DATABASE DRIVEN VS CUSTOM CODED WEBSITES

Washington Graphic Services designs and writes content, and programs custom websites for businesses large and small. Often, custom coding a new website makes the most sense for our customers, but others require database-driven websites such as WordPress.
Some websites require a specific style and design that can only be achieved by custom design and coding. This process can take longer but the end result is only limited by the creative team and programmers.
One of the most common types of dynamic web pages is the database driven type. This means that you have a web page that grabs information from a database (the web page is connected to the database by programming), and inserts that information into the web page each time it is loaded.
If the information stored in the database changes, the web page connected to the database will also change accordingly (and automatically) without human intervention.
This is commonly seen on online banking sites where you can log in (by entering your user name and password) and check your bank account balance. Your bank account information is stored in a database and has been connected to the web page with programming, thus enabling you to see your banking information. Another plus to templates are that clients can see how it functions prior to programming and that can be a great sales tool.
