The questions to ask…
#1 Who will be using your website?
The very first question that you need to ask has to do with who will be using your website. You need to know some of the requirements that you are expecting from the website. You may have to ask some questions from the end-users about what they are expecting from the website. This will now be documented and form the scope of your website. If you don’t have this requirement documented, you may discover that your website will not satisfy end-users at the end of the entire project.

If you do not have three tangible reasons why you need to create that website, it is very possible that you do not actually need that website. Also, asking these questions will allow you to know some of the vital features that should be included on that website.
#6 How are you planning to achieve it
Also, there is a need for you to plan how to achieve that objective. You should not just assume that you are going to achieve those objectives at the end of the day.

Therefore what will determine whether the maintenance will be done in-house or from an external source has to do with the amount you would like to spend on website maintenance.
