Web Development Technologies
D4 Internet develops custom made web sites and web applications. ASP.net – Microsoft SQL Server is our application server of choice, and we use the Content Management System DotNetNuke as the core of our development work, including Telerik® User Interface (UI) components for ASP.NET.We also provide very flexible hosting facilities, tailor made to our customer's needs.  In this way we are able to rapidly deploy fully featured dynamic sites, as we handle the whole process of building a site, from domain name registration till the moment the site goes live.

The following is a guide to some of the main web technologies we use to develop accessible, W3C standards-compliant web sites. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

Client-Side Technologies

XHTML is a markup language designed to structure information for presentation as web pages. Rather than relying on WYSIWYG programs, we write all our XHTML by hand, ensuring that it is clean, valid and of the highest standard. This means that pages have fastest download times possible, are viewable on all browsers, are search engine friendly, and have maximum forward compatibility.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
Cascading Style Sheets control how web pages are displayed in the browser, and allow the separation of presentation from structure and content. CSS help ensure that web pages are presented in an accessible way to all visitors, over a wide range of media.

JavaScript/ECMA Script (JS)
JavaScript is a lightweight scripting technology which is used alongside XHTML documents to make websites more interactive.

Server-Side Technologies

Microsoft ASP.NET is a free technology that allows programmers to create dynamic web applications. ASP.NET can be used to create anything from small, personal websites through to large, enterprise-class web applications.

PHP is a fast, server-side scripting language that is used to create interactive, dynamic web sites. It is particularly well-suited to integrating with a range of databases.

Perl is a programming language that can handle input and output from a Web Server, usually through the Common Gateway Interface. It is most commonly used to process information through forms.

XML is a software and hardware independent markup language designed for describing and transmitting information. It is set to become the most common tool for all data manipulation and data transmission. XSL is a language for defining, transforming and formatting XML documents.

SQL Server
Microsoft SQL Server is a relational model database server produced by Microsoft. Its primary query languages are T-SQL and ANSI SQL.). It is perfect for most websites that need database functionality, and works hand-in-hand with ASP.net

MySQL is a fast, open-source Relational Database Management System that uses the popular Structured Query Language (SQL). It is perfect for most websites that need database functionality, and works hand-in-hand with PHP.

PostgreSQL is a more sophisticated open-source Relational Database Management System. It is well-suited to sites that require robust database functionality, such as e-commerce sites.

Windows Server
Windows Server is a brand name for server operating systems released by Microsoft Corporation. This operating system and Internet Information Services (IIS) is the most used by enterprises.
Together they provide a fast, extremely reliable, secure platform for web sites.

Linux is a popular open-source operating system, and Apache is the most widely-used web server on the Internet. Together they provide a fast, extremely reliable, secure platform for web sites.

SSL/Secure Servers
Unlike normal web servers, secure servers ensure that information exchanged between the visitor and the web site cannot be viewed by any third parties. A secure server is essential when handling confidential information, such as online credit card transactions or personal medical details. SSL, or Secure Socket Layer, is one method of exchanging data securely.


Macromedia Flash
Flash is a product designed to provide web sites with animation, sound, interactivity and database integration. A free plugin, which also ships with the major web browsers, is needed to see the Flash parts of a site. Flash can create a truly multimedia web site, but has certain disadvantages, and is therefore best used sparingly.

Microsoft Silverlight
Microsoft Silverlight is a programmable web browser plugin that enables features such as animation, vector graphics and audio-video playback which characterize rich Internet applications. Version 2.0, released in October 2008, brought additional interactivity features and support for .NET languages and development tools.

We also have experience with a range of other technologies, including ASP, Microsoft Access, SSI and Macromedia Shockwave/Director.

If you require any specialised services that we feel are outside our capabilities, then we will be happy to arrange and supervise suitably qualified contractors. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.
