Webpages

Remember books? Each time you turned a page, you ingested new material from that page. Each page was its own entity.

So a book page is like a webpage: a page that contains information. More directly, a webpage is a single document that can be viewed online.

Web Pages contain images, texts, charts data and what not.

These are also often called just “pages.”

Website

Using the similar book analogy, while a webpage is a page from a book, a website is the book itself.

It is a collection of the pages that share a common thread or in simple words, all webpages of a website come together for a website.

Website is a set of related web pages located under a single domain name.

Often called   a “web site” or simply  a “site.”
