As so many people now access the internet on their mobile devices such as mobile phones and tablets that Google enforces that all websites have to be mobile device friendly. What that means is, the page you view on your computer has to re-format itself to fit on the screen size of the mobile device you are viewing it on. Search engines prohibit separate websites for mobile devices (one for mobiles to other for computers) - the one website has to cater for all devices.
How it works is, the website senses what device you are viewing from (computer, tablet and type of phone) and re-arranges the page to view correctly on that device. Menus change for different devices - for computers you would see a normal main menu, but on a mobile phone where there is not a lot of viewable space, then menu changes to a ''tap to open'' type of menu to maximising the space.
Technically called Brochureware sites or static websites, these are an on-line version of the the old, printed ''Company Profile'' brochures.
Brochureware websites are generally the most economical way to give your company an on-line presence. Brochureware sites are usually an overview of what your company offers in terms of; services and/or products, and are best used when the information on the site is not updated frequently.

Database websites (dynamic websites) are the ideal choice for a websites that contain a large amount of information pages like a catalogue, that are frequently updated. Database websites are also ideal if you require a specialise application website, like a client portal or some form of booking or ordering system.
Database websites connect to a database to display the information on pages. The pages can react differently for different user’s - i.e. If a user was registered in your database they could see pricing on a page, whereas anybody else would not see pricing, though they are viewing the same page.
On-line Catalogues that contain a lot of content are ideally constructed as dynamic websites as the information can be easily updated, changed or deleted, especially when the dynamic website is coupled to a CMS.
How database (dynamic) pages work are; the web server receives a request for a selected page, the selected page is automatically retrieved from storage by the software on the server in response to the page request. A page may display the current state of a dialogue between users (like a forum), monitor a changing situation (prices linked to overseas currencies), provide information in some way personalised to the requirements of the individual user or write information back to the database - i.e. user's name and address details.
Ideograph’s database websites can be built to be scalable so that in the future if you want to migrate from a catalogue website to a full e-commerce website that can be done economically.
