Static vs Dynamic Websites
If you created your current Business Website, it’s probably a static site that you used a web site creation wizard of some sort to create and every time you want to change it you have to go through all the steps to create it from scratch or use some complicated application to modify it. If you had website design company create your site it’s most likely still a static site. Every time you need something change you have to go through the same company to do it, taking days if not weeks to get it done and costing you more than you really think it’s worth to make a few changes.
With a new website designed by iDataPort your new site will be dynamic? What is a dynamic site? Dynamic sites have content that is stored in databases and pulled out and displayed as instructed by templates. This is a powerful way to build web sites. It may seem complicated at first, but the flexibility offered by dynamic sites is well-worth the price. Once the site is completed you’ll be able to just log onto your own website as an editor and make simple changes to the text of any of your pages, create new and update existing news articles on your site. Make changes to contact info, hours of operation, images being used on the web site, and anything else you would like to have personal control of.
Dynamic sites are…
• Better for developers – having content in databases allows them to get you what you need when you need it.
• Better for site owners – it puts publishing into their hands with tools meant for normal people to use.
• Better for visitors – because the site you create with it will be more informative and always current!
