Why are additions and edits to a CMS website often cheaper than with Static HTML websites?

Whats the difference?

  • Edits or additions to Static HTML websites are done through a code editor that requires you to update every file on the website upon each edit.
  • CMS websites allow you to create single files to control the appearance of pages, then dynamically inject content into these pages to rapidly create multiple different pages with an identical layout.

As an example, if you wanted to add a portfolio to your website, of say 6 projects including a projects summary page + 6 individual project pages.

  • To code in static HTML this would cost approx 7 x £40 per page = £280
  • To code in a CMS website costs approx £100 to create the templates then add 6x £10per page to create the portfolio items = £160
