Projects may also use DHTML, PHP, SQL, Flash, JScripts, Cascading Style Sheets, Server Side Includes, etc. to make your web site more dynamic and interactive which will help to keep your customers coming back for more. Many web sites are also developed using a Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress, Drupal, ZenCart, phpBB and many more!
