masthead

On the Internet, a masthead is a graphic image or text title at the top of a Web page that identifies the Web site and, sometimes, the particular section of the site. In addition to the name of the Web site, a masthead could include other elements such as images, text, or navigational links. The Web site masthead was named after a similar feature of newspapers and magazines, which in turn got its name from the top of a mast on a ship.
