 Learn About Programming

HyperText Markup Language (HTML) displays text and graphics on the World Wide Web (WWW). HTML is a very simple programming language.

More sophisticated programming is used to make your web pages exciting and interactive. These programs can either run on the hosting computer or on the user's computer.

CGI stands for Common Gateway Interface. It is not a programming language but allows you to run a program written in a programming language, such as Visual Basic, Delphi, Perl, C, and C++, on the hosting computer.

Java™ is a programming language developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.. You can use it to run Applets (small programs) on the users computer. Java™ applets usually run faster than using CGI because you don't have to wait for the server to receive and send information.

C# .NET™ is the programming language we prefer, developed by Microsoft. It is the newest language and is over taking Java™, both in speed and usage. In our opinion it is easier and faster to program in than other languages.

For a good site you will probably need programming beyond HTML, some portions running on the user's computer and some running from the server.
