What is a Dynamic Website? A dynamic website is any website that is connected to some form of data source that allows content to change based on the information in that data source. The most common example of a dynamic website is an eCommerce site connected to a database. The information that customers see comes from a database that is constantly changing. Creating a dynamic website is a much more demanding process than creating its opposite, a static website. To change the content on a dynamic page one will usually log into the site and use on-line tools to add products or articles to the site.
What is a Static Website? A static website is the most primitive form of a web site and can only be changed by modifying the .html files that make up the website. Static websites can work very well for a company that does not have much information to present or does not require any eCommerce features or other elements that require a connection to a database. Static websites become difficult to maintain when frequent updates to content are required. If the website is going to present data that changes on a regular basis then the better option is to create a dynamic website.
