Previously I had discussed web server and Web Hosting, I hope you have chosen the right hosting provider. Today let’s look at the Websites and their Purpose.
As I discussed earlier websites where you all know it is basically a collection of Different web pages which includes videos, Images, Content etc.
which you can remember through domain name/address.
Let say Amazon.com, flipkart.com or Microsoft.com
Where you can access these websites on your web browsers like Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer.
Every website has Specific goals and their target users.
Without knowing the target users, you can’t consider the developing the websites.
Before building the website, you need to have an answer to the specific questions, like
who’s gonna used the website?
Why he/she will access the website? What kind of solutions this website is going to provide?
Or what is something unique in this website where you will get enough visitors?
So, let’s have a look on types of websites one by one.
Different Websites and their purpose
I hope you have gone through many other contents on the search results with different results.
There is only two kind of websites and they are Static and Dynamic website.
Basically, static Website is those websites which have single page have fixed/stagnant content usually written in HTML Code.
A static website is that website where you as a user doesn’t have access to the changes. Here every page of the website has written in code separately as like you see on the web.
Whenever you think of doing any changes, you have to do it manually and require the coding knowledge.
Some of the Examples of Static websites design
Content Representation /Advertisement Website
A website which is meant to display only the Ads where the major goal of the website is to display the content.
These kinds of websites don’t work in the current scenario.
As it is the other way when you are showing the content as an advertisement, it should be interactive.
Personal Website which is not meant for any interaction.
It Could be Personal Website display the personal information and not meant for interaction.
Dynamic Website is those which is controlled by an application server processed by the server-side script.
The website where the audience has access to interact with the help of guest posts, email, any inquiry form, and Leave-a-reply facility.
There are many examples of Dynamic Website.
