There are generally three types of websites:
- Brochure websites: A Brochure website is one with very limited functionality and is the most common type of website on the Internet. At most, a brochure website may have a simple email form such as the contact form at the top of this page. Common implementations of brochure websites are for small to medium businesses who only need an online presence to showcase their products or services.
- Web Applications / Database Driven: Web Applications are Database Driven websites which have a front end and a back end to facilitate functionality. A web application is based on the design process that a brochure website will go through and it will include custom programming to perform the goals of a client's business requirements. These goals can be a scheduling system or internal functionality required by the individual business needs. Some web application websites are used for business to business communications such as libraries who want to access a list of ISBN details for example. All web applications get a custom Functional Specification written prior to programming.
