Here's how they seem to be defined as of March 2017:

  • Communities - Sub-domain sites built with Community Builder (Lightning), standard Salesforce UI (Tabs), or custom Visualforce.
  • Community Builder - A UI for click-and-drag construction of community pages.
  • Site.com Studio - Replaced by Community Builder (except for a couple features that take you back to Site.com Studio).
  • Site.com Sites - Replaced by Communities built with Community Builder.
  • Force.com Sites - Sub-domain sites that have no authentication built with Visualforce. (Authenticated VF communities are built in much the same way, but are technically distinct because of authentication).
