Online Catalog is a website of any size, which presents certain goods, services or displays personal works: designs, photos, videos, illustrations, paintings, various samples, etc. The catalog website differs from a standard online store by the absence of a shopping cart and other online shopping options. The elements of the web catalog are primarily intended for familiarization with the assortment. Buying a product or downloading a design/book is a secondary and optional function of such type of the site.
Internet catalogs come in many different formats. It can be a reduced online store, online library, announcement board, portfolio, price lists. These types of sites differ in their structure and technology, but their content is the same. The elements of the catalog can be located in general and thematic categories, subcategories, in alphabetical categories or by any other indicators. The main page of the catalog site highlights key products or content that the visitor will not want to miss. A catalog website can be either very simple technically or very complex, so the cost of creating different catalogs can vary greatly. The Site Catalog package is basically a business project that is ordered for profit. But along with this, there are many catalogs of free literature, templates, designs, recipes, etc. - it all depends on the goal set by the customer. A web-catalog can also be created as part of a combined site. The most famous example of a combined site is a site that combines a product catalog and a blog.
