>>Website is often generalized to mean "any internet resource that directly relates to this object".  https and http aren't the only possible methods by a long shot.  University of Michigan definitely has some things that only has a gopher presence (gopher is their baby), so gopher:// would be the method part of the URL in that case, and trying to access it with http or https  will not  work.
