The development of web applications has been a common solution in recent years due to the different possibilities they offer for accessibility and compatibility and because they require a lower price and time for their creation and maintenance.

However, once we have chosen to develop one, it is convenient to know the different types of web applications that exist to choose the one that best suits our needs. In this post, we will analyze the five most common types of web application development with some examples: static, dynamic web applications, CMS, E-commerce and web portal apps.



What are web applications?

Web applications are computer programs that run on a web server, which users access through the internet, using a browser. All the data you work with is stored on the web and is processed there, so, unlike desktop applications, they don’t need to be installed on your computer, but they do require a network connection.

Web applications are based on client-server architecture. They combine server-side scripts (PHP and ASP), to manage the storage and retrieval of information, with client-side scripts ( JavaScript and HTML), to offer information to users. This makes it possible to interact with them through online forms, content management systems, shopping carts, etc.

Characteristics of a web application

However, all web applications have a number of characteristics in common:

They do not need to be downloaded and installed on the device, they are hosted on the server and can be accessed from any browser, avoiding any space limitation.
They are very compatible and accessible. A single development is required for them to run on different operating systems and be accessible from any device with an internet connection.
Its maintenance and updating are simple. There is no incompatibility between versions because all users use the same one.
Website Vs. Web Application
The main differences between a website and a web application are that, as we will see with the following types of applications, these are focused on user interaction, are oriented to fulfil a specific task and are more complex. By providing more functionality, web applications have a backend, database, authentication, etc.

In addition, various programming languages ​​are used in them, such as JavaScript, Python, Ruby or PHP, and different frameworks and technologies are applied, such as Rails, Django, CakePHP or Angular.

Static web application

A static web application is what we normally understand as a website and is characterized by the following:

They are usually developed in HTML and CSS and some JavaScript may be used. They can present digital content with movements, such as videos, audio, banners, or animated GIFs.
It does not have many functionalities and the user cannot modify it by himself. They offer little or no interactivity.
Its update is complex, it is a slow, tedious and manual process.
Changing the contents is also complicated, you need to modify the HTML (re-encode the page) and update it on the server.
They are often used to provide concise and permanent information.
Some examples of static web applications are portfolios, digital resumes, company presentation pages, WebQuest, etc.

Web applications with the content manager (CMS)

Content management systems or CMS (Content Management System) allow administrator users to create and manage the content of the web application in a simple way. It is the most recommended option when the content of the application must be updated continuously, as in the application examples mentioned in the previous section. For this reason, many dynamic web applications usually have a content manager.


E-commerce is the type of web application used for electronic commerce, which continues to grow in Dubai. Its development is more complex than that of the previous ones since it must allow online transactions to be carried out through different payment methods (credit and debit cards, PayPal, etc.).

Likewise, an effective management panel must be created for the administrator, so that he can add, update and delete products and manage orders and payments, which must be in sync with the stock at all times. And all this without neglecting usability to provide a good user experience.

Some examples of e-commerce web applications are Amazon, Ebay, Carrefour or El Corte Inglés.


There are many types of web application development, each with different features and utilities. From these application examples, you can get an idea about the different options currently available. And, when choosing, assess all the alternatives, to opt for the web application that best meets your requirements or those of your customers.

Google web apps and Microsoft 365 are some of the best-known examples. With them, they offer, among other options, word processors, spreadsheets, email programs and online storage.

Google’s suite of web apps also makes teamwork easier by allowing you to share documents and your calendar and allow multiple members to access the same version simultaneously, regardless of location and device. But there are many applications that we use every day, to interact with our friends and family, perform banking or do online shopping.

Types of web applications

There are five of the main types of web application development that exist today:

Dynamic web application

Dynamic web applications have the following features:

Greater technical complexity.
They use databases to load the information and the contents are updated each time the user accesses the application.
Updating content is easy, most of it is managed through a CMS. No need to go to the server.
For its development, there are numerous languages, such as PHP or ASP.
They allow the implementation of numerous functionalities, such as forums or databases.
It supports many layout and presentation possibilities.
There is interaction in them. The user can make changes.
Some examples of dynamic web applications are personal and corporate blogs, news and current affairs pages, and digital magazines and newspapers.


Three of the most common CMS are:

WordPress. It is the best known and most widespread of all. It stands out for being more affordable for beginners than other options, for the community around it and for the infinity of options it provides.
Joomla! Free software content manager with a long history like WordPress. It provides great flexibility, although it is more recommended for experienced web designers or developers than for beginners. Although it also has a large community to lean on.
Drupal. Another open source CMS. Its modular architecture allows for a lot of customization. It is mostly used for building social publishing platforms and communities.

Portal WebApp

The web app portal is a type of web application that allows access to the various sections, categories or sections through a home page. In it you can have a user profile and access forums, chats, email, search engines, recent content, etc. In short, it allows access to all the information that you want to provide to the user from a single point.

It is the most interesting option to offer an interface adapted to the needs of users, who must register to access the portal. Some examples of web portal apps are government, educational or health portals, for access by citizens, students, teachers and patients, respectively.
