The difference between dynamic and static website?

If you may have little knowledge about a website or you may have already heard about dynamic and static website thrown around to you by your website designer, it is important to know the difference between the dynamic and static website so that you can determine the best solution for your website.

In simplest terms, static website pages are those with content that cannot change without a developer editing its source code, while dynamic website pages can display different content from the same source code. It is not important to having most advanced code on each of your pages when you go for using static or dynamic pages for parts of your company’s website. What is important is the purpose each page serves for your website.


Static Websites

There are fixed amount of pages and format can be included with static websites which deliver information to the clients. There are 110 changes in contents of the web page while a page is running on client’s browser. This kind of web sites created from HTML and CSS coding on a simple text editor like notepad. Example an organization site, Institute site etc.

The main noticeable thing is providing exact same information whenever anyone visits it. Static Website pages do not have to be simple plain text. The feature of this static website can be multimedia design and even videos. Although, when any visitor attempt to visit that pages visitor to that page will be greeted by the exact same text, multimedia design or video every time he visits the page. But when you change that page’s source code that page can be changed.

Dynamic Website Pages

Dynamic websites can change the web page contents dynamically while the page is running on client’s browser. This kind of websites uses server- side programming like PHP, ASP.NET., JSP etc. to modify page contents at the run time. Actually, for prepare this dynamic type design and importantly server side code (for handle event) Dynamic websites are used, it also manages session and cookies, and storing and retrieving data from the database. For example, Different govt. web site, E-commerce site, Social site, Media site, etc.

Dynamic Website pages are capable of producing different content for different visitors from the same source code file. The suitable things for this site are based on a various operating system, or browser the visitor is using it can display different content, whether she is using a PC or a mobile device, or even the source that referred the visitor. A dynamic Website page is not necessarily better than a static Website page. The two simply serve different purposes.

Dynamic Page Use

Dynamic pages can serve a variety of purposes. For submitting the material for the new page into the CMS’ database, maximum content creators actually use a gateway page. The advantage of this can then load the content for any page in the database, based on parameters in the URL with which a visitor requests the page. This type of pages is supported personalized content when individual long into that particular website in every time.

Static vs. Dynamic Creation

For creating a static page, developers generally use HTML but use languages like PHP, Javascript, or Action script to create dynamic pages. Here designer and developer use a certain work map (framework) such as- Ruby on Rails, PHP or Flex for dynamic pages. Dynamic languages and frameworks also have the technical capacity to create static Web page content. However, doing so creates source code that is unnecessarily complicated for its purpose while being harder to maintain.


Which Should You Choose?

For lots of benefit and effective performance many people actually prefer dynamic website. Dynamic websites reduce ongoing maintenance costs, make data management very efficient, and enable the addition of any future add-ons such as data feeds or a comprehensive site search. They also make it impossible to destroy the layout, as might happen if you edit it from a web page editor.
