Basic Site Types
The most basic web site is an extension of a simple business card, business name, contact details and basic brand image.
The business card site offers some extras over an actual business card in that it can provide improved imagery, simple product descriptions and is available 24/7. In general you should also have access to email services with you domain name (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This type of site extends from the business card sit to include much more information about you products and services but falls short in offering actual payments online.
This type of site is dedicated to the online sale of products and services.
An intranet is very similar to the internet except and can only be seen within the computer network of a single company.
An intranet allows for business information, communication and community to develop across workers who may be geographically of time shifted from other staff members.
