Thanks for making the right choice to go static. I believe that 98% of WordPress sites should be hosted statically. I created this plugin in 2011, when I was doing WordPress consulting for clients. I moved away from WordPress and into larger custom web development frameworks. Unfortunately, this allowed WordPress hosting to get out of control, with high prices and low performance being common place.
I have been modernizing WP2Static in recent years, because the solution to WordPress’s security and performance problems is now more important than ever. See the resources below to hear other reasons I think static will make the web a better place.
