In this new digital era, where websites nowadays, doesn’t only serve as an information basket but also as an identity, it is very critical that we choose the right strategy while making one. Keeping in mind, the navigation, user interface, proper information integration & backend creation. But what matters more than this is the basic foundation of the website- its type. It’s very critical to know what kind of website- static or a dynamic one; to be created before one actually starts developing it. So, lets delve into learning what is being static or dynamic & with advantage they come of their own.
A static website is a simple website coded in HTML language where the information behaves same for every page. The content here is stable and the user is fed to same kind of content behaviour; it more looks like a dynamic page. Whereas, dynamic websites are backend enabled ones where the content behaves as per need of the user. They are usually created with ASP. NET Nodej, PHP language and are not pre-built unlike static ones. What makes unique in their ways?
Static websites come with advantage of less time taken in creation, less loading time, enhanced security (They are not connected to any external database), but they do have drawback of having limited scalability, less efficient content management access because there is no dedicated CMS (content management system) attached to them.
On the other hand, for dynamic websites it’s a wide era of opportunities where the owner has the access to CMS to modify the content with a more interactive UI where they can place the product and their content as per their business needs. Though dynamic website comes with disadvantages of more development cost, more loading time & vulnerable to external threats as they are connected to external database & servers.
The perfect strategy which is being followed these days is the HYBRID one where both dynamic & static elements are put into the website as this integrated approach helps to eliminate the loopholes of each other. Additionally, this enhances the functionality & user response time of the website.
