You're making a logical mistake, but basically I'd agree with you.First
of all, when you open a book (website) in your browser, you will see a
part, namely the first page - the cover - (webpage). You land on the
first webpage of the website, but only because you're browser can show
only one of the entire collection of webpages that is hidden behind the
website. Technically, there are also browsers that first show you a
sitemap of a website.But that's just what normal users don't use.

Overall, I would join Bert too: To finally meet for a single taggin. And
there I see for the normal address where I can reach an Internet
presence (whether as a single page or a huge website): webaddressURL &
website correspond to deprecaten and contact: website (for me then even
prefer contact: webadress) as a pure address for contact forms .....
