Sites, Site collection & Web Application

Site Collection (SPSite)
  • The Site Collection is the root site of the web site.
  • A site collection consists of a top-level site and its subsites.
  • It is a logical unit for administration - there are settings that can only be configured at the site collection level (in other words, at the top-level site).

Site (SPWeb)

  • Must belongs to a Site Collection.
  • A Site can contains sub sites.

Web Application (SPWebApplication)

  • Just a web application in IIS
  • Each Web application can host many site collections.
  • A web application needs to have at least one Site Collection
