Difference Between Static and Dynamic Websites

Static Web Pages

It’s the most basic kind of website that’s coded in plain HTML with no custom coding and dynamic features. It requires no server-side scripting, only client-side such as HTML and CSS.

Dynamic Web Pages

Dynamic Web pages are capable of producing different content for different visitors from the same source code file. The website can display different content based on what operating system or browser the visitor is using, whether she is using a PC or a mobile device, or even the source that referred the visitor.

Static vs Dynamic Creation

Developers generally create static pages with HTML, but use languages like PHP, JavaScript, or ActionScript to create dynamic pages. They can also use frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Django, or Flex for dynamic pages. Dynamic languages and frameworks also have the technical capacity to create static Web page content. However, doing so creates source code that is unnecessarily complex for its purpose while being more difficult to maintain.
