According the various type of tasks web developers perform, they are divided into three main categories: back-end developers, front-end developers, and full-stack developers. Some Web developers also works as a Webmaster.

Let’s understand each type of web developer in short:

Front-end web development

Front-end web developers works to develop the user interface thought which user can interact with the website & can access the features of the website.

Front-end developers design the physical layout of each page, integrate graphics, and use HTML, CSS and JavaScript to enhance the site.

The scope of Full-stack developer is high. Why? let’s understand.

Full-stack web Developer

Full-stack web developer works to developer both back-end & front-end side of the web application.

These developers have the knowledge to build a complete website and may work for organisations that don’t have the budget for a large website team. 

And Obviously, any of the company wants to works in low budget as much possible, so they away like to hire full stack developers.

You don’t need to be perfect in both front-end and back-end. Only be professional in one side, and should have knowledge of another side.


Webmasters are essentially website managers or tester. Their primary responsibility is to keep the website updated & well performed, ensuring that the links and applications on each page work properly.

If any of the mistake found in the website, webmasters immediately informed to the web development team to resolve it.

The Average Web Developers salary in US is approx $70,200, which is 61,24,480.58 in Indian rupees. But in India people get max 10 to 30 lack rupees per annual.
