Static Website v/s Dynamic Website

Dynamic vs static, which website is best. Well, to be honest, not everyone needs a dynamic website and should read these next few sentences when considering which way to go

Dynamic websites are very powerful and easy for you, the client to use. dynamic websites allow you, the client, to edit your own content. However, the additional functionality of a dynamic website (CMS) also creates more variables that need to be considered when building and maintaining your website. These variables require extra work and make the design more expensive. If you are not planning to update the information on your website any more than three times a year.

For example, it’s not really worth investing the extra money in making the website dynamic. Another positive note about a static website is the ability to create richer, more eye catching templates. The design of custom templates is far more flexible using a static website rather than a dynamic site, although great strides are being made every day with regards to dynamic template design.

Dynamic (in the website sense of the word) means that the data or content can change 'dynamically'.

Dynamic websites are database driven which means the content is stored separate from the layout or template. When the user requests a web page, the layout and content are merged together and displayed, which is not the case with a static website. Your layout/template and your content become one using a static website and are not flexible.

Dynamic content like your text and images are fed from a database or Content Management System (CMS) so when the data is updated, the content on the website is also updated. This method opens up a lot of options for the flexibility and functionality of your website.

FEATURES OF A DYNAMIC WEBSITE:

Interactive Components - Interactive components allows the client or customer visiting your website to interact with things like discussion forums, polls, comments, user registration processes and newsletter subscriptions. Interactive components also give you the ability to have complex e-commerce based websites such as online storefronts, ticket and accommodation booking systems for hotels, etc. The list can go on and on. These interactive components mentioned here are only a few of the many things you can do with a dynamic website .

Image, banner and text management functionalities – enables clients to upload images, banners and text to the website without having to wait for their webmaster to update it for them. With Stevenson Illustration websites clients don’t have to purchase any special software or spend weeks or even months learning how to use it, as would be the case with a static website if you, the client, wanted to manage the content yourself. With Stevenson Illustration’s dynamic websites, clients can update their own content virtually from anywhere in the world where they can get online and login with minimal training.

Powerful query functionalities- Translated, means you can have a powerful ‘search’ tool, for instance, with more options to choose from than the typical ‘one’ item in your search box. For example, if you were a car dealer you could have multiple criteria to choose from to get one result. Year, Make, Model would give you all the results for vehicles that matched those three criteria. With a static website this is near to impossible to create. You can have a ‘search’ but there are normally no multiple options in the search form, only one.

Restrictive role based access.- It means you can allow users to have different levels of access to the website and have password protected pages. For instance, say you want your secretary to be the one to keep the website current. You want her to have to ability to upload images, change text, upload new text, etc. She would have a user access level that would allow that. Visitors to your site who wanted to login, however, would only be allowed to participate in a user discussion forum like comment on an article or view webpages designed for registered users only. They would not be allowed to make any changes to the website. All your visitor comments, etc. can be held for approval from you (if you wish) before they go live on the web sites are very powerful and easy for you, the client to use.

Flash Based Website

Flash-based websites have been a craze since the past few years, and as Macromedia compiles more and greater features into Flash, we can only predict there will be more and more flash sites around the Internet. However, Flash based sites have been disputed to be bloated and unnecessary. Where exactly do we draw the line? Here’s a simple breakdown.

The Advantages of Flash Websites:

Interactivity

Flash’s Action script opens up a vast field of possibilities. Programmers and designers have used Flash to create interactive features ranging from very lively feedback forms to attractive Flash-based games. This whole new level of interactivity will always leave visitors coming back for more.

A standardized website

Thru Flash, you do not have to worry about cross-browser compatibility. No more woes over how a certain CSS code displays differently in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. When you position your site elements in Flash, they will always appear as they are as long as the user has Flash Player installed.

Better expression through animation

In Flash, one can make use of its animating features to convey a message in a much more efficient and effective way. Flash is a lightweight option for animation because it is vector based (and hence smaller file sizes) as opposed to real “movie files” that are raster based and hence much larger in size.

The Dis-dvantages of Flash Websites:

The Flash player

People have to download the Flash player in advance before they can view Flash movies, so by using Flash your visitor range will decrease considerably because not everyone will be willing to download the Flash player just to view your site. You’ll also have to put in additional work in redirecting the user to the Flash download page if he or she doesn’t have the player installed.

Website search engine optimization

If your content was presented in Flash, most search engines wouldn’t be able to index your content. Hence, you will not be able to rank well in search engines and there will be less traffic heading to your site. Your search engine optimization efforts will also be wasted.

Loading time

Users have to wait longer than usual to load Flash content compared to regular text and images, and some visitors might just lose their patience and click the Back button. The longer your Flash takes to load, the more you risk losing visitors.

The best way to go is to use Flash only when you absolutely need the interactivity and motion that comes with it. Otherwise, use a mixture of Flash and HTML or use pure text if your site is purely to present simple textual and graphical information.
