Volcanic eruptions
volcanic eruption - nyiragongo
A '''home page''' (also written as '''homepage''') is the main [[web page]] of a [[website]].
The term can also refer to one or more pages always shown in a [[web browser]] when the [[application software|application]] starts up. In this case, it is also known as the '''start page'''.
==Website home page==
nyiragongo is a steep sided active volcano. It is located in the democratic republic of Congo.
A home page is generally the main [[web page]] a visitor navigating to a [[website]] from a [[web search engine|search engine]] will see, and it may also serve as a [[landing page]] to attract visitors.<ref>{{Cite web|url=http://www.smartinsights.com/conversion-optimisation/landing-page-optimisation/home-page-as-landing-page/|title=Home Page as Landing Page examples - Smart Insights Digital Marketing Advice|date=2014-05-23|language=en-US|access-date=2016-07-01}}</ref><ref name=wdi76>{{cite book |last=Campbell |first=Jennifer |title=Web Design: Introductory |url=https://books.google.com/books?id=5IDAAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA76 |year=2014 |publisher=Cengage Learning |isbn=978-1-305-17627-0 |page=76}}</ref> The home page is used to facilitate navigation to other pages on the site by providing links to prioritized and recent articles and pages, and possibly a search box.<ref name=nn>{{cite web |url=http://www.nngroup.com/articles/top-ten-guidelines-for-homepage-usability/ |title=Top 10 Guidelines for Homepage Usability |author=Jakob Nielsen |publisher=nngroup.com |date=12 May 2002 |accessdate=4 September 2014}}</ref> For example, a news website may present headlines and first paragraphs of top stories, with links to full articles.<ref>{{cite book |last=Kalbach |first=James |title=Designing Web Navigation |url=https://books.google.com/books?id=LC0cG-vFJbcC&pg=PA106 |year=2007 |publisher=O'Reilly Media |isbn=978-0-596-55378-4 |page=106}}</ref> Meanwhile, other websites use the home page to attract users to create an account. Once they are logged in, the home page may be redirected to their profile page. This may in turn be referred to as the "personal home page".<ref>{{Cite book|url=https://books.google.com/books?id=YUk7swNT3rQC|title=Building Social Web Applications|last=Bell|first=Gavin|date=2009-09-17|publisher="O'Reilly Media, Inc."|isbn=9781449379414|language=en}}</ref>
This is an area of many faults where the plates are being stretched as they move away from each other.
A website may have multiple home pages. [[Wikipedia]], for example, has a home page at wikipedia.org, as well as language-specific home pages, such as en.wikipedia.org and de.wikipedia.org. The [[Uniform Resource Locator]] (URL) of a home page is most often the base-level [[domain name]], such as <nowiki>https://example.com</nowiki>.
In the past, common home page [[filename]]s were index.html or default.html.<ref name=url>{{cite book |last=Boyce |first=Jim |title=Windows 7 Bible |url=https://books.google.com/books?id=waCQXe7tuAoC&pg=PA318 |year=2011 |publisher=John Wiley & Sons |isbn=978-1-118-08127-3 |page=318}}</ref> Another convention was that if a home page was not created for a website, [[web server]]s would default to display a list of files located in the website's root directory.<ref name=dir>{{cite web |url=https://support.tigertech.net/directory-index |title=How do I enable directory listings for a folder on my Web site? |publisher=tigertech.net |accessdate=4 September 2014}}</ref> These conventions are largely obsolete on the modern Web.{{Citation needed|date=March 2020}}
''causes of the eruption ''
==Browser home page==
The eruption happened on January 17th 2002. The volcano has a lava lake in its crater. There was little warning as the lava reached the city of Goma. It was difficult to put emergency responses in place.
When a [[web browser]] is launched, it may automatically open at least one [[web page]], sometimes referred to as a "start page." Start pages can be a [[website]] or a special browser page, such as thumbnails of frequently visited websites. Moreover, there is a niche market of websites intended to be used solely as start pages.<ref>{{cite news |url=https://www.theguardian.com/technology/askjack/2013/nov/07/igoogle-alternatives |title=iGoogle: what are the best alternatives? |first=Jack|last=Schofield|authorlink=Jack Schofield (journalist)|date=7 November 2013 |accessdate=4 September 2014 |work=The Guardian}}</ref>
