Maintenance

The whole point to starting a business is to have customers, clients, or an audience. To drive traffic to your website, you’ll need to keep it regularly updated. Potential customers only spend a precious few seconds browsing your site before moving on. A stale or stagnant site will surely send your customers into the arms of a competitor.

The average Word Press website has over 5,000 individual files! Those files are constantly communicating with visitors and the server the website is hosted on. Internet service is not 100% up time. Think about how often your cell phone calls get dropped. The same thing happens on the internet. This causes a steady degradation in your website as files get corrupted due to service gaps.  Any website will eventually go down due to this data leakage. Unfortunately a simple backup will not fix the problem since backups are simply recent copies of a website that may already be severely corrupted. Installing a corrupted backup will stop working almost immediately. The ONLY solution is to identify the damaged files and replace them. This is a time consuming process but is the only real solution. A website reconstruction can easily take 8-10 hours and cost $500 or more.

Our job is simple: keep your website up-to-date, secure, up and running, and bug-free. Standard maintenance on your website keeps it looking great, and running fast as we monitor for up-time and performance including daily backup and hourly monitoring. We can also consult, plan and strategize with you based on what isn’t working well for your website from broken links to outdated content to make larger updates and even overhaul it as needed. Maintenance costs are included in the monthly hosting fee.
