Benefits of a Static Website for Artists, Bloggers & Business
Static Website Package
Our Static Website Packages have everything you need to get a professional-looking website that is very fast and secure. And, you won’t need to worry about paying excessive hosting fees or worrying about being hacked; this package is designed to give you the freedom to create something unique and personalized.
Fast & Secure
A static website cannot be beaten for security. Your new website will not only look great, but it wont be connected to any database, so there is literally “nothing to hack”.
When you cut out the database, websites become really fast. Big images can still slow it down, but having no calls to the database makes every page super fast
Your website can be hosted cheaply as well, so you only pay for the storage space you want. If you are really technical, you could probably do what we are offering for free.
Do you like to work for nothing? It can be easy to monetise your static website with ads, affiliate links and even by selling products and services.
Customer leads can come through contact forms and by displaying your contact information, such as email address, postal address and telephone number. Having good sales copy on your welcome page and comprehensive information on your “About” page can convince potential customers that you are the best choice for them.
Although Static Websites don’t have all the power of a dynamic WordPress website, you can convert your static website into a live WordPress website as your business grows.
Perfect Starter Website
A static website is the perfect solution for artists, bloggers and small business owners who need an affordable, reliable and secure way to showcase their work. With a static website, you will have complete control over the look and feel of your website, as well as greater flexibility to add features like contact forms, galleries, video, and more. Moreover, it is relatively easy to manage, even with no coding knowledge.
This type of website is ideal for businesses looking to make a big impression with minimal costs, as it does not require a database or server-side logic. A static website can be used to showcase artwork, launch a blog, or create a professional website that looks good on any device. It is also incredibly cost-effective, as it can be set up for as little as £20 a year.
Additionally, you can benefit from its enhanced security and increased performance, as well as improved search engine visibility. Furthermore, you’ll be able to make quick changes without having to rely on a web developer, enabling you to get the most out of your static website.

How does it work?
Static Website Package
Once we receive a witnessed statement, in blood, for your order, we will begin setting up your website. This, currently, takes 8- 24 hours. We will send you login info for your account where you can access your website and edit content.
Your main pages, such as home, about, contact & privacy statement will be already setup. You will need to edit the information to suit you or your business. You will be able to upload a logo & icon as well as other images & photos. This part of your website will be password protected and only visible to you.
When your site is ready to publish, we will generate a static version of your website which will be public and visible to everyone as well as search engines like Google & Bing etc. From then on, you can update your static website each time you edit or publish new content.
Much-better for SEO
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is essential for any web-based business. A static website can be much better for SEO than a dynamic website as it can be faster to load, easier for search engine spiders to crawl, and more stable than dynamic websites.
Successful websites need content and if it is written well, it will help potential customers find you in searches. You will need to log into your website to create posts to tell your story, describe products, or publish your news.
The WordPress editor makes this very easy. Your new website dashboard includes access to rich SEO tools that will help you write fresh content, which is favoured by Google and other search engines.
You can grow your website as fast or slow as you like. You will be able to buy more storage when you need it, or convert your website into a “Dynamic WordPress Website” if you want more functions.
If you decide to upgrade to a Dynamic Website in the future, we recommend Siteground for your website hosting.
