A webmaster is someone who creates and manages the content and organization of a website, manages the computer server and the technical programming aspects of a website, or does both.

Companies that advertise a webmaster vary in their use of the term. In a small business, a webmaster usually takes care of all the technology related to the website. In a large company, a webmaster is usually someone with knowledge and experience with HTML or a more technical person with programming skills. The technical webmaster manages the server (for example, managing the creation and authorization associated with file systems) and writes the mining language programs or scripts and practical reports required by the website.

In a very large company, there may be a team of webmasters made up of people at the top of the company who define the design and general policies of the company site, organize the necessary technical resources (working with the people who provide the company with its network) and oversee the design of the company’s website (which is often done by an outside firm). At the division and product level, there may be additional webmasters who organize and develop site content and programming for their division or product. Additionally, there will likely be an interrelated effort to create site design, organization, and content for the corporate intranet.

In a small business, the webmaster may be responsible for creating the site and putting it on a separate company’s server or creating one within the company. The design and creation of the site may initially be carried out by an external design company who hands over the finished site to the company’s internal webmaster to maintain and perhaps add content within the established design.

And if you are a business that specializes in website building, you can refer to the General Producer or Art Director as the webmaster of a site.
