From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  web page
  
      A block of data available on the World-Wide
     Web, identified by a URL.  In the simplest, most common
     case, a web page is a file written in HTML, stored on the
     server.  It may refer to images which appear as part of
     the page when it is displayed by a web browser.  It is also
     possible for the server to generate pages dynamically in
     response to a request, e.g. using a CGI script.
  
     A web page can be in any format that the browser or a helper
     application can display.  The format is transmitted as part
     of the headers of the response as a MIME type,
     e.g. "text/html", "image/gif".
  
     An HTML web page will typically refer to other web pages and
     Internet resources by including hypertext links.
  
     A website often has a home page (usually just the
     hostname, e.g. http://foldoc.org/).  It may also have
     individual home pages for each user with an account at the
     site.
