Websites are used in a lot of different ways so their application varies accordingly. Generally speaking, website can be static or dynamic. Depending on their application , websites can be personal, commercial, government, non-profit etc.
We believe that there are only two types of website:
Based on our way of thinking regarding these website types, all the web apps and websites we have built so far were made with a purpose of mainly increasing the overturn and profit.
Websites we build are exclusively made for making profit.
Static website’s content doesn’t allow interactive communication with a website owner. This type of website is usually programmed in HTML ( Hypertext Markup Language – basic programming language for building websites) with a help of CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) – programming language used for formatting and defining styles (looks) of the website elements. If there is multimedia (audio or video) content automatically activated on the web page without user interaction, that also means that the webpage (or website) is static.
Dynamic webistes unlike static allow changes in layout, looks, and can generate new content depending on user request and interaction. There are different platforms, programming languages and engines for creating dynamic websites, such as ASP ( Active Server Pages), Java, ColdFusion, JSP (Java Server Pages) etc.
Complex websites are usually created using programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby and others that allow quite faster creation process.
Dynamic websites need to have a database for pages to communicate with using a specific programming language.
We are certain that static websites belong to the past given the fact that there is a huge increase in social and business activities on the internet, as well as new services, therefore dynamic websites are the future.
Forget about websites with a few pages and try to understand the information society we live in today. Information and knowledge are key resources in modern times. If you’re not able to timely and efficiently push the information to the internet, your business is in serious trouble.
Anyone who thinks that today’s websites are the same as ones before year 2000, and that it is enough to pay 100-200 euros for building a website, should invent a time machine to take them back in 20th century because there is no place for such “businessmen” in the 21st.
Placing websites on the internet requires for the company to have their own webserver or to use someone else’s server space, ISP’s (Internet Service Provider) hosting services.
What is the difference between those two above mentioned ways of storing a website?
Buying and maintaining a webserver is not cheap. Powering a webserver requires complete technical knowledge which most companies do not have.
Companies that offer hosting services have their own server (or multiple servers) they take care of the maintenance and rent the server space to other companies to store their websites and other applications..
We only use hosting services from largest international companies such as GoDaddy (the largest American ISP) or Loopia (the largest Swedish ISP) for a simple reason: these are the only one we trust.
