Static Vs. Dynamic Website: What Is The Difference?

What is a website & what are its types?

A website is a collection of web pages and related content that is identified by a common domain name and published on web server. A website is of two different types, Static Website & Dynamic Website. Based on user needs and business demands you can go with a static or dynamic website.

About Static Website:

Generally a static website is made up of HTML , CSS and JavaScript codes. HTML is a code used to create pages and make them functional, which is designed to be displayed in a web browser. The code used to make them visually appealing is known as CSS, a simple mechanism of adding styles like font, color, spacing to the web document. Whereas JS (javascript) makes HTMl pages more dynamic and interactive.

Combinations of these pre-built codes are deployed on the server under a particular domain. Users can request respective URLs to call the website from a browser; based on the request the static website is loaded.

About Dynamic Website:

The websites which contain multiple web pages that are generated at the real time based on the user interaction with the system. These pages contain web scripting codes like PHP, JSP, ASP, Node and others. Dynamic websites are done with the combination of Client Side and the server side Scripting.

Client-Side scripting, involves code that is executed by the end user from the web browser, using scripting language like JS. This scripting is responsible for rendering changes to the webpage based on end user interaction.

Server-Side Scripting, the code that is executed by the server before sending to the end user’s browser. Based on these actions like login operation, payment gateway interaction, orders are placed, form submission and more. Dynamic pages on the other hand access information from the database. The websites that access information from the database are known as database driven websites.

These pages are designed with the webpage responsiveness, so that the end user can view on multiple modes of the system like mobile, Tab, desktop in different resolution modes. Personalised contents, social media integrations, dynamic visuals and animation can be interactively done at Dynamic websites.
