So I have a question in hand regarding coding. I am building a social networking website for a project. I am dealing with html coding most of the time but as to what I learnt, it is not a solid structure nowadays. So is using just html code for log in page advisable or do I need to implement other languages in order to have a solid log in system?
Using HTML code for log in page advisable?
HTML is static and is used to create static web pages. The problem with HTML is that, it’s static (displays static information) and cannot create dynamic web pages. For you to design a login page, HTML alone may not be enough, since you need to connect to the database to retrieve login credentials and validate the same. You need a Server Scripting language like PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, JSP etc. The script is normally embedded in an HTML document which are requested by a web browser and executed on the Web server to create dynamic and interactive pages. The scripts can also connect to a database and retrieves information which can then be processed or displayed as HTML pages in a web browser. There are a number of Web Servers which can run such scripts e.g. Microsoft IIS Server, Apache Server etc.
