Hi friend

check ans

A web site is like a foundation and can host several web applications.

A web application serves a specific function such a shopping cart or a blogging application.

So a web site can have a message board, a blog, a photo gallery and many other types of web applications under it's cloud.

Definition of Web Application


An application that is delivered using Internet technology and meets one or more of the following conditions:

Utilizes a database (such as Oracle or SQL Server)

Is developed using an application development tool (such as Oracle Internet Developer Suite or Visual Studio)

Extracts data from multi-record files

Requires a constantly running server process (such as Newsgroups and Chatrooms)

Stores input data from data entry screens or web forms

Depending on its requirements, a web application may be an Internet Application or an Intranet Application.

Definition of Website


The entire collection of web pages and other information (such as images, sound, and video files, etc.) that are made available through what appears to users as a single web server
