Website

Definition - What does Website mean?

A website is a collection of publicly accessible, interlinked Web pages that share a single domain name. Websites can be created and maintained by an individual, group, business or organization to serve a variety of purposes. Together, all publicly accessible websites constitute the World Wide Web.

A website is also known as a web presence.

Techopedia explains Website

Websites come in a nearly endless variety, including educational sites, news sites, porn sites, forums, social media sites, e-commerce sites, and so on. The pages within a website are usually a mix of text and other media. That said, there are no rules dictating the form of a website. A person could create a website of nothing but black and white photos of roses, or the word "cat" linked to another Web page with the word "mouse." However, many sites follow a standard pattern of a homepage that links off to other categories and content within the website. Originally, websites were categorized by their top-level domains. Some examples include: Government agency websites = .gov Educational institutions’ websites = .edu Nonprofit organizations’ websites = .org Commercial websites = .com nformation sites = .info Although these top-level domains extensions still exist, they say little about a website's actual content. In the modern day internet, the ".com" extension is by far the most popular domain, a long with many other country-specific extensions.
