There’s much more to a website than parking it on a server and hosting.  Having an effective maintenance plan is required to manage the endless maintenance, technical and support issues. There are many moving parts in a website and changes in technology which causes a constant loop of technical errors and issues to be resolved. Sometimes the changes are so significant it cost less to rebuild on current technology platforms than to continue to provide ongoing life support/maintenance (you will learn about this in the refresh plan section below).
