    Default Dynamic Database V's Standard HTML?

    What is the benefit of developing an internet site using a dynamic database as opposed to traditional html? I appreciate that updating is easier but the costs seem to far outweigh the benefits! Can anyone give me a pocket overview of "what&#039s in it for me?"

    When it comes to the cost of using a backend database to dynamically deliver content, there are many things that can be cheaply and efficiently done with a database that would be impossible or at least price prohibitive using plain HTML. Could you even conceive of how a site like Amazon.com or **** would be able to do business without a database to dynamically deliver content? How else would you track and display inventory, keep track of customers, report what items are frequently purchased along with the item you are currently viewing, make other selection recommendations, etc? It would be impossible without a database.<BR><BR>HTML can&#039t do ecommerce alone. Without ecommerce, no one is paying you to build their sites anyway, so you better learn some SQL, and you better like it!
