Configuration: domain name and server.
Website development requires a domain name and server, and the domain name is an important entrance to the. Therefore, some companies will spend a lot of money to purchase domain names or good servers. From the appearance of the program, it seems that no domain name is required. In fact, mini programs also require a domain name, but the domain name is not important and does not appear. Similarly, mini programs also need to purchase a server.
Type: display, transaction type
From a functional point of view, websites can be roughly divided into display type, marketing type, and transaction mall (transaction type). Mini programs, according to their functions, can also be divided into display type and transaction type (mini program mall).
Production: outsourcing, self-construction, templates
If a customer wants to make a website, there are several different options in terms of working methods. They can choose to form their own team and design and operate it themselves; they can also choose to outsource it to a website building company; they can also choose a template website building system and purchase a system to build a website by themselves. The same goes for online mini programs. You can outsource it to a design company, you can form your own team, or you can purchase a template developer like Youzan.
Functionality: How different the content and functions are
Current website building technology allows websites to present a large amount of content and functions. Even complex functions such as social platforms and large capacities such as games can be carried by the website, and with the help of a distributed architecture, users can get a good experience. However, this is not the case with small programs. The content carried by a small program is limited, and the functions it carries are relatively simple. It should be avoided that a single small program carries too many functions.
In terms of audit rights: there are differences in the size of autonomous rights
When building a website, there are relatively few restrictions. The right to review the content and services of the website rests with the website owner. Even some gray industries and companies can use the website to promote their business as long as they register their domain names. However, the review of small programs is stricter. The code needs to be submitted to the platform for review, the content and products will also be inspected by the platform, and the owner’s permissions are restricted.
Price: Different types vary greatly
Generally speaking, for the same type of websites and mini programs, the development cost of mini programs is lower than that of websites. On the one hand, mini programs have relatively single functions, a relatively regular layout, and cannot access value-added functions, so they are cheap. The website may need to optimize the code, add more functions, require background programs, and establish a database, resulting in high development costs.
