Static HtmlHtml code that is produced once and served to all users. For example, a marketing offer that is produced by a web designer and uploaded to a web server.
Cached HtmlHtml code that is dynamically generated by an application server and then cached for all users for a period of time. For example, a weather report for a city that is dynamically generated and then cached as a static copy on a web server or content delivery network for an hour. This is done to reduce response times, computing costs and computing load.
Cascading Style SheetsCascading style sheets, or CSS, are files that describe how content is visually formatted. It is common for a dynamic website to include static CSS files that describe how the dynamic pages should look.
ImagesImages such as photos on a blog or a logo used as a graphical element of a web site template.
VideoVideos are usually static content. For example, a live streaming sports event may transcode video to multiple formats in near real time as a dynamic process. However, this is only done once for all users and uploaded as a static video file to a web server or content delivery network.
DocumentsDocuments such as a PDF file on a web site.
FontsIn many cases, a web page uses custom fonts that are downloaded with the page. These are typically static files.
