A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11875104B2) outlines an innovative online website building system that allows users to customize both the front-end and back-end functionality of webpages. The system includes an online database storing website building elements and rules for accessing code, along with a processor enabling users to edit code and provide programmable events for dynamic back-end functionality. When a request is made to access a webpage, the system provides access to a virtualized execution instance containing the common server code and the edited user-editable code, ensuring efficient and customized webpage delivery.

Furthermore, the system can determine if the requested webpage is already hosted by a virtualized execution instance and, if not, add the edited code to one of these instances running the common server code. The patent also specifies various types of requests that can be handled, such as TCP, UDP, WebSocket, HTTP, or HTTPS requests. Additionally, the system supports indexable webpages, utilizes lightweight virtual machines, JavaScript engines, or Java virtual machines for execution instances, and can incorporate dashboard applications or widgets into webpages. The method outlined in the patent involves storing website building elements, enabling code editing for customized functionality, and providing access to virtualized execution instances in response to webpage requests, showcasing a comprehensive approach to online website development.
