The top-most part of your webpage.

In the exact opposite to Footers, the header sits right at the top of your website. It usually contains your site’s logo, navigation, and maybe some contact details or social media links.

Design trends for headers can change each year, but many are kept simple and clean, making sure not to take up too much room on the site or be confusing for visitors to use.

The information displayed in your header is often consistent across your entire site. It’s also an HTML5 tag for semantic markup.

The header also usually uses a specific template file, similar to the footer, in WordPress. You might also have some widgets in here, making it easy to change around and customize.

To conclude...

The header sits right at the top of your website and usually contains navigation, logos or maybe some helpful links to contact details or social media.
