In a dynamic web site, parts that are requested to be presented with different content are kept in a database, and when the page is called, this information is taken from the database and presented in HTML codes. As a result, the information that goes to the computer that calls the page is the same as in a static web site, but it was created on demand. Let’s assume that the pages to be displayed are a generic structure and their contents are variable. In this case, the general design (eg title, logo, etc.) is contained in the database alone or in a script (eg PHP, ASP, JSP code) that will generate dynamic content, but there is a variable in the script where the content (eg text) is located. This variable is used for each page to be changed by reading from the corresponding text database.
Why Dynamic Web Site/Page?
Especially when you want to make a change in sites whose contents are frequently changing or have a large content, only changing the relevant data in the database is enough to change the page. It can be updated and improved easily and quickly. Similarly, if a change to the site’s overall appearance is to be made, this is done only once on the page structure. That is, once the change is made, an unlimited number of pages are affected by this change.
What are the Advantages of Dynamic Websites?
- Quick and easy to update.
- If a panel is provided to access the database, the site can be updated without being dependent on the web producer.
- Use less space on the web server.
What are the Disadvantages of Dynamic Websites?
- Higher cost on smaller sites.
- A hosting plan that offers a database is required.
