The web is created by engineers---also human ; therefore, the structure of the web is almost identical with this human world.
A web address is similar to any worldly address marking a
physical location on earth. Yet, there may be a building that refers to the web location, or may be not. And the number of the web address is infinite, as long as it is unique.

A website is a building.
A building could be a school, a mall, or a government building.

An e-mail is a mailbox.
A mailbox could be in a post office, or a UPS store.
And at an e-mail, the user's internet address after @ decides where the mail will be delivered .

myemail @ mycompany.com :
Mails will go to the mail center at mycompany.com.
myemail @aol.com :
Mails will go to the mail center at AOL.
myemail @gmail.com :
Mails will go to the mail center at Google.
In this logic, we don’t get mails delivered to our computer in our house. We actually go to Google, AOL, or Yahoo to check our mails, and then we reply, or delete them. We leave all mails in their care. This is the main reason why many of us don’t need a big computer now.
