网站

经由全球资讯网及特定网域名称下组织存取档案集合或相关资源。网站上典型的档案是HTML文件,以及相关的图档(GIF、JPEG等)、文本程式(以Perl、CGI、Java等写成),以及类似的资源。网站的档案通常藉由其他档案嵌入的超文字或超连结来存取。网站也可能仅由一个HTML档案组成,也可能由成百上千个相关档案构成。网站通常的起点或开启网页称为首页,一般作为内容或索引的列表,连接到网站的其他部分。网站的主机是一台或一台以上的网站伺服器,将档案利用HTTP协定传送到客户端电脑或其他伺服器。虽然网站的名称好像是指单一的实体位置,但是网站的档案和资源实际上可能分布在不同地理位置的几个伺服器。客户端请求的特定档案可在浏览器输入URL来指定或是选择超连结来存取。

Web site

Collection of files and related resources accessible through the World Wide Web and organized under a particular domain name. Typical files found at a Web site are HTML documents with their associated graphic image files (GIF, JPEG, etc.), scripted programs (in Perl, CGI, Java, etc.), and similar resources. The site's files are usually accessed through hypertext or hyperlinks embedded in other files. A Web site may consist of a single HTML file, or it may comprise hundreds or thousands of related files. A Web site's usual starting point or opening page, called a home page, usually functions as a table of contents or index, with links to other sections of the site. Web sites are hosted on one or more Web servers, which transfer files to client computers or other servers that request them using the HTTP protocol. Although the term "site" implies a single physical location, the files and resources of a Web site may actually be spread among several servers in different geographic locations. The particular file desired by a client is specified by a URL that is either typed into a browser or accessed by selecting a hyperlink.
