Term: home page

The term home page has two distinct and only semi-related meanings.

1) The page of a web site that is displayed when no specific page is specified. For example, the page that you see when you visit http://askleo.comis its home page. This is typically referred to as the website’s home page.

2) The page that is displayed by default when you start a web browser without specifying a specific page to be displayed. For example, when you run Internet Explorer (perhaps by just clicking on its icon) it typically displays a default page fetched from the internet. This is referred to as “your” home page, and every web browser allows you to configure that default page to be whatever you wish.
