Updating web pages dynamically
It is obvious, however, that the concept of dynamically driven websites predates the internet, and in fact HTML.
For example, in 1990, before general public use of the internet, a dynamically driven remotely accessed menu system was implemented by Susan Biddlecomb, who was Director of Computer Support of the USC Health Care system at the University of Southern California BBS on a 16 line TBBS system with TDBS add-on.database.
Such web pages use presentation technology called rich interfaced pages.
Client-side-scripting, server-side scripting, or a combination of these make for the dynamic web experience in a browser.
The introduction of Java Script (then known as Live Script) enabled the production of dynamic web pages Execusite introduced the first dynamic website solution for the professional marketplace in June 1997.
Execusite was acquired by Website Pros (now Web.com) in January 2000.
During the bust cycle of the Dot-com bubble, the original Execusite founders bought back the company from Website Pros (December 2000).
Execusite was later acquired by Wolters-Kluwer in December 2001 and was re-branded as CCH Site Builder.
Dynamic web pages are often cached when there are few or no changes expected and the page is anticipated to receive considerable amount of web traffic that would create slow load times for the server if it had to generate the pages on the fly for each request.
