What Is A Website

A website, web site or simply site, is a collection of related website pages or web pages containing images, videos or other digital material. A website is hosted on at least one web server and although usually accessible via the Internet can also be available on private local networks through an Internet address known as a Uniform Resource Locator or URL. All publicly accessible websites collectively constitute the World Wide Web.

A webpage is a document, typically written in plain text but with formatting instructions of Hypertext Markup Language or HTML.

Web pages are accessed and transported with the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which may optionally employ encryption (HTTP Secure, HTTPS) to provide security and privacy for the user of the webpage content. The user’s web browser, translates the HTML and renders the page content accordingly.
