Hello, creators. Can anybody explain the differences between Illustrator and Spark? Which one better serves website design?

Except for "Adobe" in the name, they aren't even slightly similar, or rivals, or alternatives. If you can tell us what leads you to consider them that way, we might be able to help explain what you are reading.
Illustrator is a general purpose tool for creating vector graphics and type. Anything from a dinner menu to a wine bottle label, T-shirt, technical drawing, architectural rendering, website assets, or a colorful illustration for a book cover. Illustrator can correctly produce graphics for a printing press, video, or the web.
Spark is narrowly focused on using templates to rapidly create a graphic or video that is ready to post directly to specific social media sites. That is all it does.
If you want to design a complete website, neither tool is the right one. Illustrator cannot build full HTML web pages that are linked to each other.
If you want to design assets for a website, such as headers, buttons, ads, and so on, Illustrator can be useful for that. Illustrator provides ways for you to export graphics in web-friendly formats, so that web developers can integrate them with website code.
adobe animate can create websites (using its canvas publishing option).
