Database Driven Websites
Companies with many products or services find it easier to display them if they pull them from a database. We use the popular open source MySQL system. There are other advantages:
- It is simple to update the database so the website remains topical
- Customers can choose between a simple list or a detailed view
- It is easy to search the database
- Customers can sort the records in a variety of ways
- eCommerce can be added to a database
Records are seen by search engines so your website is not search compromised.
Your host (ISP) must use the Apache web server and support PHP (nearly all do) or alternatively, host your website with us.
Choosing a Host for your Website
For some time now, we have used Texo in Cape Town and currently have forty websites hosted by them. They always give excellent support and offer unparalleled value for money. They are a very small operation and take pride in their work like ourselves.
