Web Site vs. Web Application

Although the terms “website” and “web application” are often used interchangeably, there are some significant differences between them.

A website usually refers to the front-end interface through which the public interacts with your business online. xformix.com is an example of what one would generally term a “website”. Most computer professionals know the difference between a host based terminal or client server application and a web site, so it is sometimes easier to understand if I say that a web application is equivalent to a client server application with a web interface. On the back end are programs with logic that are manipulating application data. A web site does not have an equivalent relationship with its host computer.

Web Applications

A web application, or Rich Internet Application (RIA), usually includes a website component but features additional advanced functionality to replace or enhance existing business processes. The interface design objective behind a web application is to simulate the intuitive, immediate interaction a user experiences with a desktop application.

Web applications frequently integrate with existing business IT infrastructure such as accounting packages, stock management systems, ERP, etc. When partnered with mobile services, web applications add significant business value both in direct revenue possibilities as well as through business process optimization.

Website Development

Websites are typically informational in nature with a limited amount of advanced functionality. Simple websites consist primarily of static content where the data displayed is the same for every visitor and content changes are infrequent. More advanced websites may sport features such as eCommerce, content management and interactive content.
