 Search Engine Optimisation / Registration
As more websites are created around the world, the chances of your site appearing near the top of a search results list becomes less likely, depending on how much competition you have on the Internet. Some companies specialise in promoting your site via search engines. Whether it is worthwhile to pay for their services or not, depends on the nature of your website, and who and where your expected site visitors are.   
 
 Search engine optimisation
means designing and building a website in order to get the maximum exposure in search engines. Among other things, this involves building key words and phrases into the site which aren't seen by visitors.   
 
 Search engine registration
is the act of registering your website with a number of search engines, either locally and/or internationally. Knowing which engines to register with, to target your audience, is half the battle. Registering with any engine doesn't guarantee that your site will show in the results list. Some allow you to register for free, while others make you pay.   
 
 Static Content
Website content (words and pictures) which is updated manually, as opposed to dynamic content. Implementing a website with static content is generally quite cost effective, and suits websites where information isn't expected to change often, such as a brochure website.   
 
 Server
A computer, or a software package, that provides a specific kind of service to client software running on other computers. The term can refer to a particular piece of software, such as a WWW server, or to the machine on which the software is running, e.g.Our mail server is down today, that's why e-mail isn't getting out. A single server machine could have several different server software packages running on it, thus providing many different servers to clients on the network.

 Spam
(or Spamming) An inappropriate attempt to use a mailing list, or USENET or other networked communications facility as if it was a broadcast medium (which it is not) by sending the same message to a large number of people who didn't ask for it. The term probably comes from a famous Monty Python skit which featured the word spam repeated over and over. The term may also have come from someone's low opinion of the food product with the same name, which is generally perceived as a generic content-free waste of resources. (Spam is a registered trademark of Hormel Corporation, for its processed meat product.)E.g. Mary spammed 50 USENET groups by posting the same message to each.

Subdomains cost more, but search engines are more apt to index them.
