The Port Web Design, a web design company located in Maine and NH will enable your business to reach your current clients, as well as prospective clients, keep track of your inventory, staff, customer’s account or even allow you to start a social network with friends, set up groups and profiles etc…. A database driven websiteDatabase Driven websites.

How can we do that you may ask?
By using database driven technology which will allow you to have an interactive and cognitive website.

One of the most common types of dynamic web pages is the database driven type. This means that you have a website that grabs information from a database and inserts that information into the web page each time it is loaded. If the information stored in the database changes, the web page connected to the database will also change accordingly (and automatically) without human intervention.

The Port Web Design uses MySQL – an open-source database solution used by millions of websites on the internet including Yahoo, Wikipedia, and Craigslist.

MySQL, coupled with PHP, an internet based dynamic programming language, and The Port Web Design’s web design skills, you too can have a website viewed and used by millions across the internet.

Databases are dynamic tools which are being used more and more every day. They are replacing flat files, especially Microsoft Word and Excel documents! More information can be stored in a database and it is easier to access later when needed. Using PHP we can link your database with the world!

Database driven websites are easy to use and administer. Once we are done with the development of your database, you have full control to administer, insert, delete and edit your database information. Our web design company offers Content Management System development which will allow you to manage your own website, edit any page, add or change images or products without any knowledge of HTML or PHP. As user friendly as a word document – if you know how to use Word you can manage your website.

Just simple fields and text area, photo upload and the database will do the rest. Customers view the front-end – the area of the website where your shopping cart, real estate listings or your client’s account… registration occurs. You then go in to the back-end administration section and approve, view, and administer what your customers or account holders have done . All of this information is stored on the back-end by our powerful database, which can pull millions of records in seconds!

But database driven websites are not just limited to real estate agents and online merchants! Databases can be used for online event registration, calendars, business directory, customer relationship management, staff management, website content management systems, and almost anything else you could imagine!

Are you worried about security? Online security is a very scary subject, but The Port Web Design has got it covered!

Using the latest Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which uses 128-bit encryption (versus 40-bit in most cases), your information, and more importantly your customer’s information, will be as safe as if you were talking to your customer in person or as you think they are in your file cabinet!

Online web applications and  database driven websites are becoming more and more popular, and many customers almost expect a dynamic website upon visiting your website. No matter what type of business you’re in, a database driven website could work for you and make your life so much easier!
