A website needs to be up & running at all times. In today's world, this means you need to be prepared for malicious attacks, possibly a DDoS attack, which is "an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users ... One common method of attack involves saturating the target machine with external communications requests, so much so that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered essentially unavailable".
