I do something I call Dyna-Static.

I can run a static page off an Apache (or any wwwserver) instance. Just chuck files in /var/www/ where you want them.

Now where it gets interesting is I use Node-red to generate the pages; content and all. I want headers? It's a variable. I want ads? It's another variable Google provides. I want chat? Easy ( I can do it with nodered or 3rd party). I can bridge that webchat with my or someone else's IRC room.

Now, I can script it so the pages are updated from nod-red server to webserver. They can easily sit on the same box, as node-red takes few resources.

And the kicker is that I could get that done in an hour or so. Check out Node-Red . It really is that amazing.
