Database-Driven Systems

Database-driven web systems are powerful alternatives to traditional, static, HTML-based sites in the way they allow you to manage content.

The word "database-driven" may, at first, sound intimidating to the uninitiated - but what it means, simply, is that data (e.g. your site's content) is stored in an online database. Pages are created "on the fly" from this data when a user navigates through the site. 

Chances are you probably have been to a site that is database-driven without even realising it! Blogs, forums, online photo galleries, video sharing sites (e.g. and most news sites ( included) are examples.

Database-driven sites usually have one thing in common: they allow the site admin to login via a web-based interface to manage content without any programming knowledge. Any moderately computer-literate individual (e.g. one who can send out emails!) should have no difficulty operating such a site - and in the process, save a great deal of webmaster costs in keeping the content updated and relevant to your audience.

Contact us if you have a project in mind that requires a database-driven system.
