When we talk of the internet and its component web pages, there are two different types of web pages out there- static websites and dynamic websites. Each of them has its own benefits and drawbacks. Here, today, we will take a look at static websites.
What is a static website?
A static website is comprised of web pages that have content that is fixed. HTML is used to code these pages and they appear the same to every customer, displaying the same information, so to say. Of the two, static websites are easier to create and they are the most basic form of websites. Static websites do not require any knowledge of web programming or database design skills. You could create a static website by publishing a few HTML pages and uploading them to a web server.
A static webpage has code that is fixed. Unless the webmaster manually changes or updates the site, the content does not change. For small websites, it is a good deal. But if it is a large site in question, it becomes very difficult to keep track of the thousands of web pages involved. Static sites with lots of pages are usually designed with templates which make it possible to update a lot of pages at one go. It also helps by providing a layout that is consistent throughout the website.
How much does a static website cost in India?
The cost for a static website in India is about 3000INR-5000INR and it can go up to as much as 100000INR. It can be seen as the more content you want to put into the static website, the more it will cost.
Advantages of a Static Website
- Security: Because they don’t rely on CMS plugins, static webpages are a good bet when it comes to security. As there is no involvement of databases, code injection threats are minimal.
- Reliability: Database errors like ‘the connection could not be established’ are minimal in the case of a static website because it is just serving HTML files that are basic in nature. If there is an attack on the server, the website is redirected to another node.
- Speed: Without a database involved, the static website is much easier to load. A static website is 10 times as fast as a dynamic website. About 50% of people expect the website to load in 2 seconds flat. In this regard, a static website draws more traffic.
- Price: It costs a lot less to build a static website and launch it online. The cheap price of static webpages finds favor with small businesses and individual websites
