Website maintenance is the act of regularly checking your website for issues and mistakes and keeping it updated and relevant:-
Keep updated: Content
- Check for broken links – nobody likes broken links. Nobody.
- Check site speed. A fast site is a good site.
- Track your site statistics. We set up Google Analytics on every site we build, but if you don’t check you don’t know.
Some hosts also offer discounts if you pay a year (or more) in advance. Prices vary from web host to web host.
Web Hosts essentially rent out space on their servers to users like you who want to start their own sites. Think of the internet as a huge continent divided into territories owned by different “countries,” or hosting companies. You only need one little plot of land to build a house, but to get that land you have to approach one of the land owners and buy a plot of space that resides in their territory.
Sure, you either own your plot of land or you rent it out yearly, but that doesn’t mean you own the entire territory. Just like moving into a neighborhood, there are rules you must follow as to what you’re allowed to do with your little plot. This can include content guidelines (some hosts won’t provide service to adult oriented websites, etc.), and all hosts require their clients to follow applicable laws and regulations of their respective countries. After all, just because you own the land your house is built on doesn’t mean you can set up a water park in the front yard!
