Question: What's the difference between a web page and a website?


A web page is a single page on the Internet, with a single address called a URL. Some URLs are easy to remember and some are not. You can save a "favorite" or "bookmark" of any web page, in your web browser, so you can click to go to the web page without having to type the address.

Examples of web pages and their URLs:

A website or web site is a collection of related web pages, usually but not always with similar addresses. The address of a website is the address of its home page.

Examples of websites and their URLs:

A website can be a portion of a larger website. Each Palms teacher has a website that is part of the Palms Middle School website.

Examples of websites within websites:

Palms Home Page           Teachers Page           Staff Site
