  • B2B – Business to Business
  • B2C – Business to Consumer
  • BT – Bluetooth (Growing in popularity so do not mistake for British Telecom)
  • CMS – Content Management System
  • CRM – Customer Relationship Management
  • DPI – Dots Per Inch (Usually applied to screen or print resolution)
  • FTP – File Transfer Protocol
  • HTML – Hypertext Markup Language
  • HTTP – Hypertext Transfer Protocol

  • IP – Internet Protocol
  • LAN – Local Area Network
  • WAN – Wide Area Network
