A static website has web pages with fixed content where each page displays the same information to every visitor. Static website pages contain fixed HTML code and the content of each page doesn’t change unless manually updated by the designer or webmaster. Static sites are the most basic type of website and are built by creating a few HTML pages and uploading them to a web server. This can work well for smaller websites or sites with a short life span and few content updates. However, for larger websites or ones where content is updated regularly, a dynamic website would be the preferred choice.
