Q. Is it ok to use flash as part of the home page?
A. While animations are fascinating to children, they are not entirely effective to most adults especially those looking for business or services. If you are going to try to put animation in your site then it is best to also provide a link to a page that can be found on your site. In this way, you give your audience the choice of viewing the page or not. They will not be forced to which is a more preferable option. Flash components or animations do not necessarily help your site become search engine friendly so it is best to limit or carefully weigh the flash components in your website.

Q. Is a database necessary?
A. Databases are good for organizations that seek to provide or offer a comprehensive range of products or services to customers in the online platform.
