Web Site
A website is a collection of related web pages, images, videos or other digital assets that are addressed relative to a common Uniform Resource Locator (URL), often consisting of only the domain name, or the IP address, and the root path ('/') in an Internet Protocol-based network. A web site is hosted on at least one web server, accessible via a network such as the Internet or a private local area network.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Site
So in this case, DotNetFunda.Com is a website.

Web application
A web application is an application that is accessed over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. The term may also mean a computer software application that is hosted in a browser-controlled environment (e.g. a Java applet)[citation needed] or coded in a browser-supported language (such as JavaScript, combined with a browser-rendered markup language like HTML) and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_application
An intranet application for your company or any company is an web application.

The definition of client server application as written http://toastytech.com/guis/remotecliserver.html is below
A client/server application is a piece of software that runs on a client computer and makes requests to a remote server. Many such applications are written in high-level visual programming languages where UI, forms, and most business logic reside in the client application. Often such applications are database applications that make database queries to a remote central database server (this can, however, get much more complicated than that and involve other communication methods).
