What is web development?

Web development is the process of creating a website integrated with a database in the back-end providing content. Many of today's leading websites rely on databases so that the owners can easily add, modify or remove contents from the web pages. A website needs to be dynamic, that is, it needs to keep changing the contents regularly. By creating a web site that is database driven, we can ensure that the web pages can be easily updated. However, the level of interactivity of a website will be determined by the nature of the client. Some businesses may need basic catalog style of website whereas others might need an e-commerce style website.

Why should I opt for a website for my organization?

The Internet has changed the way organizations do business. Today more and more organizations are looking at Internet to reach out to their customers, to capture new markets and to remain competitive. Having a Web presence has become crucial in determining an organization's competitiveness. A website can be created for different purposes. It could be as simple as a product catalog to capture new business or it could be a full-fledged e-commerce site which can accept customer orders, track orders, accept payments, etc


What is a web application?
A web application is a program that runs on the web. A Web application accepts user input, processes the input, and displays the results. Web applications are usually created using technologies such as ASP, XML and databases.

Are web development and web design the same?
All web sites are created using web design techniques. Web development is done only used when a site needs to be interactive, and respond to users. Typical activities may be a shopping cart, order tracking, etc.

Why would I want web development or a database driven site?

If you want your website to be interactive, even in a small scale, a database-driven website is essential. Also, it is easier to update a database driven website. Frequent changes, additions or deletions can be easily made if your website is database-driven.

If you're planning on having your web site interact with the user in any way other than simply displaying your web page's information - Web programming handles everything from a simple feedback form to a complex e-commerce system

How long does it take to complete a website?

An average site of 5-10 pages would normally take 10-15 days. However, this depends on the complexity of the pages and also on the participation level of the customer. Hence, it is essential that the customer provides us with all requested information on a timely basis.
