What is a static website?

A static website or static site is a website made out of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, images, and other resources that are delivered to the user's web browser exactly as they are stored.

It's made up of fixed files that don't change unless someone manually updates them.

Static websites are good for for simpler websites that do not require frequent updates or dynamic content generation. They are often used for personal website, portfolios, landing pages, informational websites, or websites with content that doesn't change frequently.

Since static websites do not require server-side processing, they are usually easier to deploy and host, and they often load faster because there is no need to generate content dynamically.
