8 Reasons to Have Website Maintenance

You may be thinking “Now why do I need maintenance on my website”.

That is a good question if you do not understand the many ways a business website or blog can grind to a halt. Many people think that once your website is up and running there is not much more that needs to be done.

That is far from the truth in many ways

Think of website as a car that needs up-to-date maintenance. The oil needs to be changed every 3-5 thousand miles. The transmission needs to be checked every so often and topped off. How is the battery doing?

The car needs to be washed. When something goes wrong on the car you have to take it into a mechanic.

Websites works in much the same way only in a digital sense. But, unlike a car, you do not want your website to go down and then hunt for web designer to fix the problem especially if they do not know your website.
