Once the building of websites was only in the domain of web designers and programmers. But things changed with the introduction of software that enabled people to create static HTML based websites. However the making of dynamic database enabled websites has always been that much more difficult, requiring specialist programmers, that is of course until now.
Dynamic Vs Static website design
There are two main types of website – static and dynamic.
A static site is usually basic, one that is written in HTML (Hyper Text Mark-up Language) which is the code of the page that is read and displayed by your browser (ie Internet Explorer or FireFox).
A dynamic site is one that is written using a server-side scripting language such as PHP or ASP. In a dynamic site the content is called by the scripting language from a database or other files which is then displayed to the user on their browser.
There are many advantages of having a dynamic website which is connected to a database. Information such as products or members which can include names, details, images and prices can be easily organized and structured to create pages which can be sorted and viewed in a variety of different ways depending on your requirements.
The ability to connect to a database enables you to manage, add, update, change and remove your content with ease. You can create an interface which allows you or whoever you want to input and manage your data via web-based administration pages.
