These days it is quite rare to find a web site that consists entirely of simple, static web pages. Typically most sites offer at least some degree of interactivity. There are many examples of interactivity, including forms for users to fill in, which email the data to the web site owner databases. These contain details of many products on offer.
Website users are also given the ability to upload files such as photos to the website. Other interactive features include shopping carts online, learning systems, communities and forums. If you’re looking to make your website more interactive, unlimited web hosting services can offer a full range of features and apps.
What features do unlimited web hosting plans offer?
All unlimited hosting UK accounts offer the ability to store static web pages. If you want interactivity, you need to ensure your host offers the right components. These are available to you through website scripting. Web site scripting means we offer you the ability to program your web pages to behave in certain ways.
How does scripting work?
Scripting is done using a programming language, and there are several common ones available for web programming including PHP, ASP.NET, Java, and Python. For example, let’s say you want to set up a bulletin board to allow your users to hold an online conversation amongst themselves. This would require a database to store all the messages, and the ability to send an email automatically to you when someone has added a new message so that you can review it. In this situation, we are using at least two components: a database and an email component. Storing and retrieving data and sending emails are all done via a special script that is embedded in your web page.
We offer support for several scripting languages including:
● Active Server Pages (ASP)
● Net (ASP.NET)
The latter two languages are from Microsoft, so if you have any familiarity with Microsoft languages such as Visual Basic, you will be at home here. Furthermore, .NET in fact supports many different languages such as C#, a variant of the C++ language. Most unlimited web hosting plans come with the ability to connect to a MySql database. Windows unlimited web hosting plans can usually connect to a Microsoft Access database, or even an Excel spreadsheet if you like!
What other apps are offered?
At Nirvaris we offer CPanel and Softaculous. We offer a fully featured CPanel, which has everything unlimited except for the disk space. We use Softaculous to help you download 300 plus PHP applications, like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Prestashop and Magento, with just a click of a button. These are content management systems (CMS) that offer a template used for creating a free website or blog. They allow users to create more interactive and engaging content online. Our unlimited web hosting plans offer you the opportunity to make your site more interactive. With unlimited hosting in the UK, you can really optimise your website and improve customer experience.
