Yes, websites have to be maintained.
I’ll maintain your website so you can pay full attention to your business.
Website maintenance assures its health and safety.
Websites like anything else with lots of moving parts that change, need to fit together to work smoothly and can be influenced by outside forces must be maintained regularly.
Website maintenance that is not performed will increase its risk of hacking and may:
- be deleted
- be embedded with spammy & mischievous advertising
- be directed to another website with objectionable content
WordPress, an open-source platform, is maintained by a group of dedicated developers. Because WordPress is open-source, plugin developers are allowed to offer add-on features, some are free, some need to be bought. The combination of WordPress and the plugins has created a powerful combination that is used by millions of websites.
Here’s a partial list of “parts” that WordPress as well as most other open-source coding platforms need maintaining for.
- WordPress updates
- Plugin updates
- Daily off-site website backups
- Security monitoring
- Refreshing or adding new content
- Keyword position monitoring
- Assessment of website impact by changes in search engine algorithms
In addition to the above updating, websites sometimes need updating to changes prices, terms and conditions, product descriptions, deleting products and adding new products.
The above tasks are included in my maintenance plan.
