Gatsby.js is an open-source framework that allows developers to build incredibly fast static websites and apps. A static site means that there is no rendering during runtime, no server-side code, no database, and so on. All the content is generated during the build time and served to users at a blazing speed, leading to the best user experience modern websites can offer. Besides, Gatsby.js is based on React, one of the most popular web development technologies, and this allows developers to reuse components and thus deliver products at the highest speed.
Gatsby.js is based on the JAMstack approach, hence why it comes with a full set of its benefits. Static websites serve you with pre-built pages; there is no interference with the back-end and thus no delays. Additionally, since there is no direct connection to the database, the areas for attack are significantly reduced, which provides maximum security against any type of injection. With Content Delivery Network (CDN), you can access global cloud servers and there is no limit for scaling for you.
If you have a static website, you are in a huge advance in terms of SEO. Blazing fast static sites developed with Gatsby.js allow Google’s bot to crawl easier, so it ranks you higher in return. Your rank position directly influences the amount of traffic you get, leading to its growth. Therefore, migration to Gatsby.js can help you get more traffic without even changing your website’s content.
Gatsby.js allows us to easily use any Content Management System (CMS) that has an Application Programming Interface (API) for the back-end. Our company highly recommends using Netlify CMS. It is an open-source CMS that serves as an all-in-one platform for automating modern web solutions. This CMS will provide you with all the necessary tools to easily and painlessly deploy and manage your website. What is more, Netlify provides free web hosting and gives you unlimited cPanel hosting.
