<div id="myDiv">Welcome</div>

Welcome

$("#myDiv").append(" to YogiHosting")

It will become:

<div id="myDiv">Welcome to YogiHosting.</div>
Adding 3 Contents with jQuery Append
Welcome

$("#myDiv").append(" to YogiHosting."," Are you enjoying", " coding?")

It will become:

<div id="myDiv">Welcome to YogiHosting. Are you enjoying coding?</div>

jQuery Append to DOM

Using jQuery Append method, an element in the DOM can be shifted from one location to another.

Consider the following HTML:

<h4>USA</h4>
<div class="fullName">
    <p>United</p>
    <p>States</p>
    <p>America</p>
</div>

I can move the h4 element inside of div having class as fullName:

$(".fullName").append($("h4")); 

This will make the HTML as:

<div class="fullName">
    <p>United</p>
    <p>States</p>
    <p>America</p>
    <h4>USA</h4>
</div>

jQuery Append Text

You can also append any text using the jQuery Append method. Let us append a text to the HTML paragraph:

<p>The President of United States is: </p>
$("p").append("Donald Trump");

The above paragraph will become:

<p>The President of United States is:  Donald Trump</p>
