What is a Web Site?

A Web site, also referred to as a Site, is a collection of related web pages that are typically identified by a common domain name. A website will, in most cases, be accessible via the Internet.

Websites are typically dedicated to a particular topic or purpose; they have many functions and can be used in various ways, such as a personal website, a commercial website for a company, a government website or a non-profit organization website.

Web pages, which are the foundations of websites, are documents, typically composed in plain text.
Since Site suggests a geographic location, a Web Site can be confused with a Web Server. A server is a computer which holds the files for one or more sites. A very large Web site may be spread over a number of servers in different geographic locations.
