What is a Dynamic Web Page

The word Dynamic means changing regularly or lively. Dynamic web page is a web page that displays different content each time it’s viewed and the information of the dynamic web page is being changed in such a way that when the user log in, a different set of information is deliver and when the context is being entered and if any interaction takes place with the user, the set of information changes which means that the information does not remain constant each and every time the web page is being visited by the user. Most common example is the use of date and time ticker on the web sites which keeps on changing regularly.

Dynamic content Web site can be maintained directly by the customers (if developed by professionals) also. Such Web site initially costs more to develop, but then the customer doesn’t have to pay Web professionals every time they need to change something on the site. If the changes are to be done frequently then customer should go with a dynamic Web site.

Many characteristics are offered by the dynamic web pages but mostly the characteristics are the ones which differentiate it from other aspects. The dynamic web page is quite vibrant; the interaction and inter connectivity are the two important features for it which in fact ensures a good dynamic web page.

These pages can be created using:

Client-Side Scripting:

Web pages that change in response to an action within that web page by the user, such as a mouse or a keyboard action are made using client side scripting language. Scripting languages such as JavaScript and Flash allow a web page to respond to client-side events. For example – The validation which is done on Sign-Up page for creating an e-mail address uses client side scripting.

Server-Side Scripting:

Web pages that change when a web page is loaded or visited use server-side scripting. These are created by using server side scripting languages. Server-side content is content that’s generated when a web page is loaded. Scripting languages such as PHP , ASP, ASP.NET, JSP and Perl etc…allow a web page to respond to submission events. For Example – Login pages, forums, submission forms etc…all use server-side scripting since those web pages change according to what is submitted to it.

Dynamic web pages are created on fly and many web pages really do not exist on the server. On demand they are created when a user generates a query.
