Website would be a more accurate translation

March 30, 2014


um..... what's the difference between site and website?

July 29, 2016


When speaking about the internet : no difference. When speaking in general, website can only mean a website, but a site can sometimes mean a place or a touristic area

Why is Internet written with a Capital letter?

July 17, 2016


because Internet is a noun. and you know, nouns in German always written with a capital letter

August 21, 2017


As for English, it's because Internet is a name of a particular network (like Earth is a name of a particular planet).

The only indefinite article offered was 'a', but the English translation should be 'He wants AN internet page'.

It seems a verb is is missing at the like "haben" or "bekommen". Is this an often expression?

January 4, 2015


"Wollen" means "to want". There is no need for another verb in this case.

Technically, there is no such thing as Internet page. But people use the term all the time so why not.

July 15, 2016


True. People often get the Internet and the Web confused. In French, I hear "site internet" instead of "site web" a lot

September 15, 2017


Why not? The Web is a part of the Internet, so web pages are Internet pages as well.

October 8, 2017


True, but not the reverse.

One could have an "Internet Site" that is NOT web-based. Before about 1995 or so, all Internet sites were non-web.

Thus, »Er will eine Internetseite, aber keine Webseite.«

Alternatively, one could assume that "Page" implies HTTP. But I don't.
