Some Sites are intended to be permanent fixtures which are always available, like your main Intranet page or your public-facing website. Some Sites are intended to be disposable, used only for a short time, such as a Site dedicated to a project or an event. In either case, you have the capability to move or delete Sites with ease.
As explained earlier, Sites can be manipulated. You can always manipulate various aspects of the Site should your org’s requirements change.
