Should I launch a static or dynamic ecommerce web site?

Designing your ecommerce web site.

One of the first choices you will face when creating your ecommerce web site is whether the site should be static or dynamic. If you are working with less than 100 products on your e-store, the choice is generally static pages. However, if you are dealing with a multitude of products and don't want to enter the nightmare of creating a new page for each item, you may choose to make a dynamic web site. In short, a dynamic ecommerce web site is database driven. In the database is your full product suite which should be categorized. With a dynamic ecommerce web site, one page can pull up the details for virtually every product. Adding and removing products can be controlled by a single interface, and the time savings will really add up quickly. There are a ton of web and ecommerce management software packages, and chances are your ecommerce web host has one ready for you to use.
