What is the Back-End of a website?


– What is a backend, the backend of your website or backend development? We’re gonna answer that
question for you now. If you haven’t watched
the other video already, we’ve got one on front-end development but essentially, there are
two sections to a website or two parts. You’ve got the front end
which is what everybody sees when they visit a website and you’ve got the backend and this is the engine that
works out all the information, puts it together so the
front end can look pretty with the right information. This comes from retail. If you walk into a shop, that’s the front end, but
what happens in the backend, the warehouse and the accounts department, that’s giving all the
information in the right format for that shop to be able to function, just like your website. So a backend website developer will talk in languages such as PHP, JavaScript, MySQL, and
essentially it’s grabbing a load of information from a database
or putting information in that database, sorting it, manipulating it, ready to go to the front
end to display graphs or just plain data or information. A typical brochure website won’t
have much backend going on, backend work and it’ll usually use a content management system which will take care of most of that work for it but then more detailed websites, dynamic, database-driven websites or e-commerce websites will
have a much higher need for backend development. A lot more work will go into that. So that hopefully answers your question what is backend development? If you haven’t, check out the other one about front-end development. If you’ve got any questions
you want us to answer, then get in touch with us and we’ll put together a video
just like this just for you. Thank you.
