called a WEBSITE
Provided the web pages are accessible to the public and share the same domain
name. Web pages can be one or more depending upon the requirement or nature of the
same. Each web page carries its own purpose and despite being individual, still
connects to the content of the website.
There are endless variety of websites as we all know, from
educational websites, e-commerce, social media, public forums to what not. No
matter the content of pages, as long as the domain name is same any web page
can be connected and called a website.

reached by using a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). For eg., https://www.webecommedia.com/index.php

necessary for a web page.
To reach any website, a browser of course is required (for

browser is selected, the desired website can be reached by entering the URL in
the address bar. And if the URL of the website is not known, different websites
can be searched on the search engine with their key words and can be accessed
