Database Driven
A phrase used to describe a webpage or website who's content is stored in a database. A database driven site often has a content management system which allows direct manipulation of on-site content, without having to decipher confusing scripts or markup.

Database driven sites are often more advanced and dynamic than traditional static pages, taking advantage of the many varied data-manipulation options that databases offer.

For example, blogs are almost always database driven, allowing for on the fly creation of useful lists and features, such as 'recent posts' and 'related articles', as well as advanced search capabilities.

Directory
On the web, a directory is a listing of websites, grouped into categories. Directories are often human-edited, and offer an alternate to the robot-driven search engine approach to site discovery. Many people consider the pages found in a directory to be more relevant, and higher quality than search results found on search engines.

The challenge with a large web directory is having enough man power available to sort out submissions. Many directories decide to focus on one topic or niche, resulting in more focused and refined information for their visitors.

Domain Name
Technically, a domain name is a name that points to a specific server or network of servers, on the Internet. In practice, a domain is often the name used to visit a website, or send someone an email. CCSEO.com is the domain name for this website. Choosing a domain name for your website is a very important branding, usability, and marketing decision.

Drupal
A free and open-source CMS written in PHP. Drupal has a large community, a large plugin repository, and is the preferred development platform for many web developers. Drupal is often compared and contrasted with WordPress.
