What is web development?

Web development is a broad term for any activity to develop a web site for the World Wide Web or an internet. This can include web design, shopping cart solutions, client-side/server-side scripting and web server configuration. However, among web professionals, "web development" usually refers only to the non-design aspects of building web sites, e.g. writing markup and coding. Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, or social network services.

What is difference between a static website and a database driven interactive website? What are static and dynamic websites?

Static websites are mostly informational website for start ups or for those businesses, where the business nature does not make it compulsory for the business owners to setup an interactive website. Those businesses where the target audience is internet savvy and we wish to interact with them via our business website, we develop interactive websites with database to store the business information and all other data published on the website.

Following chart shows the nature of content and features, most of the static and dynamic websites have:

Advantages of static websites

  • Faster and cheaper to develop
  • Cheaper to host

Disadvantages of static websites

  • Webmasters need to have knowledge of HTML/CSS/Photoshop etc to keep their websites updated or they need to hire a website design agency for maintenance of their website
  • Static websites are not interactive - website visitors can not search within your website or interact with website owners

Dynamic/Interactive web sites on the other hand can cost you more initially, but the advantages are multiple. Foremost advantage is, website owners can update Dynamic websites with little or no knowledge of HTML/CSS or any design tool and they can add new content to the site with ease. For example, news and events could be posted to the site through a simple browser interface. Most important reason for developing Dynamic websites is to make a website interactive with end objective of giving better and pleasant experience to the website visitors. Some examples of interactive website features: content management system(CMS), e-commerce system, bulletin / discussion boards, search information based on specific criteria, ability for users to upload files and documents etc.

Advantages of dynamic websites

  • Much more interactive and intelligent website
  • Easier to add and update content on the website
  • Where you need to collect and save your website visitors/users data in a database, you can do it by dynamic websites only or you need to use 3rd party services to save and keep your clients and subscribers data.

Disadvantages of dynamic websites

  • Compared to development cost of static websites, dynamic websites costs more
  • Design/Development costs more
  • Hosting costs a little more
