Small business owners always have question which website should I choose. Their query is justified because of the fact that if you are not a professional developer than you will certainly get perplexed with this question. Selecting a website is a tough task because of the fact that when you are about to start developing your website, you come across different jargons like responsive website, CSS, HTML 5, static website, CMS based website, etc. These terms are pity confusing for the non-technical persons.
Before selecting a website, the very first question which should come in your mind is the requirement. Why you need a website? Whether you just want to have an online portfolio for your business or you want to sell from your online store? Will you want to change the content frequently? Do you have limited budget?
These questions will help you in properly selecting your website. Let us analyse both the technologies one by one.
Static Website: In static website, each web page is a separate physical file. Moreover, it has limited number of web pages. It doesn’t require any database. There is no server side script running. There are several advantage associated with these websites. The foremost is that the development & designing cost is quite low. These webs are highly recommended for the start-ups which have low budget. A simple HTML based programming can solve the purpose. Another advantage associated with these websites is that each of the webpage can be created in a creative manner. There is no limitation to the creativity of the designer. If the images, banners & other things are optimized then the website will load at very fast speed. The reason being no scripting language at the server side is involved.
There are few disadvantages also associated with these websites. The most important is that frequent update of content is not possible. In a long run, these websites can prove expensive as only technical person can deal with the changes and alteration.
CMS Websites: Content Management System supports template based websites. These have dynamic nature and require database from where the content is fetched. These websites are perfect for those business houses where frequent update in the content is required. The CMS provides complete control over the flow of the content and there is certainly no difficulty if the content need modification. Furthermore, to improve the functionality, there are too many plugins which provides high functionality and other things.
