If you Google it ( Search in Google ), you will find thousands of descriptions from many authors who already described it in many ways. But it is quite hard to grasp the story when it comes to a nontechnical guy.
Today I am trying to simplify the same with examples so that you can understand the terms with or without having prior technical knowledge. As per the technical aspect, all these words are co-related and point out the same thing with a various aspect of its own.
Before getting into the topic let’s understand the basics of Website, as of all task playing over the internet world are connected with websites. So what the word Website exactly mean?
A website is a collection of web page or pages through which a particular information is served by the owner of the site. All sites you find on the internet are built to provide specific services for their users. But they are all under the roof of website family. Let me show you some examples which erase all doubt & let you a better understanding simply.
- google.Com: A website and works as a search engine.
- yahoo.Com: A site and also works as a search engine.
- amazone.com: A website and works as a shopping portal.
- gmail.Com: A website and works as a mail server.

WEB PAGE: When we access a website it shows the web page. The Web page is a document or text which is written in HTML (HyperText Markup Language) or any server-side scripting language such as PHP, ASP, etc. To read or access an HTML page we need a web browser, and for a scripting language, require a server to run them.

Where HTTP – Hyper Text Type protocol, WWW – World Wide Web, GOOGLE.COM – Domain Name. When a domain registers with a security certificate the protocol, we access the domain with an HTTPS.
DOMAIN NAME: A domain name is a distinct identity of your web presence. A domain name needs to purchase from a domain name service (DNS) provider. Some popular DNS providers are Godaddy, 1and1, Bigrock, Namecheap, ENOM, etc.
