The pages of a static website are made with a fixed code. If a website is needed like a notice board to display information, a static website would serve the purpose, cheaply too. Hyperlinks may exist, but no other form of interactivity would be supported. Short websites of 2 or 3 pages would be possible with a static website. If something like a logo is to be repeated, the HTML needs to be duplicated on each page.
We can design simple static websites to display certain information though they are getting outdated. When nothing complex is required, static websites would do and function like notice boards.
