Types of Websites


Hello Guys

Lets look at different kinds of websites , the reason for this post is because a lot of people contact web developers for web projects and really don't know what kind of website they want.

This post will enable you make decisions when next you choose to have a website or planning to have one and how much you can get this kind of websites

you have a lot of different categories of types of websites trying to accomplish different things As you consider how best to build your own website, carefully consider what type of website you want it to be, When you can narrow down the goals and setup you have in mind, you can more easily identify the other websites in your category to look to for inspiration

Note that all website are not the same in category and price, you might need just a small business website

ECOMMERCE

This is the most popular website type, everyone wants an ecommerce website most of the time for nothing, An e-commerce website is a website people can directly buy products from

You’ve probably used a number of e-commerce websites before, most big brands and plenty of smaller ones have one, Any website that includes a shopping cart and a way for you to pay online is an ecommerce website

examples of ecommerce websites are Jumia, Konga, Nigerianmadeshoes


Blog/Personal Website

The term “blog” is short for “weblog,” which refers to an online journal, Blogs began as personal mini sites that people used to record their opinions, stories, and other writings as well as photos and videos.

Share pictures, share thoughts, or treat your site like a digital CV. The choice is yours!
A lot of Nigerians call themselves bloggers whereas they are just news reporters like punch and co lol, bloggers write out opinions and not steal information from other website.

Examples are Linda Ikeji, Instablog, efefemis blog


Web Portal

A web portal is a specially designed website that brings information from diverse sources, like emails, online forums and search engines, together in a uniform way. Usually, each information source gets its dedicated area on the page for displaying information; often, the user can configure which ones to display

Web portals can be internal websites for organizations like schools, or for big businesses

Example of a web portal are Yahoo, MSN, nysc and university school portal


Corporate

A website that is used to officially represent a brand on the Internet, and which is often used as the landing page for advertising content, Websites can be created and maintained by an individual, group, business or organization to serve a variety of purposes

Examples are Reinalake, Dangote, Banks and schools fall under this categories


Nonprofit Website/ Crowd Funding Websites

In the same way that businesses need websites to be their online presence, nonprofits do as well, A nonprofit website is the easiest way for many potential donors to make donations and will be the first place many people look to learn more about a nonprofit and determine if they want to support it.

Crowdfunding websites work by taking ‘pledges’ of different amounts from lots of people, in order to hit the target amount needed to produce the product

Examples are hub4queens, widows for africa etc


Educational Website

Educational websites can include websites that have games, videos or topic related resources that act as tools to enhance learning and supplement classroom teaching, These websites help make the process of learning entertaining and attractive to the student, especially in today’s age

This websites have helped a lot of us as we were growing up examples myschoolgist, nigeriaschool etc


Community Forum Website

I dont think there is much to say on this looking for a forum website, Nairaland is your friend even thou nairaland has become home to some of the most tribalist have ever seen in my life


News or magazine

News and magazine websites need little explanation The primary purpose of a news website is to keep its readers up to date on current affairs, The same can be true of an online magazine website, to some extent, although there is much more of a focus on entertainment examples are some nigeria blogs if you know you write on news and the story is not from you, you are under this category , punch, moneyreport, sahara reporters, legit and pulse let me add techpoint and techcabal this two are really helping us


Portfolio Website

Portfolio websites are sites devoted to showing examples of past work. Service providers who want to show potential clients the quality of the work they provide can use a portfolio website to collect some of the best samples of past work they’ve done. This type of website is simpler to build than a business website and more focused on a particular task: collecting work samples

examples are web design companies etc


Social Media

Social media websites are pretty unique in terms of both functionality and content. Social media sites were created as a place to share thoughts, images and ideas, and are increasingly become the go-to destination for people to read up about things like the news examples is the defunct lagbook, this guys were brilliant , facebook,twitter and linkedln


Real Estate Portal

The term “Real Estate portals” is just a fancier way of referring to real estate websites, Many realtors and property management specialists now own their own websites because they realize the value of these sites when it comes to generating leads, bringing in prospective tenants and buyers, and closing deals for them

examples are goke awolowo and co, brick makers nigeria, brooks assets and resources


Classified Websites

Re: Types Of Websites | Softplace.com.ng by wwwtortoise(m): 3:43pm On Aug 10
Can a website be upgraded to another type in the nearest future?

Like a blog being upgraded to an ecommerce site using same URL name?

How much will it cost to setup a corporate website?
Does it have any recurrent cost implications?
