A static website operates by delivering pre-designed and pre-built web pages directly to users’ web browsers. When a user requests a page from a static website, the server sends the already prepared HTML and CSS files to the browser, which then interprets and displays the content. Since static websites don’t involve server-side processing or databases, the content remains fixed and unchanged for all users, unless manual updates are made to the underlying code. Any changes or modifications to the website’s content or layout require directly editing the HTML and CSS files. This simplicity and lack of dynamic elements contribute to fast loading times and straightforward functionality, making static websites suitable for displaying consistent information without the need for real-time interactions or database connections.
