Let me be more detailed. Suppose there is a dynamic website with a content management sytem e.g, a travel portal or an online book store and the content is created through a database and updated through a CMS which is handled by a team of Data entry operators and content writers.
Now the thing is there is no login or password that a user may see when he/she visits the website and that dynamic website will appear same as a static website to a normal visitor since there are no IDs and sessions created in the URL and there is no html or php which could be used to tell them apart.
How am I supposed to tell that one of them is static and the other is dynamic? Think of it as if you are answering a 5 years old...How do I know if a website is static or dynamic without getting into technicalities.
I am asking this because I am working with websites and web development for years but find it really hard to explain the difference to someone who doesn't have much technical knowledge about programming and languages.
