Q. What's the difference between a website and a webpage?


webpage is hosted on a website. A website is a collection of webpages. A library analogy would be that you can think of a website as a book, and webpages are all the pages that comprise that book.

When citing, you may want to use the webpage address if you're using information only from that page that you may not need to find on others. For instance, if you wanted to share information about the Strayer Writing Standards, you may link to that page only (https://library.strayer.edu/sws) instead of the library website in general (http://library.strayer.edu/).
