A website is a collection of web pages that are typically static and provide information to users about a particular topic or organisation. Websites can range from simple, static pages to complex, dynamic sites that include multimedia content and interactive features. Examples of websites include news sites, blogs, and online stores.
On the other hand, a web application is a type of software that runs in a web browser or on a web server and provides a specific function or service to users. Web applications can be simple, like an online calculator, or complex, like a social media platform or a web-based email client. Unlike websites, web applications are usually interactive and require user input to perform their intended function.
The distinction between a website and a web application can sometimes be blurred, as some websites may contain elements of web applications, and some web applications may also include informational pages. However, in general, the main difference between the two is that websites provide information, while web applications provide functionality.
Web apps vary by structure: Monoliths, and microservices, with and without 3rd party integrations, each with its purpose and functionality.
