What is the difference between a dynamic and a static website?

 

2014-02-14

What is the difference between a dynamic and a static website?

Static Websites: A static site is a website that is written entirely using HTML. Each web page is a separate document and there are no databases or external files that are drawn upon.

This means that the only way to edit this type of website is to go into each page and edit the HTML. So you would have to do it yourself using a web page editor such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver, or pay your web developer to make updates for you.

Dynamic Websites: A dynamic website is written using more complex code — such as PHP or ASP — and has a greater degree of functionality. For instance, many dynamic websites can be controlled by a content management system. This means that you will potentially be able to make updates without needing any knowledge of HTML or any website software.

Each page of a dynamic website is generated from information stored in a database or external file. And the content management system that you may use to maintain your website directly modifies this stored information.

Which One to Choose, Static or Dynamic?

Consider both the purpose of your website and your own expertise and effort you want to put into upkeep. If you only have a few pages to manage that you do not anticipate updating much, using static web pages may be an easy and cost-effective solution for your website. However, if you plan to update frequently, such as for a blog, you may want to consider using a dynamic solution instead.
