Each site is different, and therefore the way it is put together and runs is different.
There are many ways to achieve the objectives set when the site is thought out and then implemented. These include:
- Macromedia Flash
9 times out of ten when you visit an interactive site it has been constructed with the help of Macromedia Flash. This creates streaming website pages that can start working before they have totally downloaded, unlike a normal image.
- CGI Scripts
CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface and is the means by which browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape, Opera etc) can communicate with the servers (the computers that make web pages available on the web).
One of the most famous CGI Scripts is Matt Wright's Formmail script which is usually used to send the contents of an enquiry form as an email. CGI Scripts can also be used for Auctions, Calculators, Calendars, Chat sites, Classified Ads, Content Management, Counters, Database Tools, Discussion Boards, E-Commerce, Form Processors, Games, Guestbooks, Image Manipulation, Password Protection, Polls and Voting, Postcards, Security, Site Mapping, Web Traffic Analysis and much, much more.
Stands for PHP:Hypertext Preprocessor. It is one of the main scripting languages in use on the internet and is often used for creating dynamic websites, particularly shopping systems. It is used on millions of websites around the world.
This is a very versatile programming language that enables all sorts of things to happen. These can vary from dynamic drop down menus to image slideshows.
Alerts and Prompts, Background Effects, Banner Rotation, Calculators, Calenders, Clocks, Cookies, E-Commerce, Email Scripts, Forms, Games, Graphs, Links and Buttons, Mouse Tricks, Navigation, Redirection, Text Effects, User Authentication, Control of Windows and Frames and more.
- Content Management System
We have recently added this means of editing your site in your own browser in a 'Word' style environment, which means no waiting for your web developer to fit the work into their schedule and no website maintenance costs. Click here to visit a demonstration of this facility.
There are also many other technologies available such as Active Server Pages, MySQL databases and many more, so whatever the task there is usually an answer.
To get an idea of the costs involved in setting up a web site please think carefully what you want the site to do, how many pages it will need, menu style, do you want interactive pages, a shopping cart, the more information you can give us the more accurate a price we can quote. Bear in mind that all sites are individual and therefore prices do vary considerably from site to site. We consider ourselves to be very competitive with our pricing and do not hesitate in contacting us if you have any questions.
We also will give training to individuals if required, for example image editing, uploading your site onto the server. Contact us for more information.
