Static Websites - The Definition and Advantages

A Static Website at it’s core are the simplest websites one could create. It has a metric ton of very favorable attributes. However, by far the most important thing for me is being able to author documents in Markdown within my favorite editor emacs or whatever I happen to be using at the time. This article will go over a number of reasons you may want to consider static websites for your web facing needs.

A couple slightly more extended static sites may include one of each: html, css and JavaScript files that will instruct your visitors browser what to display. You may also want to throw in a couple images.

What is so great about

  1. Simple to create
  2. Stay closer to original HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  3. Fast as it gets
  4. Really easy to host
  5. Inexpensive
