Static vs Dynamic Web Page
A static web page is a web page that does not change with time automatically. Like for example I create a website that says when I was born. Maybe I have added a picture to it as well. Now this page is needs not change over time. In this case building a static web page is good enough. One thing before you go deeper – Static vs Dynamic Web pages is not an epic battle of history 😀
A dynamic web page is one that changes with time. For example a news website, any blog or weather service, or even Facebook are all examples of dynamic web pages.
What makes a web page static or dynamic?
Back in the early nineties when the web in this form first came into being, all sites were just text and some images thrown in. There was only HTML, some CSS and a few images. That was it.
Dynamic pages will change their look over time. For example the screenshot of say Facebook or Google will change from today to tomorrow. There will be new posts, pictures etc. But your blog’s contact page is not likely to change soon. That can be considered relatively ‘static’.
I hope this was easy to understand so that you could get a basic understanding about static and dynamic web pages.
