What is the difference between a web site and a web application?
There are many my friends who use term â€˜websiteâ€™ and â€˜web applicationâ€™ interchangeable without knowing the differences between them. So letâ€™s discuss the differences between website and web application in brief.
Website is used to refer to a location that host several pages that are often on the same topic. The website is accessed with the use of URL(Uniform Resource Locator). On the other end, a web application term used identifying a program or application that run and used on separate computers.
A web application can exist in the internet or across the local network, intranet, VPN among other things. When a web application available on the internet, it is often hosted as a separate page on a website. A web application is more resource intensive compare to the website. Perhaps thatâ€™s why it is more difficult to create a web application in compare to website. Website has mostly static pages with low interactivity while web application is made up of lots of dynamic pages with highly interactivity.
