Default What are static and dynamic websites?

There are many static websites on the Internet, you may not be able to tell immediately if it is a static or dynamic website, but the chances are, if the site looks basic and is for a smaller company, and simply delivers information without any bells and whistles, it could be a static website. Static websites can only really be updated by someone with a knowledge of website development. Static websites are the cheapest to develop and host, and many smaller companies still use these to get a web presence.

Dynamic sites on the other hand can be more expensive to develop initially, but the advantages are numerous. At a basic level, a dynamic website can give the website owner the ability to simply update and add new content to the site. For example, news and events could be posted to the site through a simple browser interface. Dynamic features of a site are only limited by imagination. Some examples of dynamic website features could be: content management system, e-commerce system, bulletin / discussion boards, intranet or extranet facilities, ability for clients or users to upload documents, ability for administrators or users to create content or add information to a site (dynamic publishing).

Dynamic website is normally a database driven where the contents are updated dynamically while in static it is not the case.

Static Web pages display the exact same information whenever anyone visits it. Static Web pages do not have to be simple plain text.

Dynamic Web pages are capable of producing different content for different visitors from the same source code file.

I only understand dynamic and dynamically Its too redundant and nothing to contribute but What else do you know? What do you mean in static that its not the case?

Static websites remain same. Pages won't update daily. Institute websites are static websites where are e-commerce sites are called dynamic sites.

In simple words
Static Webiste pages remain the same and doesnt change its interface even if viewed on any device i.e Android , tablet , pc

Dynamic Website pages changes according to the device configuration.

Basically, a static website is completely written using HTML. Each page of the static website is an individual file and there is no external files or a database that is drawn up. And is a dynamic website they are using a complex code like PHP and ASP and many dynamic sites are controlled by CMS. That means you can potentially capable of making updates without requiring any knowledge of HTML or any other website software.
