Which Type of Website?
The most important question to ask youself before building a website is: "What do I want to achieve?"
If you just want to have a company email address and a place where people can search you on Google, a static site may be best for you. If your content can fit on five pages and you don't have many updates during the year, a static "Brochure Site" is probably your best option.
If you have content that requires constant updating you may want a Content Management System. If you would like some of the modern features, like a blog or forum, you will need a CMS site. CMS sites also can be configured for many different uses. Ican use the same framework for a basic site or even a real estate listing site.
