A webpage or web page is a "page" of the World Wide Web, usually in HTML format, often with associated graphics files to provide illustration. It is displayed using a web browser.

A web page can be larger than fits on the screen. Except in special cases a page wider than fits on the screen, requiring horizontal scrolling, is impractical and therefore avoided, see page widening. A page higher than fits on the screen is more common and not problematic; it requires vertical scrolling to see all of it.

A collection of web pages stored in a single folder or within related subfolders of a web server are collectively known as a web site.

A difficulty in designing and testing web pages is that they should be suitable for many browsers and browser settings and different screen resolutions.
