JSP is a file extension for Java Server Pages file format.  A JSP is an HTML page containing a reference to Java servlets, or,  java server side applets.  

JSP files help to deliver server side customized content on a webpage through servlets. JSP files keep the Java code secret because it runs server side.

I clicked a link to a webpage with the .jsp tdl rather than .com, etc. Is this a genuine link?

These are server generated HTML files on the internet which are written using Java code. For more information refer to http://www.file-extension.com/files/JSP/

The links at the bottom of this article are worthless as JSP examples as they do not link to actual content just some bogus search that doesn't actually have anything useful.
