Hi!
A web site presents data in a way that is viewable by a browser. It (usually) allows for user interaction of some kind.
A web service supplies a number of services, typically accessed by other software components. A web service receives a request, possibly containing some input data, performs some processing and, optionally, returns a result.
There are similarities between a web site and a RESTful web service, for example in that they use the same set of verbs (GET, PUT, POST etc) and the concept of these verbs operating on resources addressed using URLs.
Hope this makes things more clear!

4.Please let me know how web services are accessed

1. A web site may use a web service. A company may provide a web page and a web service, that does not necessarily mean they are related.
2. Web sites are not registered in UDDI registries.
3. Search web services where?
Generally speaking, a web service is not available unless the person/comapny who owns the web service makes it available.
4. Using web service clients.
The kind of client used depend on the kind of web service you want to access. For instance, SOAP web service clients cannot access RESTful web services and vice versa.
Best wishes!
