Static Vs. Dynamic Websites — Which One Should You Choose?

by Cybernet NY A Digital Agency

Are you in the middle of having a website built for your business in Long Island, NY? If yes, you may have heard your web design and development team throw around the words 'static' and 'dynamic' quite a lot. You probably have no clue what they mean. Learn the differences between static and dynamic websites so you can make a more informed decision about which to use.

Static Websites

A static website is entirely written in HTML. Each page is a single document, and there are no databases or external files to be accessed. The only way to edit static websites is for your Long Island web developer to go into each page and manually edit the code.

Dynamic Website

Unlike static websites, dynamic websites are not written with HTML but a more complex code such as PHP, which gives it more functionality. These sites can be managed using a content management system (CMS) like WordPress, allowing clients to edit and update their websites themselves.

So, which one should you go with? Most businesses these days prefer dynamic websites since they can help lower the ongoing cost of website maintenance (because there is no need to hire a web developer or web designer in Long Island to make changes to the website). They also make data management incredibly efficient and allow for the installation of future add-ons (such as data feeds and an internal search function).

However, this is not to say that a static website is a relic of the past. Many businesses still choose this type of site because they cannot afford a dynamic site, do not have the time to learn complex coding, and do not worry too much about having control over their own content. At the end of the day, the choice is all yours.
