WEBSITE MAINTENANCE SERVICES
Your website is today your most obvious and important public facing asset. You have an obligation to your clients, your business and yourself to keep it safe, functional and delivering content and results as originally intended. Regular website maintenance goes a long way towards meeting these objectives and should be factored into your website cost.
A website’s operation depends on resources from multiple vendors:
- web browsers e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge
- CMS e.g. WordPress, Joomla
- databases e.g. MYSQL
- plugins e.g. Woocommerce, Membership, Cache
- hosting e.g. PHP and more
These technology platforms and providers are constantly being updated, and though they may need each other, they are not necessarily always compatible at the same time. This can result in a website crash or a security vulnerability.
The onus is on you, the website owner, to keep your website up to date.
