Web Applications and Websites in Visual Studio

Web Application:

A web application is an application that is accessed by users over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. The term may also mean a computer software application that is coded in a browser-supported programming language (such as JavaScript, combined with a browser-rendered markup language like HTML). When we create web applications in visual studio it doesn’t ask where we want to deploy it. It deploy on by default folder (local). Vs web App is different from IIS web App. When we publish web Application it asks where we want to deploy it.

How to Create a Web Application:

1). Open Visual Studio.
2). Click on File -> New -> Project
3). In the templates select Visual C# -> Web ->ASP.NET Empty Web Application and click ok.


A website, or web site, is a central location of various web pages that are all related and can be accessed by visiting the home page using a browser.There is a minor difference between web Application and website. Unlike web application when we create website it ask where we want to deploy it.
When we execute HTML page a website is created by default and a port is assigned to it.

How to Create a Website:

Meta Tag:

Each web page has its own Meta tag which describes that page. It is used by search engines /crawlers from which crawler knows what page is about. It contains keywords such as author.


Schema are HTML tags that webmasters can use to markup their pages in ways recognized by major search providers. It is also used by search engines. Schema is same for one category of pages.
