After having printed paper can not be changed, the type is defined and will have to wait until the next number appears. Imagine, however, that the best reporter you just brought shattering, stunt, but you can not publish because it is already late.

Similarly, once a static web site is already published, it will not change until the next edition hard, should the webmaster or someone who is familiar with HTML, Flash or edit such content specifically to address and to bestir healthy.

Dynamic website, on the other hand uses programming in addition to the layout and not only to allow the flow of data within and outside the facility, but to make quick and meaningful connections with the database.

Advantages of the static site

Operating principles of a dynamic site

To tell you their weaknesses and to understand them, let me first explain how to operate your own dynamic site.

In the most general case, at least for a dynamic site is needed three things:
Server software support tools that use the site
Database, such as MySql
At least one dynamic page, such as a Php code that connects to the database

Here we go: Our Php code associated with the database. It can reproduce like himself pages of N number of times. With the introduction of new pages or articles on your site, you simply multiply the same page.

Here comes the main limitation of dynamic sites and the control of content (CMS) - all of them are just a template, template - Html code inserted in Php, integrated naturally with more or less CSS and Javascript on the site.

In simple words for people who have not yet managed to understand: Our Php code (template) has programmed a number of N positions in the template by which to achieve some level of flexibility in the appearance of dynamic site. How does all this?

For example we made 10 position in the template and they are in it as follows (the names of the items are written - banner, top, toolbar, etc.)

The idea is this: After we have programmed the position of the template, each of them may be on or off the page of the site. For example, in our site each position is elected separately from its own control panel box - whether it has or not on that page. Thus, a dynamic template of the site with 20 programmed positions achieved 20h20 = 400 possible combinations appearing on the site. (Recently, most sites that are produce 30h30 = 900 combinations)
What happens when the heading is not included on that page?

These positions in our templates are fully flexible (or detectable skrivaemi) - where the position of a page is not included, other items are automatically expand and occupy all their available space. Thereby achieve stylish, beautiful and professional looking sites with huge amounts in their functionality.

Examples of items in the template:
If all positions are excluded in our sample page, the article itself - its text will occupy the entire field
If another page include only position USER1, the page will be 2 columns - left menu of the site and say the right will be the article
If a third-page headings include USER1 + USER6, USER7, USER8 + BANNER, will now get a professional looking page with a logo or banner on top (whatever we are in position USER1), the menu on the left (we should be pre-made menus, which are inserted in Position USER1) and three fields beneath the article, ordered one to another (often also be used for small banners, links to other sites of the partners or just a modulche which displays the latest or most read articles on our site as a link) .

Features of dynamic site

Dynamic web sites also have their challenges: good programmers are harder to find, more often requires that one or more people to get involved in the design of a dynamic site. When choosing a programmer or developer, we must necessarily ask to see their sites designed. Here are our Portfolio Dynamic sites. 

How can I get a dynamic web site the cheapest?

Most cheaply and profitably, you can get perfect dynamic site associated with the best for 2007 and 2008 control system content, if you choose an existing design template in which we have in raw or semi-finished. Real because it stopped doing static sites for the price of 300 leva (in a set of hosting and domain for one years) is closer in price to more serious work of the static design.

Do not think this site will be beautiful, even on - the professional designers who have developed in most cases are much more accurate eye and sense, not to mention the experience, compared with a user who wants to have a site but in most cases can not even submit it exactly.

The prices for the unique design (which is entirely under your vision) is quite different from those here and this is normal, since many require more hours or even days to develop their work.
