Email vs Website
In this age of electronic communication it is possible for a person to have multiple email ID’s, whether on the same mailing client or several clients. Have you ever paid attention to the address of an email? It is always so and [email protected], or so and [email protected] But, so is the address of a website, which is also Google.com or Facebook.com. Then what is the difference between an email and a website. It seems like there are more similarities than differences here. Let us take a closer look.
To begin with, email address is nothing else but a website. In fact, it is a small part of a website as email is a service that is used to send and receive messages. A website is commonly perceived as a collection of pages containing information or used for shopping purposes. However, there are many more purposes of websites such as social networking (like Facebook, Twitter etc), sharing of video clips (like You tube), search engine (like Google, Yahoo, MSN etc). Email clients like Gmail, yahoo mail, AOL etc are also websites that are exclusively being used for sending and receiving emails. All one has to do is to become a member by opening an account with a mail client and add others having an account with any email client.
What is the difference between Email and Website?
The major difference between an email and website address is seen in the use of @, which is never a part of a website address. Another difference is that email address is always written in lower case, whereas one often sees website addresses with mixed letters (may be to improve readability of the address as some addresses become too difficult to read and remember).
