Examples of someof these companies are: - BT - Virgin - Talk Talk - Sky Web page conventions: Websites are made out of a lot of pages, all using the same URL.

I havelearnt many things such as the differentconventions that are used when creating a website such as the colour schemes and the protocols that are taken on board to create a successfulwebsite. I can apply this knowledgeto my superhero website due to the fact that I know what will be the mostappropriate look using the colour scheme and also will have an idea on how to create a successfulwebsitedue to all the conventions.
