Title

Website or Web site

 

Scope Note

Web site is “a set of interconnected web pages, usually including a homepage, generally located on the same server, and prepared and maintained as a collection of information by a person, group, or organization.” (Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/ )

A website, or Web site, is not the same thing as a Web page. Though the two terms are often used interchangeably, they should not be. So what's the difference? To put it simply, a Web site is a collection of Web pages. For example, Amazon.com is a Web site, but there are millions of Web pages that make up the site. Knowing the difference between these two terms can save you a lot of embarrassment. (Source: https://techterms.com/definition/website)

Web sites design is “the creative process of building a web site that covers information design and architecture (the organization of content within a web site, and how a user finds and accesses that information) including visual design.” (Source: Adobe seminars: web page design. TK5105.888 L66 1997)
