Let me explain how a website works.

A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. Hosting providers allocate space on a web server for a website to store its files. DNS is the Domain Name System, which is a hierarchical and decentralized naming system for computers, services, or other resources connected to the Internet or a private network.

How many of you rolled your eyes?  Now, let me rephrase the gibberish.

Hosting providers are like landlords. When you need space, you sign a contract with them. Depending on your budget, you may get an apartment, house, or mansion, which determines how many friends and furniture you can have in the space. Once you get a place, you register your address. DNS plays the role to connect you with the address so that your friends can find you.

It’s easier to comprehend the concept, isn’t it?  When you talk about something technical, you need to put it simply without using technical jargon.  Your “common languages” may not be so common to others.

The Up-Goer Five Text Editor is an online tool to encourage you to use only the 1,000 most used words. My above sample uses fifteen (15!!!) non-permitted words (hosting, providers, landlords, contract, depending, budget, mansion, determines, furniture, register, address, DNS, role, connect, address).

Try one of your stories. I’m sure that you’ll find it challenging as well as fun.
