Website Maintenance

Words describing Website Maintenance - Updates, Backups, Security, Monitoring, Staging, Restore, Offsite Backups, Hosting

Is your website regularly maintained?

Just like a car, your website needs routine maintenance to keep running smoothly!

Website Maintenance Overview

Why do you need website maintenance?

You have spent a lot of time and money on your website, and it looks great – so now you can move forward and forget about it? Unfortunately, not.

  • An out-of-date website can stop working
  • Old plugins might have a security hole, allowing hackers to get in and break your website or redirect it somewhere else
  • Your website might start running slow – discouraging visitors from staying on your site

Why pay for website maintenance when updating is just a click of a button?

That is true – it is easy to click those buttons and walk away – and that will sometimes work, and other times it will break your website.
The correct way to update WordPress, Themes and Plugins involves:

  • Backups
  • Testing updates on a staging site
  • Checking the site after updates 
  • If an update breaks the site, then knowing how to fix it

I also watch user groups and make sure that a plugin update is not breaking websites. On some non-critical major updates, I might wait a few weeks in case bugs need to be fixed.

What does a website maintenance plan include?

  • An initial health check of your website
  • Regularly updating the WordPress Core, Theme, and Plugins
  • Routine backups, saved in multiple location
  • Fast website hosting with a free SSL certificate
  • Depending on the plan, it might also include:
    • Discounted hourly rate for other work done on your website
    • Time each month to make changes and add content to your site
    • Terms and Conditions
    • Free malware removal
