Static Websites and Their Importance in the Marketplace

A static website is the most basic and easy to design and create. Nowadays every small and big organization are using the static website to showcase their service and products.

A static website is built by using only HTML and CSS and does not involve scripting. We bring out few factors into light that explain the importance of having a static website.

  • Security When it comes to securing a static website is the safest and smartest option to consider as they do not depend on CMS plugins. The risk of getting hacked is less severe as the dynamic functions of the static websites are handled by API and Javascript.

  • Reliability Occasionally we must have come across an error message which states ‘the connection could not be established’. Such error mainly occurs because of database error. However, when there’d be an attack on the server, the static website is redirected to other closest node, unlike dynamic website where they will be down for few hours.

  • Speed Absence of the database can make static site acquire the speed and easy to load options. Another reason for its speedy attributes is that it can be served from the node closest to the browser.  Most users expect for a web page to load within 2 seconds, most of them never wait if the loading time takes longer period thus having a static website will also help in getting more traffic with less amount of abandonment rate which caused due to slow loading.

  • Hosting and price  As static websites have basic HTML files which require less space for making the hosting of these websites a lot cheaper. Business and organization with static website save a lot on costing and they can channel those resources to integrate git or automated build to incorporate the latest changes in the system.

  • Scalability Basic static website with HTML files can be easily scaled up by just increasing the bandwidth and does not require complex code playing on the server.
