Static and dynamic websites
Static Websites: In this category, we have websites whose form and content remain unchanged. They are created using static files, usually based on HTML. Static pages are simple and load quickly on the user’s device. However, they cannot automatically change when the information they represent changes.
Dynamic Websites: These are websites where appearance or content can change dynamically. Dynamic websites can be used to present information that frequently changes, such as temperature, time, stock market data, etc. Such websites are created using dynamic server files. Dynamic websites have the ability to interact with the user (e.g., changing the appearance of a link when the mouse pointer hovers over it). Moreover, dynamic websites can include and display entire applications sent by the server in the form of active files.
Static websites are a more cost-effective solution for promoting a business on the internet. However, they lack flexibility as their content cannot be easily changed or customized since they do not rely on a database like dynamic websites do.
Specifically, the choice between static and dynamic websites depends on the nature of your business. Static websites are suitable for businesses looking for a simple online presence, typically including a homepage, company profile, services/products page, and contact information.
On the other hand, dynamic websites, while similar in appearance, offer greater flexibility due to their reliance on databases. They are managed through Content Management Systems (CMS) like Joomla or Drupal, allowing easy and quick online content modification.
