Static VS Dynamic Websites

What is meant by "Static website"? - A static website contains Web pages with fixed content. ... Static sites are the most basic type of website and are the easiest to create. Unlike dynamic websites, they do not require any Web programming or database design. A static site can be built by simply creating a few HTML pages and publishing them to a Web server.

What is meant by a "Dynamic Website"? - Dynamic websites contain Web pages that are generated in real-time. These pages include Web scripting code, such as PHP or ASP. When a dynamic page is accessed, the code within the page is parsed on the Web server and the resulting HTML is sent to the client's Web browser.

Static Website Examples

These are static websites because everyone will see the same when they go on it.

Dynamic Website Examples

These are dynamic websites because everyone will see different things. For example, on FaceBook you'll only see the pictures of your friends, not everyone has the same friends - therefore they'll see something else making it a dynamic website

How my TV show website could be both static AND dynamic for each user.

I could make it static on my shop page, because i want everyone to be able to see the same mercy.

To make it dynamic, i could have a login feature that'll allow the user to choose what's on the homepage for them. They could subscribe to the feed of their favourite games.
