Web Site

A web site is defined to be a set of interconnected web pages prepared for a specific purpose and maintained by a single person or well-defined group.  The web site will have a single web page – denoted as the “home page” – that will be directly associated with the web site’s URL.

Under this definition, almost any collection of web pages within the CSUN web environment can be deemed a web site.  Whether a group of pages is determined to be a web site should not be predicated solely upon CSUN’s administrative structure. For the purpose of this document, we recommend the following criteria for determining whether a group of pages is a web site:
