Many people ask the difference between a website and a web application. A website is a running of a set of web pages viewed with a browser. The great part of them are static set of pages that gives viewers information. It does not allow viewers to communicate directly like a software application. A website can be compared to an art gallery where show you an artwork and share lot of information about them with you.
Web applications are interactive and you can follow your favorite process with their workflow like Amazon. User interaction is an integral part of web applications. They look like an integrated event where it is necessary for audiences to engage to value added their fact.
What’s the Difference between Websites and Web Applications?
Web applications differ from web sites as they have wide range of interactive features/functionalities and dynamic content. The content delivered via thin client or server driven architecture vary in size, structure and visual design. To accommodate such rich content care should be taken when designing user interface. Various methodologies exist to deliver the content to the users in an efficient manner.
Due the technical views, there are some discrete differences between websites and web applications. Do not forget that even here, you’ll find some antithetical opinions among experts. As a general fact, you can use the following definitions:
Websites are generally informational in essence. Remind about your blog or information based site. Its first target is to transfer
and illustrate information to the end user.
As a general principal, there is no online dialogue or interaction on the part of the visitor, unless possibly submitting an email address to receive a monthly newsletter or performing a search.
Web applications are usually based on process and responsible for some type of interaction with the clients (users). That performs a specific function by using a web browser as its client. So a web application is a computer program that utilizes web browsers and web technology to perform tasks over the Internet. A Web Application or Web App is Software that runs on a Web Server.
we are expert at all of three main web application types according to the roles performed by the server and the client browser.
- server-side HTML web application.
- JS generation widgets (AJAX)
- service-oriented single-page web apps (Web 2.0, HTML5 apps)

A web application or “web app” is a software program that runs on a server. Unlike traditional desktop applications, which are launched by your operating system, web apps must be accessed through a web browser.
Web apps have several advantages over desktop applications. Since they run inside web browsers, developers do not need to develop web apps for multiple platforms. We design Web applications for webmail, online retail sales, online actions, wikis and many other functions.
A Web service is a method of communication between two electronic devices over a network. Our software designers provide programs at any network address over the Web with the service always on for value computing.
We provide a Web service as a software program .it designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network
We provide both:
REST-compliant Web services:
In which the primary purpose of the service is to manipulate XML representations of Web resources using a uniform set of stateless operations.
Arbitrary Web services:
in which the service may expose an arbitrary set of operations.
Proper mapping web application development process is a key to success factor for a project of any size. Despite this fact that the development of the web-based app is pretty similar to the general desktop application development it has some differences that may impact the overall process and make it more complex in some aspects.
