What Is A Homepage

The homepage has several meanings. Originally, the web page that your browser is set to use when it starts up. The more common meaning refers to the main web page for a business, organization, or person, or simply the main page out of a collection of web pages, e.g. 'Check out so-and-so's new Home Page.' Another sloppier use of the term refers to practically any web page as a 'homepage,' e.g. 'That website has 65 homepages and none of them are interesting.'

The main page that first loads is usually called index.html, index.php, or home.html and may be referred to as the home page.
