As the name would suggest the content of a static website hardly ever changes.
A static website while still a viable option it does mean the web designer will need to change your website for you. This may be ok if you have no interest in adding content to your own website.
Static websites are stored on the "server" (the computer connected to the internet that serves your web page to your audience) as individual files so if you have 50 pages of information you will have at least 50 different files to manipulate.
The benefits of a static website:-
- Can be cheaper to create.
- Can be totally bespoke.
- Ideal for simple information sites.
- Fantastic for landing pages
- Will be fast at loading
Pitfalls of a static website
- Content changes infrequently.
- Totally bespoke sites can take longer to produce and go live.
- The web designer has to change everything.
- Changes to one page may mean changing every page individually.
- Adding new features can be costly.
