Static websites deliver static information to the user i.e. the information does not change over time and remains in the same form as sent by the web server.

To get a better understanding of static content, think of a book that has printed material, which was set at the time of printing/publishing. The contents of the book will remain in its original form, no matter how much you read it.

All Pages Physically Exist in Static Websites

In a static website all the web pages exist physically, well not like you can touch them, but like digitally on the Hard drive. They are there whether you open them or not.

For example, let’s say a static website has 50 pages, then all 50 pages will exist on the server, whether some one loads them in their web browser or not. You can actually see those 50 pages on the web server the site is stored on.
