3 basic types of websites
Nowadays there’s a website for anything you can think of, we will not be getting into the nitty gritty part of this discussion which involves a vast categorization either content wise or backend wise, so as the title suggests we will be talking about some basic types of websites.
A simple and broad categorization of websites can be made as follows:
Static websites are defined by the nature of the content they provides, the information presented on such a website is, as the definition of it suggests, static, meaning it’s fixed and remains feasible/beneficial for any visitor. Some practical examples of static websites are: presentation websites, portfolios (business or artistic), event websites etc.
Dynamic websites, you most probably figured this one out, are also defined by the nature of their content. This type presents information based upon a “new” factor, meaning it will always try to deliver the most up-to-date information for its viewers. The keyword for this branch of websites is “article”, it being the corner stone upon which it’s build. An article can be anything from news to a tutorial, in fact, you’re on a dynamic website right now 🙂
We all know what they are, you can buy just about anything online these days, the most important aspect of this type of website is that it can make a business presence a lot stronger on the market. Shop websites can be easily setup, even for “the little boutique just around corner”.
Well, now that you’ve seen what types of sites there are, you probably already know which one suits you the best. Whether you choose a type of website that offers an immediate monetization or you choose to invest in your image on medium or long term, the advantages of having a website to represent you online are obvious. Getting a website has the same impact online as buying a house or an office in the real world.
