Web Design and Development Wolverhampton
Development of websites has come a long way since the early days of the internet. Early on most websites were, what is known as 'Static'. This means that they were just made up of pages of information that didn't do anything, and were just readable, like books.
Nowadys the vast majority of Websites are what is called Dynamic. This is where the information on pages is always changeable, depending on what the user is looking for. This has changed the way that websites are now constructed. Where previously all the content on a page was written on the actual page , it is not so any more. Most of the information is now stored in databses, 'behind' the actual web pages. When a user clicks on a button or link to display some information, this then sends a command to the database to fecth the required information , and display it.
To achieve this ther are a lot more technologies involved other than HTML, which most people have heard about. The most common programming languages that are used to do this kind of work are PHP and MYSQL. There are others, but these are the most common.
Used in conjunction with HTML, these technologies allow users to fully interact with a website, and can achieve most things that are seen on modern websites.
