A static website, also known as a static web page, provides material that does not change over time. Everyone who visits the website sees the same thing. Meanwhile, a dynamic website or web page’s content changes based on the viewer, the time of day, the time zone, and the local language, among other factors. This means that a dynamic website changes frequently, almost on a daily basis, which is necessary to accommodate a wide range of needs.
In this article, we’ll share three benefits of developing a dynamic website.
1. Seamless Development
A dynamic website’s content can be updated using either client-side or server-side programming, or a combination of the two. The fundamental structure of these websites is HTML. Client-side or server-side scripting is used to manage the site’s internals.
Client-side HTML scripting allows data to be changed as the page is being created dynamically. As the scripts run on the server that hosts the page, the server-side scripting options specify how the page is built.
Using WordPress and other content management systems (CMS) can help you can develop a website without prior knowledge of HTML or programming. Following that, the user(s) can utilize an online editor to build pages and publish them through the CMS. To create a static website, the user must use an HTML editor and FTP to upload the page. This dramatically reduces system resource use. When compared to servers that provide dynamic web pages, static web pages use significantly fewer server resources.
2. Ease of Access to a Databases
A dynamic page must query a database or an external file to gather information. When you go to Google and do a search, for example, Google sends your search query to hundreds of computers and then combines the information from those systems to create a search result page.
Dynamic websites with regularly updated material make it easier and faster to find information online. A news organization, for example, may employ many reporters. Rather than relying on someone to alter a static HTML page each time a new story and page are presented, the organization can use scripts to automatically update the home page to include those articles.
3. Improved Site Loading Speeds
Because it does not require an external resource, a static HTML page loads faster than a dynamic server-side website. Server-side dynamic web pages necessitate a database or other file request, which increases load time dramatically.
For example, the majority of content management systems (CMS) allow for the creation of dynamic pages followed by the publication of a static page to improve page loading time.
A static HTML page can be accessed from any place because it does not require a database to function. A CDN, for example, can cache the web page over multiple servers located across the world.
Going Dynamic (Conclusion)
With today’s fast-paced environment, transitions are necessary. An example of this is shifting to a dynamic web page from a static website. At the same time, this is simply one of the things a business, a brand, or any entity must adapt to in these modern times. Thus, it is paramount to understand its importance and why we should all be knowledgeable about it.
