The Benefits of a Static Website

The websites of the next-generation are static websites.

They’re perfect for creating both simple brochure websites and more complex portals, like blogs and online shops.

Don’t be scared, you’ll find it easy to write content. The classic administration tools you’re used to are there, just like in dynamic websites.

I’d like to avoid some misunderstanding: a static website can host animations and can interact with visitors dynamically according to your needs. The words static and dynamic refer to how a website is built in its foundation; they don’t describe the characteristics of its contents.

Let’s see now why a static website could be the best choice.

1. Speed

Having a fast website makes the difference. Your potential clients will open the next result on Google with negative consequences for your brand when a page doesn’t load quickly enough.

Static websites are the fastest. Their pages load almost instantaneously and the navigation doesn’t lag.

2. Security

A static website is safer. There are fewer probabilities of finding bugs. Plus, hackers won’t have room to attack you and can’t gain access to your sensitive data.

3. Reduced costs

Managing and maintaining a static website costs less because its structure is simple and lean. We also have cost-effective solutions for publishing.

4. Optimized images

Your visitors will always see perfect photos from their smartphones, tablets and desktops. That’s because our static websites optimize their resolution automatically for all devices.

5. Versions

Have you deleted some pages by mistake? This is not a problem anymore because you can restore everything. Are you not happy with the latest changes you made? You can go back and start over.

A static website keeps a history of its evolution through time.

6. Easier maintenance

A static website is easier to maintain because it needs just a web server to work.

On the contrary, a dynamic website needs a web server, a back-end language generating pages for each and every visit and a database where is contents are saved.

7. Modularity

Attaching a database to save information collected from your visitors. Accepting payments as an e-commerce. Querying external web services. Connecting third party software like your ERP.

A static website is capable of performing a multitude of complex tasks.

8. Scalability

A static website will never lose its typical speed if the number of your visitors increases. The cloud will optimize it according to traffic variations.
