What Is Dynamic Url

On my first day at Google, I asked one of the developers what was “static.” He answered, “Static is what you see.” I was surprised. I thought this was a universal answer but the developers assured me that they had implemented the HTTP protocol. They said they used that protocol to communicate with their web server in addition to putting in the information about the application. So I asked, “What is Dynamic URL?”

The developer explained that it was a DIVI field that Google uses. I was not clear on the difference between an HTML element and a DIVI field so I asked, “What is a DIVI field?” He clarified that the name is short for Dynamic Web Services Extension, which he explained was another name for a DIVI field. So, what is a DIVI field? Well, it is a DIV code containing a domain name (host) that the application can reference.

So, what is DIVI? It is a HTAccess extension (HTACC) that enables a web browser to run a programming language in HTML. Now, before you get too excited, remember that the programming language used in a HTAccess extension is called HTAccess. What’s that mean? Well, you can simply insert a JavaScript script into your HTML source code, run it from within your browser and have the information from the HTML source code that is transferred to your web server. That is how the data from the web page is translated into what is returned by the request. Once that is done, the application can run.
