Homepage, website, web page – isn’t it the same?!

Again and again I hear or read sentences like “I need a new homepage” or “Have a look at my homepage”. Unfortunately, again and again from people in the online industry. For many who know the difference, this makes their hair stand on end 😀.
But it’s actually quite simple. Here is a short and concise explanation of the terms homepage vs. web page vs. website:

Homepage

This is the home page of your website. It’s usually the first page you arrive at when you enter the domain.


Web page

Strictly speaking, web page means only a single page of the web presence. For example a blog post or contact page.


Website

The term website refers to the complete web presence. This means the homepage as well as all subpages of the website.
