What is another term for development and maintenance of webpages?
Web Publishing is development and maintenance of web pages.
Basically, Building and developing a website requires time,
thought, resources and above all costs you money, but developing
the website is not the end of the story. Once your website is
developed and published online (made live on the internet), the
next thing you need to do is maintaining it, keeping the content
fresh for your visitors and updating it with new or additional
information. Keeping your site fresh encourages visitors to return
and spend time on your website. In turn, this helps achieve your
business goals. Poor maintenance is a sure way of losing visitors,
possibly for ever!!!
Maintenance generally means making sure that your website files,
scripts, program code, databases are always up and running.
However, maintenance also includes making updates, adding new
features, enhancements, bug fixing, changes to code or database to
make the pages load faster and so on. In a way just as you would
like to maintain your garden to keep it lively and attractive,
websites need to be maintained continuously to keep them
interesting and useful for people who browse them.
