Even the most well designed and implemented website is unlikely to continue remain useful without ongoing maintenance. If for no other reason than world will change around it, making some of its design choices no longer optimal, a website will become less functional over time, unless it is continually adapted to fit current circumstances. In reality no website is perfectly designed, or at least the software it relies upon will have some bugs, and over time these hidden issues are likely to emerge. For these reasons websites need continuing support, administration, upgrades and optimisation to keep them functioning over the long term.
Growth is another potential agent of degeneration for many websites. A website designed with only a relatively small amount of content in mind, is likely to become extremely unwieldy if it grows well beyond the size it was designed for. Just because the information is there "somewhere" may not be a lot of use if users are not provided with the tools to easily located it. Also if a website is rapidly adding new content it is likely that at some point that content will out grow its initial implementation, resulting in degradation in performance or even complete failure. A dynamic, fast growing system is in particular need of certain types of maintenance, such as performance optimisation and database maintenance.
