Are a web page and a website the same?

web page vs website

In a simple way we can say that a web page is an electronic page

that “lives” or stays on a server.


A server can be a computer that makes resources available over a network, or a program that runs on that computer.




Web pages


Web pages emerged with the advent of the Internet, and it is precisely here that a long path of evolution begins, in the way they are schematized, how they are developed and how we interact with them.

They have allowed the dissemination of information allowing not only to read text, but also to watch videos, listen to audio, run applications and even interact with other people.




Nowadays it is common to talk about HTML (HyperText Markup Language), or markup language used to outline and create web pages.


With the evolution of this language, as well as the incorporation of style sheets (CSS) and Javascript (JS), web pages have evolved not only in their appearance but also in their functionalities.


We went from having static web pages, which only displayed information in a digital format such as a newspaper page,




to have pages that allowed images, audio and videos to be incorporated, making them more attractive and with more content.


Programs have also evolved over time.

that allow you to create applications and websites from the basic knowledge

and even without programming experience


Some of these programs or sites where we can create applications and websites with only basic knowledge are: WordPress, Weebly, Wix and Jimdo.


So, is a website the same as a web page?


In a strict sense, just as a page is not a book,

a web page is not a website.


A website could be defined as a collection of web pages that have a particular function and/or theme, which, due to its extension, can be divided into sub-themes.


There is where we integrate different areas of knowledge to make a website coherent and through navigation between pages, specific information and functionality can be displayed.


Websites “inherit” part of the classification of the pages and their classification is extended by functionality and scope, being able to mention some such as: blogs, institutional sites, interactive stores (online), search engines, etc.


In conclusion, we can have a single web page, without a website, but currently it does not make much sense.


If we intend to link related content from different pages of our own to a single one, it would be better to think of a slightly more robust website.


We help you analyze your website, its functionality for your business

and improvement options.
