A Web page also known as Electronic Page is a part of the World Wide Web. It is just like a page in a book. The basic unit of every Web site or document on the web is a web page containing the information.

A Web page can contain an article, or a single paragraph, photographs, and it is usually a combination of text and graphics.

Website Static And Dynamic Areas:

A static web page often called a flat page or stationary page is a web page that is delivered to the user exactly as stored. A static web page displays the same information for all users, such versions are available and the server is configured to do so. Such web pages are suitable for the contents that never or rarely need to be updated.

A dynamic web page is a web page which needs to be refreshed every time whenever it opens in any of the web browsers to display the updated content of the site.

What makes a web page works?

The server receives the request for a page sent by your browser.

The browser connects to the server through an IP Address: the IP address is obtained by translating the domain name.

In return, the server sends back the requested page.

Difference Between Webpage And Website:

A web page is one single page of information, while a website is made up of a number of different web pages connected by links known as Hyperlinks.

Web Browser:

A browser is a software that lets you view web pages, graphics, and the online content. Browser software is specifically designed to convert HTML and XML into a readable document.

The most popular web browsers are Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera and UC Browser.
