Also called a minisite, a microsite is a separate page of a Web site that has a separate URL than its home page and is used to provide information about and/or promote something that is related to the home page. For example, a museum's Web site may have a link to a microsite with information about a special exhibition the museum is running, or a computer manufacturer may create a microsite to give the user information about a new product design. Microsites often are temporary Web sites that are removed from Web servers once the promotion is over or the information is no longer relevant.
