A website is a collection of different Webpages, Webpage contains at anything like text, graphics, videos etc, combined together to provide some kind of useful information. All the data bounded together by code, which can range from simple markup like Html to less Simple scripting languages like PHP, Perl or Asp. To find out about different types of websites, we will have to think how they are different from each other. The difference can be based on the purpose on the website services or the technology/method by which it was implemented or made.
Informational / Formal:
Informational websites work exactly as their name implies- they are an information destination for any users looking to learn more about a particular topic. Informational websites are often incorporated within other sites, like an e-commerce site, so that businesses can inform as well as sell to prospects. Having an informational website is a great way to build consumer trust in your brand.
A catalogue/brochure site is not used to speak about a topic generally, but rather, explains more about your products, delivering item specifications as well as pricing. This type of site will showcase some of the items you sell in store. You don’t have to sell your products online to have a catalogue site. In fact, this type of site is ideal for brick-and-mortar businesses, because it allows users to browse part of your selection before they make the trip inside. For example: If a prospect is looking for dark wood flooring, and you have a selection of wood flooring on your website, they are much more likely to check out you’re in store selection upon seeing your online catalogue. They will also be able to read more about the different types of flooring, having an even better idea of what they are looking for, and what they are avoiding, when they come in to purchase- allowing them to make more informed decisions, all thanks to your online catalogue.
An e-commerce site is built for businesses who sell their goods and services from their online store. You can have an ecommerce site, while still having an informational and brochure site. The difference? An ecommerce site has shopping cart software that allows users to add items to purchase directly from the site, enter their payment information, and have those good sent directly to them, all from the internet. You don’t need to have physical goods to have an ecommerce site; you can sell services there as well.
A blog, whose name was derived from a combination of the words ‘web’ and ‘log’, is basically an online journal or editorial. Blog authors, called bloggers, update their blog monthly, weekly, daily, or multiple times per day. Although many individual users have blogs, businesses and independent professionals utilize blogs as well. These users typically blog about their industry, covering these topics as a whole, rather than simply writing about the specific product they offer and why you should purchase them. Business blogs include content about relevant current events, industry tips and best practices, as well as general information about their industry.
