Dynamic websites are blog sites, e-commerce sites, calendar or to-do sites, or any site that needs to be updated often.
Dynamic websites use languages like PHP to interact with the information stored in a database. For this reason, dynamic websites are much more complicated and expensive to create. Not only is web hosting required, but databases or servers must be created as well. The languages used to create dynamic websites are also much more complicated than the client-side languages.
Most dynamic websites utilize a Content Management System to manage their content. Often, developers will create a custom CMS for their clients (using PHP and MySQL), but that’s not necessary. There are tons of other systems available for your use like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.
You might hear that PHP and ASP.NET are used to generate HTML dynamically. That really just means that those programming languages can, with direction, change and write HTML without a person having to actually go into the code and change it.
Another term which is often associated with dynamic websites is CRUD, which stands for Create, Read, Update and Delete. All four of these things happen when you’re working with a dynamic website because they refer to the functionality of a database. Think about a blog. In any blogging platform, that’s successful anyway, you have to have the ability to create content, then be able to read or view that content on the page. You should be able to update or edit your posts and then have the option to delete them as well. All that work happens in the database. Content management systems make this process possible.
A dynamic website changes or customizes itself frequently and automatically. There is a wide range of software systems, such as CGI, Java Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP), Active Server Pages and ColdFusion (CFML) that are available to generate dynamic web systems and dynamic websites. Various web application frameworks and web template systems are available for general-use programming languages like Perl, PHP, Python and Ruby to make it faster and easier to create complex dynamic websites.
