Frequently Asked Questions

JavaScript, HTML, and CSS are the three most basic technologies used in designing and developing web applications. But other programming languages are usually utilized as well, including Java, Python, and PHP, among many others.

The difference lies in the nature of the web content. If it offers only information about a product or service, or it exists solely as an information hub, then you can categorize it as a website. Examples include news sites, wiki sites, most blogs, and corporate sites that contain mostly information only. Web apps, on the other hand, facilitate user interaction, or allow end users to input or manipulate information, perform transactions, or interact with other users. The most common web apps today are web email providers, e-commerce sites/online stores, and social media platforms. Note though that some websites may integrate a web application in their pages. For example: A website for a law firm that contains an online contact form in the Contact Us page.

The foremost advantage offered by a web app is accessibility. Because the web app is hosted online, end users can easily access it through the Internet. Web apps also offer the advantage of mobility, wherein people can make use of apps even if they’re not in the office, as long as they have an Internet connection. Lastly, most web apps are designed with scalability in mind, which means that they are built with the consideration that they can be expanded or upgraded in the future if the need arises.
