Why You Should Start Using Static Website
1. Low Cost
Static websites have basic HTML files which require less space making the hosting of these websites cheaper to that of dynamic websites. Organizations with static website save up on the costs and channel those resources to integrate Git or automated builds to incorporate the latest changes in the system.
2. More Secure
As there’s no intermediary, i.e., the database involved, the threat of code injection is minimal for a static website. No plugins and dynamic software to host the website.
A report by WP WhiteSecurity states that about 70% of WordPress sites are at risk of getting hacked by malicious hackers because of lack of maintenance and upgrading. Ugh, scary.
3. Lightning Speed
The absence of middleman/database makes the static site much more speedy and easy to load. A static site is ten times faster than a dynamic site that is built with a CMS. Another reason for a static website to run faster is that it can be served from the node closest to the browser.
You must have occasionally come across an error message saying that, "The connection could not be established.’ This primarily occurs because of the database errors. Serving just basic HTML files makes it easier to host them anywhere with ease like on a CDN.
Hence, whenever there’d be an attack on the server, the static website is just redirected to other closest node, unlike its dynamic alternative where the website might go down for few hours.
