Chapter 1. The Web in a Nutshell > Who Are the Webmasters?

1.6. Who Are the Webmasters?

So if that's the Web in a nutshell, who are the webmasters? The title "webmaster," or "web developer", vaguely means a person who works on the content end of the web. When you examine what webmasters actually do, there are many different definitions. On a typical web site, the responsibilities can be broken into four general groups:


Content providers

Work on the data itself—creating or editing HTML documents, incorporating images and forms, and maintaining the integrity of the links.


Designers

Create the images and also define the "look" of the site.


Programmers

Write CGI, Java, JavaScript, and other programs to incorporate to the web site.


Administrators

Make sure that the server is running properly and efficiently at all times. They might also be responsible for establishing new content development areas, writing new scripts, and maintaining the security of sensitive documents and of the site in general.
