Static websites

A static website is composed of HTML files for content and CSS files for styling.

The content stays as it was stored in HTML and does not change unless the file is changed.

Static sites are:

  • Very customizable in design since the content is basically static.
  • Technologically lightweight and simple.
  • Simpler to handle, fix and change.
  • Lighter and easier to transfer from one server to another.

It is best if you are looking for a "build-it-and-leave-it"site.

A static site can easily be upgraded to perform dynamic functions should you need to do so.
