What is a website?

When you’re surfing the Internet, you are probably looking for information on websites. A website is a collection of interlinked pages on the internet grouped together under a unique name or online address. These pages, known as web pages, contain information or services by a business or organization.  The information may be in different formats like text, images, videos, audio, and animation and the services may be like buying or selling products, downloading digital products, etc. Notable examples are wikipedia.org, google.com, and amazon.com.

Websites are typically dedicated to a particular topic or purpose, such as news, education, commerce, entertainment, or social networking. Hyperlinking between web pages guides the navigation of the site, which often starts with a home page.

Users can access websites on a range of devices, including desktops, laptops, TVs, tablets, and smartphones. The app used on these devices is called a web browser.

According to the last number, an unbelievable number of over 2 billion websites are known to be online.

Here’re just a few of the top websites according to popularity among users.
