The Dynamic Experiment
Phoenix Wood's website is dynamically built using PHP, MySQL, Jquery, HTML5, CSS, JSON, AJAX, and Materializecss Framework.
By definition, a dynamic website contains Web pages that are generated in real-time. Code within the page is processed on a Web server and delivered to a client's browser in HTML.
Static Vs. Dynamic
A Static Webpage is hard-coded and does not display according to a Web server. These webpages are faster to produce, but it's tedious to edit multiple pages such as edits to product catalogs in Virtual Enterprise (VE).
A Dynamic Webpage, in terms of usage, is usually a single page loaded with several algorithms to display information retrieved from a Web server. For example, the individual product pages are actually a single webpage pulling information from user requests and displaying the requested info.
- Dynamic building takes significantly longer than Static building
- Updates on the catalog would involve 2+ database updates
- At minimum, 4 languages are required to build dynamic webpages
- There are real monetary costs to maintain a Web server
- Server updates are done, not on the browser like website builders, but through file transfer protocol (FTP) methods
With these and many more barriers, why would someone choose Dynamic?
Building websites dynamically anticipates real-world business expansion. By simplifying the means of updating the catalog and displaying products, Phoenix Wood achieves efficiency in adding, removing, and updating products to the website.
Massive E-Commerce sites such as Amazon utilize dynamic functions to not only display products, but also to suggest products through cookies and analytical algorithms.
Phoenix Wood's dynamic webpages pull product information from the web server and also display images, calculate product costs, integrate VE's buy button, build rating system, and much more.
Phoenix Wood's dedication to its products is further illustrated through its website.
