what is a website?

A website consists of files on a server that together are capable of displaying web pages in your internet browser. The most important files either contain or produce HTML (hypertext markup language) which describes the content and layout of the webpage. Other files often referenced in the HTML include image files or photos, a style sheet to make visual elements appear consistently and external Javascript files (for added interactivity), amongst others. Websites typically display text, images, video and sound and vary widely in their level of interactivity.

statis vs dynamic websites

A webpage displaying content that never changes (e.g. a news article) is called a static page. A webpage that displays content that is always changing is called a dynamic page (e.g. your online email inbox) and relies on a different strategy to produce HTML. Instead of HTML being predefined, a dynamic script produces specific HTML only when a user requests it, by using a programming language like Perl, PHP, Java, Ruby and others. These scripts allow a greater level of customisation and interactivity with users by connecting to databases for storage, remembering users between logins, sending automated emails and SMS etc.

what I do

I design and build websites. I can whip up anything from a simple one page static website to an eye-wateringly beautiful, dynamic database-driven platform that fulfils all your wildest dreams. Contact me and we can discuss your needs. I have used PHP, Perl, Java, MySQL, FBML and Javascript for projects thus far but am open to learning new coding languages and new platforms. I prefer to create websites that are self-service; this means that you change your content easily with a content management system whenever you want, without requiring my services to do so. A simple website can be running in under a week, though a more complex site will take longer. I can also book your domain (website address) for you, or you can use our instant domain booking tool to do so yourself.
