What is an Extranet?

An Extranet is a private part of a network that still has access to the internet. It only allows authorized users to access it.
For example, a hotel booking company may use an extranet to allow hotel owners across the country to log in and update their hotel's information.


What is an Intranet?

An intranet is not connected to the internet, it is only accessible to authorized users within an organization.

A school might use an intranet to display upcoming test dates, recent results or future events such as the Christmas quiz or summer disco. Only users logged into the school computers can access the intranet, it is not intended to be seen by anyone else.

What are dynamic web pages?

Dynamic web pages are generated when they are loaded and can appear different to different users.
