Web Designing & Development
Web designing refers to both esthetic portion and usability of website which is done with the help of design programs such as Adobe Photoshop and other visible elements to create a layout.
Web development refers to adding soul to the web design to make it lively. The web developer defines the Functionality of a website using various programming languages.
There are two types of websites that can be developed i.e. Static and Dynamic
A static website looks basic and simply delivers information without any bells and whistles on the other hand a dynamic website is esthetic and follows a trend. In simple words a static website is Katrina and a dynamic website is Katrina with makeup.
All the static websites have a very poor user interface and will leave visitors with limited by imagination. Whereas in a dynamic website you can have an interactive web app that people can use, not just read.
A static website is the simplest kind of website one can ever build as it is made with basic coding however dynamic websites are much complex in development. This is the reason why static websites are developed quickly and are cheapest to develop and host, as compared to a dynamic website.
Though it may be easy to develop a static websites but when it comes to updating content or images it can be done only by someone with knowledge of website development whereas in a dynamic website the owner can get the ability to update the content or images with content management system.
Some examples of dynamic website features could be: content management system, e-commerce system, ability for clients or users to upload documents, create content or add information to a site.
