What is a static website?
Websites today are packed with engaging content and features, all of which need to be "fetched" and processed when a page loads so that the browser can display it properly. The more complex a site, the longer it takes to load.
A static website allows us to have the best of both worlds: sites with dynamic content as well as lightning fast page speeds. Even basic sites without dynamic content have increased performance and security when hosted as a static website.
Why is speed so important? Most internet users will leave a site if it takes longer than 2 seconds to load, regardless of how much their own internet connection might be causing the bottleneck. Slow pages = lost customers and clients.
Remarkably fast-loading and efficient pages due to small file sizes and pre-fetched content.
Just one server has to be running to deliver a static site, so they are consistent and reliable.
With their compact size and efficiency, hosting is very cheap and often free for static sites.
Static sites have no direct connection to databases, giving hackers fewer entry points to your data.
