Personal web pages are World Wide Web web pages created by an individual to contain content of a personal nature rather than on behalf of a company, organization or institution. Personal web pages are often used solely for informative or entertainment purposes. Also often used interchangeably with the term “personal web page” are the terms; “personal web site”, “personal home page”, or most commonly just “home page”. These terms do not usually refer to just a single “page” or HTML file, but to a collection of pages and related files under a common URL or Web address. In strictly technical terms, a site’s actual home page (index page) often only contains sparse content with some interesting or catchy introductory material and serves mostly as a pointer or table of contents to the content-rich pages inside, such as résumés, family, hobbies, family genealogy, a blog, opinions, online journals and diaries or other writing, work, sound clips, movies, photos, or other interests.Many personal pages only include information of interest to friends and family of the author.

Motivations
Many people maintain personal web pages as a medium to express opinions or creative endeavors that otherwise would not have an outlet. They also provide a link from the world to the individual along the lines of a telephone book listing.
For those not well-versed in HTML and other Web technologies, personal accounts with social networking services may be faster to set up for creating a simple personal Web presence (due in part to the communal nature of social networks), provided that the page’s author does not object to the network’s online advertising and in some cases exclusion of readers who do not wish to open an account. Institutions such as universities often provide home page facilities to their members which are both advertisement-free and world-readable without registration, although the content might be subject to institutional rules.
A personal web page can be used for self promotion, to provide quick access to information, or just as something “cool”. They can be used to get in touch with strangers, and to create and define one’s own identity online, lest others do it. It can offer context for various online activities, building a mosaic out of what would otherwise be baffling fragments. It can be used to correct the record on something, or clear up potential confusion between you and someone with the same name.
Official celebrity sites
Many celebrities have websites. Were their owners not famous, some might think due to their tone and personal ambiance that these sites were personal web pages. However, the celebrity is the product being sold, and the website is typically professionally authored and maintained at professional costs. The celebrity status of the subject and the existence of separate fan-created sites (over which the celebrity in question has no direct control) leads a personal site authorized by the celebrity and maintained by an individual or company directly associated with the celebrity to be labeled an “official website”. This designation is often a seal of approval and an assurance to the public that the information provided on the site (including press releases, tour dates, and promotional materials) has been authored or approved by the celebrity in question. Some celebrities involved in criminal and civil trials, such as late pop star Michael Jackson and media mogul Martha Stewart, as well as celebrity chef Paula Deen establish official websites to issue statements to the press and to respond to statements and press releases issued by the prosecuting officials.
Most celebrity sites are created and maintained by marketing and web professionals employed by the celebrity or the celebrity’s publicist; however, some celebrities, such as film director Roger Avary, actor Wil Wheaton, and video game developer John Romero, maintain their own official sites without professional help, although many of them still use third-party templates and blogging software.
Sites of academics

Academic professionals (especially at the college and university level) are often given space for creating and storing personal web documents, including personal web pages, on the sites of their employers. This goes back to the dawn of the World Wide Web and its original purpose of quickly and easily sharing research papers.
