July 7, 2006, Newsletter Issue #52: Easy updates with a database driven website.

Tip of the Week

About database driven websites: One of the primary reasons to use a database design for your ecommerce store is that the data and presentation remain separated. In short, you can make as many modifications to your product line as you like without having to go through and edit each static page by hand. Database driven websites work off a template system, taking the shell of the HTML and pumping in the correct information from your web site database. The main reason you should consider database driven websites is speed...every change you make becomes instantaneously displayed on your website. You may need an ecommerce web hosting service that handles database hosting, but the charge is usually nominally higher and the benefits outweigh the capital invested.
