Why you should develop with Jamstack

Jamstack websites are faster, safer, and less resource-intensive than traditional websites.

Peak loading times

Unlike classic hosting, static websites don't need the backend to render the site. The result? Near-instant loading.

Tighter security

Moving server functions to microservices reduces exposure to hacking and other threats.

Cost efficiency

Lower server-side computing demands mean you'll save money on servers.

Getting started with Jamstack

Build your first Jamstack site and host it with Deploy Now from IONOS.

Power static websites

Jamstack sets the new standard in website development by utilising the increased processing power of end devices and today's browser capabilities to bring static websites to life with JavaScript and APIs.

Jamstack also handles functions like payment services or user authentication via APIs instead of relying on server-side databases.

Minimise response times

With Jamstack, you can deploy static websites directly from the web server. This both minimises response times and reduces security risks by eliminating the need for error-prone or compromised source code.

Prerender for better UX

There's a static site generator now for just about every programming language. Generally, they work with a file structure that renders all the subsequent pages of a website in one go.

Unlike classic server-based websites that require scripts and databases, a static site generator doesn't require costly server queries.

This means your content loads faster and you improve the user experience.

Easy editing with a headless CMS

Using a headless CMS, Jamstack page content can be edited by just about anyone without editing or rewriting code.

Headless CMS work solely with the backend, and it isn't coupled to a particular output. Content is stored and delivered to the Jamstack website from the headless CMS via an API. The headless CMS also serves as a prerendering repository for the static site generator.
