In this example , a static website is displayed, however, there is a tremendous amount of custom scripting “behind the scenes” that makes this type of website work.  This websites pages when interacted with produce ever-changing information, producing real-time changes and style elements.  Although this is still considered a “static” website, it would be better classified as a “dynamic” website.

“Dynamic” simply refers to that which is generated in real time.  Though a website can have “static appearing” elements, does not mean a website is not dynamic.  Because dynamic websites entail pages to produce information in real-time, Web scripting codes such as PHP or ASP are often used.  When a dynamic page is accessed, the code within the page is parsed on the Web server and the resulting HTML is then sent to the Web browser.
