What is a Static Website
So what is a static website?
A static website is the simplest form of a website. Now just because it is simple does not mean it is not effective. Static websites simply serve a website's content in a basic HTML format without any extra bells and whistles such as user interaction with comments.
Static websites do NOT require any use of a database to display your website's content. This results in a faster website as compared to a dynamic website, which has to pull information from a database on your web host's server.
Pros of a Static Website:
- Load faster than dynamic websites.
- Minimizes server loads.
- Requires no database maintenance.
Cons of a Static Website:
- Limits user interaction.
- Requires some basic HTML programming and coding knowledge.
- FTP client is required to upload content.
