A dynamic website is usually hosted on a backend server and renders the content for a visitor as and when a visitor requests for it. It can dynamically return different content for different types of users.
A static web page is pre-built and then uploaded to static hosting so that all visitors see the same content. This means that a static website is fast to load, cheap to run, highly reliable and also more secure compared with a dynamic website.
WordPress sites run on PHP and require a PHP-compatible server to run. Static site hosting does not provide a PHP-compatible server so you cannot host a WordPress website as a static website. However, there are many tools on the web such as WP2Static which can convert a WordPress website into a compatible static website. You can then upload and host the converted site here.
It depends on the features you require your web page to have. A static website is perfect for simple web pages where the content does not change frequently and appears the same for all types of visitors. If your webpage needs to appear differently for different users you would need to dynamically render the web page on a server based on the type of user that visits your website. You can also divide a dynamic website into a static frontend and a dynamic backend which provides the web page with dynamic data.
