What is a Website?
A website, Web site or WWW site (often shortened
to just site) is a collection of Web pages, that is, HTML/XHTML
documents accessible generally via HTTP on the Internet;
all publicly accessible websites in existence comprise the
World Wide Web.
The pages of a website will be accessed from
a common root URL, the homepage, and usually reside on the
same physical server.
The URLs of the pages organize them into a
hierarchy, although the hyperlinks between them control
how the reader perceives the overall structure and how the
traffic flows between the different parts of the site. *
