If I’m being honest, up until a few minutes ago I was still thinking, “It’s all the same.” But there are indeed differences. I would like to share my new insights of these differences with you today.
#Webpage vs. #Website
They are often used interchangeably. But that is wrong. A webpage is a single page on the World Wide Web that can be accessed via a URL. It can also be referred to as a webpage, internet page or HTMLpage. It is a distinct subpage of a website. Website, on the other hand, refers to the entire InternetPresence, also called WebPresence, i.e. all pages that can be accessed with one address on the web.
#homepage vs. website
You have certainly received/ read the call “Visit our homepage!”. In most cases, this means the website. But a homepage is not the same as a website. Homepage simply means the home page of a website. Homepage is a website, but a website is not necessarily a homepage. Because there is only one home page per site, however, there can be many web pages belonging to one website.
- Website is the entire web presence
- Webpage is a single/specific page of a web presence
- Homepage is the start page of a website
Learned something new again and from today we’ll do it right. 🙂
