Updated? As often as the information changes.

Redesigned? Anywhere from every few months to every few years or even
never. If your site is done in HTML 3.2 from 1997 then yes it's probably
time to rework it into something more modern. But if it was made two years
ago, with state of the art code for two years ago, you're probably okay
for quite a while.
