Web development is a broad term given to the website development. The website development could be done for the internet or the intranet. Internet refers to the hosting a website in the www domain name which can be accessed by general public. Intranet, on the other hand is meant for private use. The intranet pages can be accessed by members of the organization, company or from a university or a college. The intranet websites are mainly being used for communicating any kind of internal news, views, etc. Web development can be done with the help of open source or customized software.
Open source software refers to a computer program whose source code is published and available to the public. The open source software can be copied, modified and redistributed; however, they are governed by certain copyright laws and licences. Customized software, on the other hand are created to provide tailor made solutions to the specific group. The customized software is programmed based on the specific needs of the customer. One of the most important advantages of the website development using open source software is that they are cheap and comes at a reasonable cost (mostly free to use). Anyone can download and use open source software for free (or for some cost). As custom created softwares involve appreciable man hours to create, test and deploy, they are more expensive then open
Apart from this, while developing websites using open source software, the customer support available is minimal making the website development very challenging. However, while developing websites using customized software, constant support and help is being given.
Web development is a challenging task. It can be done using open source software or customized software. In respect to cost, open source software scores higher than any software available, however, in terms of facilities, customized software is much better than open source.
