I will compare three sites here:

Encyclopedia Titanica, a site created in 1996 to serve the needs of Titanic scholars and amateur history buffs alike. It contains a detailed biographical database of passengers and crew, scholarly articles and on-line presentations, images and multimedia animations of the ship, discussion lists and documents pertaining to the 1911 disaster. Contains 2100 biographies, over a thousand images, and 750 documents.

The R.M.S. Titanic, a site created by the R.M.S. Titanic, Inc., which secured salvage rights to the wreck of the Titanic. Their site contains information about historical exhibits, articles and animations of the wreck of the ship, images of artifacts, articles about the ship's sinking. This is a commercial site.

and

The website of the Titanic Historical Society, founded in 1963 in Massachusetts, which documents the Titanic disaster and articles from the Titanic Communicator, the journal of the society. [http://www.titanic1.org/]
