Fontend vs Backend of a Website

What is the difference between the frontend and the backend of a website?

The frontend focusses creating user interfaces through which the website interacts with visitors.

The backend code interacts with the server and focusses on delivering data and content for viewers to see on the frontend. Naturally working on the backend of a website is more complex. All the functions should be tiptop behind the scenes for the frontend to be operational and secure.

Both front and backend of a website working well together can be referred to as a full stack development.
