It is similar to the front cover of a book or a magazine, as it provides an overview and introduction to the content that is available on the website. It is the page that users typically see first when they visit a website and it usually contains links to other pages within the site. The home page is designed to grab the attention of visitors and provide them with a glimpse of what the website has to offer.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    A URL:

    • A.

      Is the same as an IP address, but much easier to remember than a list of numbers.

    • B.

      Is also known as a Web address

    • C.

      Contains a domain name

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The given answer "All of the above" is correct because a URL is indeed the same as an IP address, but it is much easier to remember as it consists of a domain name instead of a list of numbers. Additionally, a URL is also known as a Web address and contains a domain name. Therefore, all three statements in the answer option are true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is NOT an example of a domain name?

    • A.

      Nyu.edu

    • B.

      Cnn.ext

    • C.

      Novemberlearning.com

    • D.

      Whitehouse.gov

    Correct Answer
    B. Cnn.ext
    Explanation
    The domain name "cnn.ext" is not a valid example because it does not follow the typical format of a domain name. Domain names usually consist of two or more parts separated by dots, with the last part representing the top-level domain (TLD). In this case, "ext" does not represent a recognized TLD, making it an invalid domain name.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    A domain name:

      Can sometimes tell you about the Web browser you are using

    • B.

      May be designed to fool you about the actual content of the site

    • C.

      Will never contain an extension

    • D.

      Tells you absolutely nothing about the content of a site - ever

    Correct Answer
    B. May be designed to fool you about the actual content of the site
    Explanation
    A domain name may be designed to fool you about the actual content of the site. This means that the domain name itself may be misleading or deceptive, giving the impression that the website offers certain content or services when it actually does not. This can be done intentionally to trick users into visiting the site or to gain their trust for malicious purposes. It is important for users to be cautious and verify the credibility of a website before providing any personal information or engaging with its content.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    How do you truncate a Web address?

    • A.

      Remove the domain name from the URL

    • B.

      Remove the http:// or the www. from the URL

    • C.

      Remove levels from the URLs right to the left until you are left with the domain name

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Remove levels from the URLs right to the left until you are left with the domain name
    Explanation
    To truncate a web address, you need to remove levels from the URLs right to the left until you are left with the domain name. This means removing any subdomains or directories in the URL, and keeping only the main domain name. Removing the domain name or the http:// or www. from the URL would not be considered truncating the web address. Therefore, the correct answer is to remove levels from the URLs right to the left until you are left with the domain name.

      To help find the homepage of a Web site

    • C.

      To help find more information on a Web site

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer

It can also help find the homepage of a website by removing unnecessary subdirectories. Additionally, truncating a URL can help find more information on a website by eliminating specific page addresses and allowing access to the main domain. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above."
