Website Maintenance Packages

Website Maintenance

Your website is a business asset that generates income. Just like physical assets (buildings, equipment, etc), your online asset needs regular attention – maintenance, repairs and security.

A website with out of date software lacks the latest security updates and has a higher risk of being corrupted and/or lost. When the website does not have a recent backup, the bad situation only gets worse.

Monthly website maintenance:

  • helps protect your site from unauthorised access
  • maintains a reliable backup
  • keeps your website running efficiently

With the latest tools for virus protection and security along with efficient manual processes for back-up, update and error checking, we will keep your online asset in top condition!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does website maintenance need to be done monthly? Can’t it be done once a year or something?

Software is being updated constantly to be more efficient and secure in the online world. If we update your software less regularly, your website is at high risk of being hacked.

Website hacks are common, they cause damage to your site and give access to the private data of your clients. A hacked website will cost much more to clean and fix than the monthly maintenance and it is likely to loose you business.

In a practical sense, when we update a website less often, far too many problems arise with the software updates and conflicts, making it overall more complex and time consuming to have your website back to working order.

What’s involved in website maintenance?

It depends in the package you choose but generally, we implement and monitor ongoing checks plus spend a number of hours each month working on your site.

For example, in package 2, we spend between 3-4 hours on your website every month to:
  1. Manually create and store a backup (so we have a current reliable backup of your website that can be retrieved at any time).
  2. Update all software to the latest versions, including. WordPress and all plugins.
  3. Do a basic visual check to ensure the website appears correctly after the updates.
  4. Test that your contact forms work correctly after the update.
  5. If needed, we will spend up to half an hour fixing small issues that arise.

What happens if my website is hacked?

If you have regular website maintenance performed on your website, it is less likely that the website will be hacked. This is because we monitor your website with specialist software plus the best security measures are in place in the latest versions of your software.

If your website is hacked, we have a reliable backup that we can reinstate – so the clean up is much faster.

If you do not have a up-to-date backup, your website will need hours of trouble shooting and cleaning to fix the issues. This is an time consuming and expensive process. While your website is being fixed it will not be accessible to your potential clients which can loose you business.
