With so many different websites out there, it makes sense to sort them all into many different types.
In fact, when talking about types of websites, you could write a list that goes on forever – but I have narrowed it down to the most common ones.:
Blog – online journal or informational page that is regularly updated.
Business – generic website detailing all areas of a business.
Brochure – one or two page-website displaying a company’s basic information.
Crowdfunding – used for accepting ‘pledges’ and donations for any given cause.
Ecommerce – website selling products or services.
Educational – usually an interactive website with educational information on any given topic.
Media or Entertainment – regularly updated content on current affairs, sports, and entertainment.
Non-profit – similar to business websites but encouraging visitors to assist with any given cause.
Personal – online resume displaying your work experience and kills.
Portal – typically internal websites for schools or businesses where users log in to systems.
Portfolio – online portfolio displaying your creative work.
