Creating HTML site
It is accepted that only large companies with high financial resources need complex sites with many different information, and small business representatives can manage modest HTML pages. In reality, this is not true at all, and today, though large, though a small company can afford to create a site of varying levels of complexity: from simple information to complex corporate.
Until recently, the creation of an HTML site was the only opportunity for a small company to declare itself on the Internet, because sites of a more sophisticated level were simply inaccessible to the modest financial appetites of such companies. Today everything is different. Web sites are becoming more and more accessible every day, and now small businesses do not necessarily need to huddle on 5-10 HTML pages.
What exactly is an HTML site? This is usually referred to as sites that are only created using HTML hypertext markup language. In other words, an HTML site is a collection of specially marked pages. Such a site cannot process any data, it can only contain text and images.
The main advantage of a “pure” HTML site is always considered its low cost. Indeed, building an HTML site takes less time for developers and requires less resources than creating a more complex site. However, it should be noted that currently the disadvantages of HTML sites are far greater than the benefits.
Yes, HTML sites are called static, and they cannot make any changes without knowledge of web programming. As a result, any editing of the information contained on the site requires the intervention of specialists. This requires additional cost to the owners of such sites, making the final cost of building the site HTML less small.
In addition, nowadays, when the level of competition between different companies in one area of activity simply goes wild, the sites of these companies are also competing with each other. What about the competition of a static HTML site with 5-10 pages of a full-fledged website, created on the basis of modern CMS, which contains many interesting and useful information for the target audience?
Obviously, the “pure” HTML site today is much inferior to the sites dynamic, in which in addition to the HTML language, web scripting languages are also used. Dynamic sites have many more possibilities, in particular, they implement the principle of separation of design and content: the design of sites is created in the form of templates, and then in a special editor text pages are created, images, links are inserted.
As a result, any information on the dynamic site can easily be updated by the site owner himself or by any user assigned to them. For this purpose, dynamic sites are run on the basis of convenient content management systems – CMS. Using such systems is easy and simple to edit on site: it can be learned in a couple of hours.
Thus, the creation of HTML sites today is gradually giving way to the creation of sites on CMS – a more convenient and progressive way. CMS sites are easy to manage, quick to use (and that’s important!), They can be easily upgraded when needed. The choice of different CMS for the sites is now simply huge, and everyone will find for themselves a management system that meets its individual requirements for functionality and quality. CMS has both paid and free solutions.
