Nowadays many websites are built using a Content Management System or CMS such as WordPress, Drupal or Joomla. They allow the user to manage all their content through nice administrator control screens, and PHP, ASP.NET, or whatever server side technology the CMS is built on, will magically and dynamically create the website pages every single time a visitor hits the page.
Building a website using a CMS is one of the many ways the Internet has become so powerful, since the old days when all websites were just a link or two and a flash banner. As a matter of fact, in 2015, 23.9% of the websites are made on WordPress, but using a CMS also involves having to deal with issues related to deployment, security, performance and maintenance.
However using a CMS is not the only way to create a website. Building them exclusively on HTML static files is still one of the most efficient methods of creating fast and secure websites that still conform a big portion of the 60.4% that are not using a CMS.
