Techopedia explains Website Architecture

Website architecture is used in creating a logical layout of a website in line with the user and/or business requirements. It defines the different components that will make up a website and the services each component or the website will provide in whole.

Some of the factors that are part of website architecture are:

  • Technical constraints such as server, storage. memory and communication interfaces.

  • Functional aspects such as the type of services or processes the website will provide.

  • Visual appearance, i.e. the user interface, colors, buttons and other visual design elements.

  • Security parameters i.e. how the website will ensure secure access control and transactions.
