Footstep Interiors is a leader in the furnishing industry which aims at developing the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). One of their major avenues where ICT is used is to share and disseminate information in their website about their products. Organizations that have put to use ICT tools are able to sell buy and market their services online which is enabled by their use of dynamic websites. However this is not the case with Footstep Interiors. The existing website is static i.e. it focuses on showing permanent information, where the navigator is limited on the amount of data he/she can access. The users cannot interact with this information without interacting with the visited web page; the users cannot place their order or buy their items on line, their suppliers have no contact on the way they can deliver requests online neither, can the users be able to support web applications, forums nor, make consultations on line. In view of the foregoing, this study was carried out with the aim of developing a frame work for a dynamic website for Footstep interior.
