Every website you encounter on the internet is, technically speaking, simply a set of resources.

A resource is anything that a user finds valuable. It's a reason for the user to visit the website or application. Resources are always nouns.

Think of Amazon.com. What resources can we identify?

  • Products
  • Orders
  • Reviews
  • Deals
  • Departments
  • Shipments
  • Users
  • Credit Cards
  • Wish Lists

...just to name a few.
