What is a Dynamic Web Page?

A dynamic web page is a page that changes based on the user. It responds to the user's needs, and provides relevant information to meet them, by accessing information in a connected database. This type of web page allows users to go beyond reading text and looking at graphics. It allows for an interactive experience, with the user being in control of the information he views.

There are many types of dynamic web pages. One of the most popular is Google Earth™. Most map websites are dynamic; users input the address they are traveling to, and the page returns with directions and a map to the location.

Another example of a dynamic web page is a search engine. Web site searches, where the user is looking for information on just one site, are also dynamic pages. Other examples include email websites, banking sites where users can access their personal financial information, and sites that base their information on location, such as a national weather page. Any website that offers information based on any data the user provides is a dynamic page.

Dynamic web pages are often very simple, as far as their actual design. They offer a place for the user to type in data, and some information and basic graphics. After the user types in their data, this changes. The web page server accesses a database of information, searching for what the user has requested. Once the information is found, it is brought back to the web page, and displayed.

Creating a dynamic web page requires a certain level of previous programming experience. Having a basic understanding of a couple programming languages is essential. Javascript is a popular language to use for creating these types of web pages. Creating a web page that interacts with users can be difficult, especially for beginners to web page design and programming. It requires understanding and being able to use complicated code, and can be difficult to work with if you do not have a lot of previous experience.

Creating a user-friendly dynamic web page may be challenging, but it provides a great way for website owners to better meet the needs of people browsing their site. It allows people to find what they need in a quick and easy way, while keeping track of what information is being accessed, which give owners a way to access information about how their site is being used. Using this information, site owners can improve and expand their site in a way that benefits site visitors, increasing the success of the web site.

Great. Clear, simple, easy explanation.

i was searching for the easiest definition and here it is.

Yeah, this definition is great. Clearly if you're searching for what a dynamic page is, you probably don't understand computer speak very well either. So many definitions contain way too much verbiage, but this is straight to the point.

The fact that I am typing in this form and entering a code to submit makes this a dynamic web page!
