Static website is basically a website with fixed content, all the pages are coded using plain HTML, and optimised for the best performance. On the other hand, dynamic website is site that with manageable content, which involved a complex system with front end web and back end content management system, and also relation to database management, which are usually higher cost and not very responsive to performance, as each page load requires to loading data from the database, taking extra load and effort for the server.
Let's discover 3 of the reasons why static site is better than conventional/dynamic website:
