. It is particularly well-suited to integrating with a range of databases.


JavaScript is a lightweight scripting technology which is used alongside XHTML documents to make websites more interactive. The application programming interface (API) of JavaScript allows working with text, dates and other regular expressions. 


Bootstrap is a general-purpose scripting language that is free and open-source. Frameworks are meant to alleviate the overheads in web development, such as database access, templating and session management. Bootstrap contains HTML and CSS-based templates and JavaScript extensions.

Although you can create a simple website without using JavaScript nor Bootstrap, but it helps to upgrade it to a full-fledged website later on.
