Websites have become very essential for one and all. Be it travel, education, hobby, sports, entertainment, health, lifestyle – you will be amazed at what information you receive from the various websites.

Depending upon the purpose of the website you will find numerous websites on the World Wide Web. If you study the Internet carefully you will find many governmental agencies posting their current news, information and press releases on the Internet. Similarly you have schools, educational institutions and colleges providing information and study material online too. This proves helpful for the students who studying online or for interested students who wish to study in a particular institution.

On the other hand you also have websites which allow you to upload photographs and slide shows for viewing them online yourself and friends as well. You will come across many sites which allow you to do so and even interact with people to a certain extent.

Similarly you have blogging sites which allow you to post blogs and express your opinion or review about a service or goods, even your experience with anything and everything.

On the other hand, some of the most interesting websites come up here include ecommerce sites and on line shopping sites which undoubtedly work wonders for businesses. You will be amazed to know how many people prefer to shop online and get things delivered at the address of their choice.

Moving on to slightly technical side of the websites… you will come across a static website and a dynamic website. A static website is one which stores its pages on the server and enables the user to use to view them. Most of these websites provide information about a company and its products using text, images and even audio/video clips, animation and lot more.

A dynamic website works slightly differently; wherein the data is displayed according what is demanded by the user. This enables the website to store fewer pages on the server, and retrieve those pages when they are actually demanded for. As the entire page is done up with piece by piece coding which can be put to use according to the information gathered from a database making the website more user friendly and interactive.
