Popular website builders and hosting services such as Yola, Weebly, and GoDaddy have simplified how websites can be designed and customized using visual building tools. While these services allow users to get up-and-running quickly with a nicely-designed website, many don’t include tools to add database functionality.
Database-driven applications such as web forms, searchable data listings, and password protection not only need a user interface for the front-end, but more importantly, require a database to be connected to the back-end for data management and storage. Traditionally, accomplishing the latter is possible through server-side programming such as PHP with the help from a web developer – which defies the whole purpose of using visual building tools in the first place.
Caspio provides a visual application builder for non-developers to create database applications without coding. Applications can be seamlessly embedded on your website no matter which service or hosting provider is powering the site. All you need to do is to copy-and-paste a snippet of Caspio’s deployment code where you want the application to appear on your page.
To demonstrate how easily you can embed a Caspio database application on any website, we have compiled a playlist of several videos showing different website services (Yola, WordPress, GoDaddy, Wix, Weebly, etc.).
These videos show how to create and embed a searchable contacts database, but you can build any type of database-driven application based on your specific requirements. Common examples include:
- Web forms for lead generation, inquiry collection, or feedback gathering
- Membership systems where users can register and manage their own profile
- SEO-friendly data listings such as business directories, service listings, or product catalogs
- Login interfaces that manage access to password-protected areas
