subweb

A term coined by Microsoft that is used in its Web page design software, Microsoft FrontPage. When you create a FrontPage Web, you may want to restrict access to certain portions of that Web. To do this, you create what is called a subweb within the Web, and then restrict access to that subweb.

The term subweb is often mistaken for being a directory or structure of the World Wide Web. Because the World Wide Web refers to the Web as being one or all, there cannot be a subweb on the World Wide Web.
