Website, eCommerce or an App – what type of website do I need?
Last updated on
For practical purposes, most websites can be split into 3 general groups – websites, eCommerce (where products can be purchased), or web apps.
So what type of website do you need:
1. Most projects use a standard website often with a CMS
A CMS is the software commonly used to build websites. All CMS come with an easy to use admin interface where you can add and edit your website content.
Here’s how to choose the right CMS for your website.
2. Get an eCommerce if you want to sell online
Most eCommerce sites are built using an eCommerce-specific CMS such as Shopify, Woocommerce, Prestashop or Magento.
If your project is particularly non-standard and requires extreme customizations, an eCommerce site can be built from scratch or with a framework (i.e. without a CMS) by a specialized web developer.
3. Get a web app if you need highly customized functionality
They are usually 100% customized to look and do exactly what you require.
