What is Jamstack?
The future of web hosting!
In its purest form, the idea of Jamstack is that a web application is pre-built into static pages, using content and code to generate the output. In basic terms, Jamstack is a significant shift in focus from the now abstractable back end to the now-powerful front end.
Why did I migrate to Jamstack?
Having lost entire contents of my previous site hosted using Wordpress due to sql injection attacks and legal notices from some banks for sending spam links from my domain (due to the malicious php codes injected during the attacks), the higher security offered through the Jamstack infrastructure was the major advantage.
Saving the site contents on a SQL database and retrieving and rendering the content everytime is absolutly unnecessary as there is no change in the content once it’s been created.
