What are pages?

Alex Ho -

Introduction

Whenever you visit a website, the information you see will be displayed on a specific ‘page’. In this context, these are known as ‘webpages [or web page].

A webpage is a document that is viewed in an Internet browser such as Firefox or Chrome. These typically are accessed by entering a URL address for the website. Additionally, when you click a link provided by a search engine such as Google, you are accessing a web page. 

A webpage often will contain an assortment of text, graphics, and hyperlinks to other webpages and files. The purpose of webpages is to provide information to viewers, including pictures or videos to help illustrate important topics. But they may also be used as a method to sell products or services to viewers. Multiple web pages make up a website, such as for your practice.

These are very important as they contain not only the styling/layouts but also the contents of your site. Your website will have many pages, ranging from the hompage to service/sectors page to the contact us page.

The Internet consists of millions of web pages, with more being added every day!
