With dynamic websites the sky is the limits as the old saying goes and pretty much anything can be achieved.
Dynamic websites by their very nature can show certain information to certain people, they can show promotions for a given time period or have jazzy slide shows and photo galleries.
Dynamic websites are created using a CMS (Content management system). There are free "open source" CMS systems and commercial paid for CMS systems. Some may be better suited to certain types of activities but in general the market leading open source Content management systems should suite the needs of most website owners.
Benefits of a CMS based website
- Website content can be changed easily

- Shopping cart
- Message board
