Is counter-argument the same as rebuttal?

There is no definition for counter-argument in this website, but it is mentioned in the definition of refutation. There is a definition for rebuttal, so I was wondering if rebuttal is another word for counter-argument.

No, both are different. Refutation means only rejection, while counter-argument means to present an argument that is against it. It is not just rejection. It is an opposing point of view.
