   n.
  
      1. One's personal billboard on the World Wide Web. The term ?home page? is
      perhaps a bit misleading because home directories and physical homes in RL
       are private, but home pages are designed to be very public.
  
      2. By extension, a WWW repository for information and links related to a
      project or organization. Compare home box.

  home page
  
      1. The top-level entry point web page
     relating to an individual or institution, or possibly a
     subject area.  This often has a URL consisting of just a
     hostname, e.g. http://ncsa.uiuc.edu/.  All other pages
     on a website are usually accessible by following links
     from the home page.
  
     2. The web page a user's web browser is configured to load
     each time it is started.  This will typically default to the
     home page (sense 1) of the organisation that produced or
     distributed the browser.
