What is a web application?
So, you may be wondering what exactly is a web application? How is it different from a website?
Technically, any web application that is hosted on the internet and accessed through your browser is a website, but for most what differentiates an application from a website is interactivity.
Where a website is made to be a platform for delivering content or information — think restaurant websites, news sites, or blogs — a web application is designed to be an interactive experience.
When using a web application, users enter and retrieve information by communicating with a database to perform tasks and services for the user. Any time you use your browser to login to your social media account, submit an online payment, manage your bank account online, or check your e-mail, you’re using a web application.
