Website Maintenance – What is it?
A common question from clients is what is the purpose of the website maintenance.
Here is an idea of what it is and why is so important.
Changes to Your Website
If for example you need to change a phone number or update some sections of your website without a maintenance contract, you will have to hire a web developer who will charge you by the hour.
Updating Plugins and Integrations
The plugins and integrations that run on your website need to be constantly updated to improve functionality and reduce issues and errors. Missing these updates you may lose improved features and may cause parts of your website to fail which can result to website breaking.
Keeping your website secure is one of the most important parts of the site maintenance. Websites, especially those built on CMS like WordPress have a lot of updates. If your website is left with outdated systems, it is left vulnerable to hackers, malware and viruses.
As a business owner, having your website down means a potential loss of clients. If you get a website without support, any unexpected problems must be dealt with separately and billed separately. This means that you will need to contact your web developer to find out why the website is down or go in and troubleshoot the issue yourself.
Keeping Up with Best Practices
The internet change very often and new website features is required. For example, you may have heard that SSL has become a mandatory part of a browser and it can affect how people find and view your website. SSL is a powerful thing to have on your website but the installation is not so easy but if you have a maintenance contract this would be covered without extra charge.
