A website might be created by anyone for any number of reasons. Most often the case is to present information to the outside world about any matter. A website may give access to the entire world or access may be contained within a certain network or a pre-selected group of users.
A website is commonly accessed through its unique URI (Uniform Resource Identifier), which is usually a web domain. (E.g. example.com) However, it is possible to access a website through an IP or even a hostname.
