It also provides hosting and web development for the Department of Defense.

But there seems to be no official account of all the websites for which he is responsible. The DMA website says that it is compatible with "more than 740 military and DoD websites," but Haverstick says it estimates that the DMA is responsible for "between 2,000 and 5,000" websites. These websites include the main sites for the different military branches, even blogs and sites for individual units. The service does not manage everything for the Department of Defense: some websites are hosted in public places.

Stars and Stripes notes that the WFD has faced budget cuts along with the rest of the Pentagon in recent years, and that "the agency is seeking to focus its mission and may seek to discharge responsibility for the infrastructure of the DOD public website ".
