Web pages are documents or information that are created in HTML format, these are adapted to the World Wide Web (WWW) and can be accessed through a browser. The set of linked web pages are known under the name of the website.

There are different ways to classify web pages, some criteria for this are:

According to its construction :

  1. Static: This type of web pages are made up of files that contain HTML code, it is through this that images, texts, videos and all those contents that make up the page itself can be displayed. The files that make up the website are stored on the hosting server, which format is also in HTML. Web pages can be edited through programs like Dreamweaver. For this, the files must be downloaded from the server with some software, edit them, save them and upload them again. The content of these pages is not constantly modified since they are usually in the hands of people who need to hire designers to take care of this, which implies a series of expenses. Also, constant updating is not something their owners need.
  2. Dynamics: on these pages, on the other hand, the contents are continuously modified since this remains in the hands of those who visit them. The information on these pages is stored in databases from which users extract what interests them. These pages are then characterized by being their users who modify the design and content, they can be updated very easily, since it is not necessary to enter the server for this. In addition, they have numerous functions such as forums, databases, dynamic content, shopping carts, among others.

According to their technology :

  1. In HTML: these pages are built with HTML language, so knowledge of this is required to make them. A flaw of these pages is that they are static, they also offer very little, so they are not recommended for sales and marketing. The advantage they offer is that they are very easy to build, with basic design skills, it achieves.
  2. In Flash: these pages are built using Adobe’s Flash software, which allows animations, effects, sounds, and movements to be made. In order for users to view them, it is necessary to have the required plug-ins. To do them, it is necessary to have in-depth knowledge of the software, another disadvantage is that the pages made with Flash are very heavy, so the download time can be prolonged.
  3. In server language: these are done in PHP, Ruby, ASP, among others. To develop this kind of pages it is also necessary to have advanced knowledge of the language to use. They are ideal for interacting with users and for the marketing area.
