Types of Websites

Types of Websites

There used to be very few types of websites. Now there are many different types.(Wikipedia) There are 3 main groups of websites.

  • Business to Consumer (B2C)
  • Business to Business
  • Blackhat

There is one that I will not add below because it doesn’t fit:

  • Elite Website: These type of websites that do very unique from the rest of the businesses online. Kickstarter was one such website before other platforms joined them and became classified as a “funding” website. Parallax would have also fit this category at one point in time. Most types are considered this type until others start coming into that market-space.
