Explain Website Testing ?

Website testing or web testing is simple terms for checking website or web application for potential bugs before its made live or before code is moved into the production environment. During web testing, the web application's security, the functioning of the site, its access to handicapped as well as regular users and its ability to handle traffic is checked.

Web testing checklists

1. Functionality Testing
2. Usability testing
3. Interface testing
4. Compatibility testing
5. Performance testing
6. Security testing

1. Functionality Testing :  Functionality testing is used to check if your product is as per the specifications you intended for it as well as the functional requirements you charted out for it in your developmental documentation. 

2. Usability testing : Usability testing is the process by which the human-computer interaction characteristics of a system are measured, and weaknesses are identified for correction. Usability testing includes the following:
  • The website should be easy to use.
  • Instructions provided should be very clear.
  • Check if the instructions provided are perfect to satisfy its purpose.
  • The main menu should be provided on each page.
  • It should be consistent enough.

3. Interface Testing : In web testing, the server side interface should be tested. This is done by verifying that communication is done properly. Compatibility of the server with software, hardware, network, and the database should be tested. The main interfaces which are tested :
  • Web server and application server interface
  • Application server and Database server interface.

4. Compatibility Testing : Compatibility of your website is a very important testing aspect. See which compatibility test to be executed:
  • Browser compatibility
  • Operating system compatibility
  • Mobile browsing
  • Printing options

5. Performance Testing :  The web application should sustain to heavy load. Web performance testing should include:
  • Web Load Testing
  • Web Stress Testing

6. Security Testing : The primary reason for testing the security of a web is to identify potential vulnerabilities and subsequently repair them.
  • Network Scanning
  • Vulnerability Scanning
  • Password Cracking
  • Log Review
  • Integrity Checkers
  • Virus Detection
