    Cool intranet/internet website

    Hello!

    I'm working on two different websites: the "intranet website" and the "internet website" of my company.

    Are the titles "intranet website" and "internet website" correct, please?

    Thank you
    Will

    It looks like it.

    They are both explained in Wikipedia, among other sources.

    I normally hear people just say intranet, though. How about the company website and the company intranet?

    Thank you.

    Could we also say "the company's website" and the "company's intranet"?

    Thank you

    You could, but the other way is more common. Company website. Company car. Company picnic. Company credit card.

    Cool Re: intranet/internet website

    Me again, sorry!

    I was thinking: when we say "company intranet", we mean "the internal network of the company", don't we?

    In fact, I'm not working on the intranet itself but on the website of the intranet.

    Then, what would be the right term, in your opinion?


    Thanks a lot for your help! I'm lost!

    If you're outside the company coding, designing, etc, the website, you could say that you're working on company X's intranet. To distinguish the presentational side of the intranet from the internal workings, I would use front end.

    If you're worried about any ambiguity, then why not change the verb?
