The importance of Website Maintenance

Website Maintenance or as we call it – Care Plans, are required to ensure that you are making the most of your website. You have invested time and money on your brand and your website, now its time to make sure that you can concentrate on what really matters that is your sales and marketing, leave the worries of the day to maintenance and random small tasks to us.

A typical website contains either just information about your services or an eCommerce website sells actual products as an income generating source. Keeping your website regularly updated ensures that your content is up to date, relevant and matches your marketing & brand goals.

There are other benefits too which we have outlined below and yes, we can help you with all this:

Safety and Security

Information is now more valuable than virtually gold itself. In an extremely volatile environment securing your data is extremely important. The more your website gets traffic the higher it is susceptible to attacks. Your websites may be targeted for malware, data theft, and over a period of time you may even lose all access to your own website. What may even be worse is your client’s data being released into the public domain. Websites get hacked and are never recovered because generally business owners fail to update them or take backups.

Our care plans also include Uptime Monitoring to ensure that we can monitor your websites uptime. Sometimes servers need to be restarted for routine maintenance, or may be temporary outages and we can monitor this for you to ensure we can address any issues immediately.

Malware Removal

In the event your website does get hacked or infected, being on a care plan ensures that your website will get cleaned as soon as possible in the timeframe outlined in your care plan.

Regular Backups

Murphy’s Law – Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

It is best not to leave things to risk and it is important to ensure that you take regular backups of your website. Depending upon the type of website you have a monthly, weekly or daily backup would depend upon the amount of content changing daily or weekly. For example, brand websites would do quite well with a monthly backup as the content isn’t regularly changing, whereas an ecommerce website should have a daily backup as there are constant inflow of orders etc.

Regular Software Updates

Code is a dynamic thing, it keeps changing and needs to be regularly updated with the latest standards, protocols and security measures. Care plans helps in ensuring that your website Content Management System backend, and plugins/add-ons/theme etc are all up to date regularly with visual checks.

Speed & Performance

Specially if your website is dynamic constant performance checks and speed analysis will help ensuring that your website is loading quickly for your visitors. Core Web Vitals is becoming increasingly important and ensuring you are on a solid care plan will ensure that your website loads seamlessly and fast for your client.

Regular Developer Support & More

A good care plan is that that doesn’t stop giving, with developer support for an X number of hours a month you can be rest assured that there is someone on standby for any changes, edits and issues you may need help with.
