Robot controlled by website


I am trying to send commands to the Arduino from a website. The Arduino has the CC3000 wifi breakout module to communicate. On my website, I am trying send a string or an integer to the arduino through the CC3000 module. How exactly is this done? I tried looking at the CC3000 library to start, but there is no send() or receive() that I could use to accomplish this.

If anyone could provide any pointers or useful code to do this, I would appreciate it.

Thank you
