What is a web application? How is it different than a website? Great questions! The difference primarily surrounds what purpose they serve. Websites are typically considered informational whereas web applications are functional. For example, a news website would be considered a website and your online accounting software a web application. The lines are often blurred when you consider content management systems are technically a web application and most modern websites use a content management system. Web applications are the modern day replacement for desktop applications, which are programs that run locally on your computer versus over the web.
