What is Site Definition ?

A Site Definition is a group of files that reside on the Web server and that define a unique type of SharePoint site.

What this means is that if you have a custom solution that needs a list or library defined across a number of sites then a site definition is for you! The Site Definition can contain a lot of configuration to make a site very specific – for example, site columns, an announcement, and content types.
