Community websites are considered Web 2.0. However, if there are Web 2.0 websites, then there should be the older versions—the Web 1.0. Many are still confused on how to determine the difference between the two Web versions. The best way to determine the difference between the two is to define them first.

The Web 1.0 is the older mode of World Wide Web. Any website which was designed or styled before the Web 2.0 phenomenon are all considered as part of the Web 1.0. In other words, the Web 1.0 refers to the websites before the boom of Internet usage through community websites.

Meanwhile, the Web 2.0 is described as the developments done to the technology of World Wide Web and its web design. The Web 2.0 is aiming to develop the creativity, collaboration, functionally, and information sharing of the Web. The development of the Web 2.0 has made a lot to the evolution of different web-based communities like social networking sites and blogs.

There are obvious design elements that are only used for the Web 1.0 and not present in the Web 2.0. One of these is the static web pages compared to the dynamic contents generated by users in the other version. The Web 1.0 also uses framesets and tags that were introduced during the so-called first browser war. This also features online guestbooks and GIF buttons. The typical size of Web 1.0 is 88×31 pixels.

However, the Web 2.0 is featuring different techniques like cascading style sheets, microformats, folksonomies, rich Internet applications, mashups, wikis, forums, Internet privacy, syndication, REST, and APIs.

Overall, it can be said that the Web 2.0 is more advanced and easier to use. But the power of Web 1.0 can never be denied with other websites specially those made for businesses.
