What is Web Design? 

Web Design is the process involved in creation of standard websites. A standard website has two major sides, namely: Front-End and Back-End

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee at CERN - The European Organization for Nuclear Research proposed to develop a project called: a global hypertext project, then it later became what we now know as: the World Wide Web - WWW. And between 1991 to 1993 the World Wide Web was in existence. The browsers at that time could read Text-only pages, one of them is called: simple line-mode browser. Later In 1993 Marc Andreessen and Eric Bina, created the Mosaic browser which was more advanced. 

Web Design Components: 

Web Design focuses more on the Front-end side which encompasses several aspects including:

1. Webpage Layout,

2. Content Production,

3. Element Placements and

4. Web Graphics.

The Back-End encompasses of:

1. Server-side Queries and

2. Database Management. 

The Front-End part of Websites are created using Web Graphics, a Markup Language called HTML - Hypertext Markup Language and XHTML - eXtensible Hypertext Markup Language. The elements within a webpage are typically defined using CSS - Cascading Style Sheet. The website behaviour and interactivity are defined by JS - Javascript.

In other words Web Graphics is for Images such as logo, banners, buttons etc, HTML is for content and layout, CSS is for element styling and JS is for defining page behaviour and user interactions. 

There are two major ways websites can be designed or created: It can be created:

1. Statically - Static Website

2. Dynamically - Dynamic Website

A Static website contains static HTML and CSS pages including images that are locally stored and presented by the browser each time they are requested by users. Static pages are created only once by the designer and are presented locally when requested by the user via the browser. The benefits of a static website is that they were simpler to host, and the servers hosting them only need to serve the static content once and not need to execute server-side scripts each time requested. This can help save load time and reduces server overloads. 

A Dynamic website is generated on the go or on the fly and fully uses server-side technology to generate and display the webpages. They basically extract their content from back-end databases, this is because dynamic pages or content are first stored in database tables and are presented by the browser when requested by users. Dynamic websites generally requires more server capacity, because each request by the user or browser requires a database connection but with the introduction of Web Caches and CDN - Content Delivery Network. Dynamic websites are sure to load even faster than you can imagine.
