WordPress websites and Static websites are different from one another. There are several things such as their base code, speed, technologies, different from each other. In this article, that is exactly what we are going to go through.

A WordPress website is something which is easier to manage, optimize, and develope because of the huge user-base and developers who come up with new ideas and dependencies such as the WordPress themes and plugins that make a webmaster’s job much easier. Implementing features and functions on a WordPress website is very easy using the readymade plugins or themes that come with all of them pre-packed. However, you will have to work within the limitations of the aforementioned themes of plugins because they are not made specifically for any WordPress website.

A Static website, on the other hand, is not that easy to manage especially for someone who just getting started with the websites and its functions. Implementing new features and functions would require a developer with pretty good knowledge about web programming languages such as HTML, CSS, Javascript, etc. That will cost the webmaster some good amount of money to implement and customize such features. But the plus point is that the functions will be developed specifically for the website thus making it much more feature-rich as per the requirements.

This is the outline of a WordPress and static website. But that’s not all, we are going to look deeper into both WordPress and Static websites and going to list all of their major differences. We will be discussing both the advantages and disadvantages of both to let you decide whether you should go for a WordPress website or a static one. Without further due, let’s directly dive into the differences between a Static and WordPress website.

WordPress Static
Easy to Manage: WordPress websites are very easy to manage because of their inbuilt functions to create and manage Posts, Pages, Comments, etc. using the WordPress Backend.Difficult for the beginners: Beginners may find managing Static websites a bit difficult because there is no interface available to easily manage Posts and Pages or any other functions of the site without editing individual pages manually.
Themes: WordPress comes with themes that users will be able to apply to their websites helping them to choose a website style quickly. There are free themes as well as premium themes available.No Themes: There are literally no themes available for a static website. Your website theme is the design you opt for. In order to change that, you will have to redo the design once again.
Plugins: WordPress comes with a lot of pre-built plugins that will add additional functions to the website. For example, adding a media gallery to a page can be done using a plugin easily.No Plugins: Just like the themes, the plugins are also missing on a static website. You will have to manually develop functions for a static website and make them work yourself.
