Don’t want to have to edit your site? Then you may need a non-editable website, also known as a static website.
Whilst professional design or affordable website packages are best for most startups and small businesses, some don’t need that flexibility. Learning to use a Content Management System (CMS) just to get some basic information online can seem like a hassle, too.
So if your business doesn’t change much, and you don’t expect search engines to be a key traffic source, you may prefer a static site.
Why Choose A Static Website?
Small businesses often choose static websites for the wrong reasons. So let’s be clear on a few things:
- Static websites are not cheaper or easier to build than editable ones
- Customers and search engines prefer sites that are kept up to date
- Editable sites can support more powerful features
- I can help with edits on either type of site
In fact, the main benefit of static websites is that they can use simpler hosting. They also don’t need frequent backups or software updates to stay secure.
So if you really don’t think you’ll need to update your site much over time, these static website packages can help to keep monthly costs down. Otherwise, choose professional design to maximise flexibility, or an affordable website package for your best options on a limited budget.
