Etymology edit

From vefur (web) +‎ síða (page).

Pronunciation edit

Noun edit

vefsíða f (genitive singular vefsíðu, nominative plural vefsíður)

  1. website
  2. (now less common) web page

Usage notes edit

Vefsíða originally only referred to a web page, but due to influence from the English false friend website, the word acquired that meaning. The same development occurred in Danish where hjemmeside (literally home page) acquired the meaning of website.
