HTML Website

Static HTML websites

Don’t dismiss a static HTML website as outdated and no longer useful

It might seem archaic to some to build a website using HTML these days.

There are many Content Management Systems that are supposed to make building a website “relatively easy” without knowing code.

Why go to the trouble of hand coding a HTML website?

Using HTML to create a website is relatively low budget compared to Content Management Systems. 

HTML websites are Reliable, Secure & Fast, but lack easy editing capability.

HTML is also a lot easier to maintain than a database type website, especially if it needs to be around for a long time.

HTML Vs CMS

A Fast website with No CMS loading lag

On one hand, we have a HTML website on the server. It won’t change, it’s always static. There’s no background processing going on. You request it, it appears.

On the other hand, we have a content management system driven website and a request for a page uses PHP and a database to “assemble” your website on the fly. PHP assembles the HTML and the database pulls in the content & the extra processing takes time.

PHP and a database introduces additional load time and delays which makes a HTML only website fast in comparison.

A HTML website an be completely customised so your site wont look like some overused free website template.

No database means fast execution of requests

Foundation Language

HTML is the foundation language for all webpages

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is used to create web pages.

Every single web page on the internet uses HTML.

HTML is not dead, it’s just not the modern, preferred method to create web pages.

HTML means manual coding of markup language opposed to pushing buttons to create a website.

Every single web page on the internet uses HTML.

Website Standards

There are standards for code

website standardsWith just plain HTML, we are directly working with the code & can produce valid HTML code, ensuring all code complies with W3C standards.

CMS have been known for generating less than acceptable HTML code. WordPress is better at producing code today than it used to be..

A HTML website that follows W3C standards provides compatibility across operating systems & browsers while requiring little to no ongoing maintenance.

HTML is low maintenance compared to the constant updating required for CMS to keep functioning and secure.

The “dynamic part” of website’s that requires occasional updating is usually the contact form.

This means a HTML website that was created 20 years ago will still work today. This is far from the scenario you will encounter using high maintenance CMS’s.

The low maintenance needs of HTML alone should be a good reason to use & taken into consideration for long term viability.

You don’t have to be a small business to take advantage of HTML website’s, but small & start up business should consider HTML to minimise ongoing costs.

Great if the main purpose of your website is to be found in search for information & as a contact point.
