Dynamic Page

A page that is created by the web server from a template, or a general page structure, which is filled in with content pulled from a database. Servers “build” dynamic pages from particular components according to requests they receive from browsers.

The URLs of dynamic pages typically consist of the template name, followed by a question mark, followed by the content for the displayed page as a series of text strings separated by ampersands in the format parameter=parametervalue. For example, a page showing a blue Empire couch might be /product.asp?item=couch &type=Empire&color=blue. The parameters can be of great interest in web analytics, when shown as tabulated summaries of views of couches, Empire items, and blue items, or combinations of these.
