The Advantages of Dynamic Website Content

Written By: David A. Saharkhiz

Think about your own surfing behavior. What types of websites do you visit the most often; which ones keep drawing you back?

If you are like most internet surfers, you will spend much of your time hanging around websites with dynamic website content, or content that is updated constantly or personalized to your preferences. The age of static, archival websites is long gone, in in its place is a dynamic and powerful internet driven by PHP, ASP, CGI, and Java.

But setting up a website with full SQL support and advanced features is not an easy task, especially for someone who is still waist deep in HTML coding.

So…what to do?

If you don’t have the time or the will to commit to an advanced website with cutting-edge features and complicated scripts, there are still a good number of options that will make your website look more professional, with minimal effort.

An excellent resource is Hotscripts – you can find a huge number of complete server side scripts there, many of them free. Another great resource is this Random Text Generator, which is a powerful PHP script to generate random content on your website. Show a new quote every day!

In the end, the choice to go all-out is up to you, but with the help of a few handy scripts and some rudimentary server-side know-how, you can turn a static page into an impressive multi-faceted datacenter overnight!
