Static website vs Dynamic website
A static website is the one with fixed content coded in CSS and HTML. It displays uniform information to every visitor and doesn’t change with user interaction. Static websites have a fixed number of web pages unless they are changed manually.
A static website is delivered to the user exactly the way it is stored. When a server is requested on a web page, it delivers it to the client without doing any additional processing.
Static websites are the most basic form of websites and are easy to create without any need for database design and programming.
A website with less than 3 pages can be a static website. With hundreds of pages, it will be difficult to maintain, hence it needs to be dynamic instead. The only kind of interactions that happen on static websites are hyperlinks.
Examples of static websites: About us pages, landing pages, and brochure sites of a company website.
Dynamic websites are those sites that have information which can be changed according to visitors, time and other factors. Dynamic websites are interactive sites where users can create a profile, comment or do other actions. Most of the pages or sites you visit are Dynamic. Some pages in a dynamic website can be static until it is updated by the developed.
Examples of dynamic websites: E-commerce sites, blogs, Netflix, Amazon, Facebook, etc.

If you’re looking to build a landing page with information, a blog site or a brochure site that will not change much, then you need a static website.
On the other hand, if you want to provide content to a specific group of people or target audience, or provide an option for users to log in to your website, want to expand and grow your site with multiple pages, or if multiple people are going to alter the content, then you need a dynamic website.
Dynamic websites offer more possibilities than static ones but are more complex. So decide on the basis of what you expect from your website.
