Static web pages are extremely helpful those pages or contents which don’t require frequent changes or updations. There are ample of advantages linked with the static web page like they’re quick and a bit cheap to create and host.

A static site is a site which is written completely with the use of HTML language. Every web page is a different document and has no databases or any external files which are drawn upon. It means that for editing such type of website you have to go through each page and edit its HTML code for the necessary changes.  This can be done using webpage editor like Dreamweaver or FrontPage, or you can also ask your web developers to make update it.

Dynamic web site:

Dynamic web pages or sites are such types of web pages which shows up different contents to the viewer every time a user visits it.  It frequently gets modified depending on the accessing, time and interaction as performed by the users. There are two different kinds of dynamic web pages, namely— Client side scripting and server side scripting.

Such web pages have higher degree of functionality.

The pages of the dynamic site are produced from the data stored in the external file or database.
