A single is a type of base hit by a batter where only first base is reached safely. The batter-runner may be able to advance past first base, on a fielding error for example, however they will still be scored as only having hit a single.

If a ball is hit and does not leave the infield, and the batter is safe at first, this is usually referred to as an infield single or infield hit, unless the batter intentionally bunted the ball.
