Freshening the content with dynamic Web pages

Dynamic Web pages are built when a visitor comes to your site. That might sound a little strange, but it's true. When a visitor tries to view a page that is dynamic, requests for information are sent to the server. The server reacts to the request and assembles the pieces of the page as requested and delivers them to the visitor's browser as an HTML document.

The big difference between dynamic pages and static ones is that dynamic ones can react to your visitors. You can include scripts in parts of your code that help your site remember visitors when they return. The scripts assemble customized pages based on those visitors. A good example of this is the Amazon.com Web site. Each visitor's experience is customized to that person based on previous visits. This is accomplished by using a series of communications between the server and the user's browser.
