Types of Website

Website has become an identity for any organization. People all over the world can view your business website easily, learn about you, can know what you are offering. What kind of website to create depends on what type of business you are running. For example, do you need a website to sell product online or you have a physical store so you just need the publicity? Let’s have a look at what type of websites are need for what purpose.
Why do you need a website? Is it for just people to know about you or you need a place to share your images or videos with your close ones? Then you should create a basic website which can be referred as personal website. These websites are usually simple. Contains only few sections. Personal websites are usually one page.
May be you own a company? It’s a company that does marketing or provide consultancy or similar kind. Then you should go for a business website. Often business website also doesn’t contain many pages. May be an about us page along with homepage, contact, our services and so on. There are types in business. Hence there are types for business websites. If you have physical store then you can just create a website to display some of your products. If you don’t have a physical store then you should have an e-commerce website. The main difference is from an e-commerce site customers can purchase products directly. Hence an integration of payment system is necessary. On the other hand a business site might not need payment integration system as there might be no direct sell from website. The website is there just to inform people and to invite them to the store. As e-commerce site are for those companies who don’t have a physical store since they not only worry about showing their products but also have to confirm smooth payment system so that customers can purchase easily. Furthermore, a live chat option can be handy in e-commerce site. E-commerce sites are usually costly as these are considered to be the most important category among websites.
Are you a blogger? You need a fantastic site. It needs to be designed in a way to attract readers. Blogsites contain lots of articles and images. So the site must be robust. Same goes if you have a forum.
News portal or directory website is another kind which are very simple. If you like to feed information to people then this type is your way to go. What do you get in return? Lots of traffic. And more traffic means you can earn more from advertisement.
If you have big plan in your mind and like to dream big and connect people then go for a social media website. The famous Facebook is a social website. There are so many already. But people might be bored with the conventional ones. These sites need lots of security and hosting space.
My best friend was always fascinated about mobile sites, it was not only fun but also was a source for earning. If you have the same in mind then why not create a mobile site. Its bit easier if you can put the sizes and dimensions right. Mobile sites are usually lighter and has less things to work with.
Do you have portfolio or some good stuff to show off? Try creating portfolio website. This type is usually for Artists, musicians, actors, photographers, architects, freelancers. This is where you can easily showcase your work and talent or do marketing. This type of website is bit smaller than e-commerce sites as it represents an individual. These types can be bit heavy as well.
To sum up, in modern day’s website is not only for business use but also for personal use. Many professionals are creating personal websites. It helps other people to reach them. It can be a client or a family member. Either ways, it’s a great way to introduce yourself to the world. Moreover, these days its really easy to create a site using wordpress. If you are looking forward to earn some extra, start with wordpress, create a site, write about important stuff and use advertise.


  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to
    be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
    with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the
    issue solved soon. Cheers
