HI sandrine,

Advantages of Force.com sites are they are suitable for developers with experience using Visualforce, Force.com Sites lets you build custom pages and Web applications by inheriting Force.com capabilities including analytics, workflow and approvals, and programmable logic. So if you are looking to create sites programmatically using Apex and APIs, Force.com Sites is the product for you. Here’s what you can achieve with Force.com:
Create public, branded pages that anyone can access.
Leverage Visualforce to create private pages that you can add as a tab within your community.
Write your own controllers, or extensions to controllers, using Apex code.
Create custom login or self-registration pages.
Build dynamic web applications, such as an event management application.
