Website Maintenance is defined as updates and changes to your website, after the initial site build is complete, has been uploaded to the server, and final revisions have been made and approves. It is an activity which is designed to keep a website running smoothly.
One reason to perform Website Maintenance is to update. It is important to keep information up to date, and to make sure that the systems used to run the website are also current. Having the latest programs on the backend will keep the website more secure, in addition to allowing people to keep up with changes. It will also improve user experience on the site, which can be very valuable for sites which want to build and retain large user bases. If a site is going to be disabled while it is worked on, it may be put into maintenance mode. During this time, a notice appears on the site explaining that it is temporarily unavailable, ideally with a note stating when the site should be back. During maintenance mode, major website maintenance tasks can be performed without having to worry about keeping the site functional for users at the same time. The website maintenance can include everything from changing a content management system to installing new tools on the site.
