About Us

Webopedia is a free online dictionary for words, phrases and abbreviations that are related to computer and Internet technology.

Webopedia provides easy-to-understand definitions in plain language, avoiding the use of heavy jargon when possible so that the site is accessible to users with a wide range of computer knowledge.

Full-time experienced editors gather information from standards bodies, leading technology companies, universities, professional online technical publications, white papers and professionals working in the field. The sources used are often listed in the links section below the definition if the sources can provide more information than was included in the definition. Every definition is verified among multiple sources; definitions are never based on just one source.

The definitions on Webopedia evolve and change as technologies change, so the definitions are frequently updated to reflect trends in the field. New terms are added on a daily basis, and many of the new terms come from suggestions from the site's users.

In addition to a definition of the term or phrase, Webopedia also provides links to sources of further information on the topic where applicable.

Webopedia is part of the network of Web sites owned and managed by Jupitermedia Corporation.
