Website maintenance is an activity that is performed to keep a website running smoothly. It may be done on a regular basis, or scheduled as needed. In some cases, access to the website may be temporarily restricted while maintenance is performed, in which case a notice will be sent to users ahead of time to make them aware of the fact that the site will not be available during a specific time period on a particular day.
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 back-end 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.
Website maintenance can include adding, removing, or editing text and graphics, modifying you CMS, updating news events, uploading documents, and often emergency fixes.
