The difference between a website and a webpage is that a website is a collection of webpages with information on a subject, and a webpage is a smaller part of a larger website usually containing more specific information. If a website were a book, then a webpage would be a chapter in that book. Whether you cite a site or a page for a paper or project depends on what information you used.
