While many Drupal sites and site-builders focus on creating interactive sites where anonymous and authenticated users can interact with the content to varying degrees, there are still some environments and sites where a "static" version makes more sense for most of the public.
The main benefits are:
- more confidence that your site cannot be "hacked"
- in some cases performance improvement (since Drupal's dynamic features are removed).
There are at least three strategies to achieve this, which can be mixed/matched as appropriate.
