Because you already have enough headaches.

As a business owner, you can probably find better, more profitable use your time running your business rather than trying to maintain your website.
Let us keep your website maintained and up to date while you concentrate on what you do best.

All websites need some maintenance varying from adding new pages or updating existing ones to more complicated things like database backups, CMS patching, and server security.

If you have an "old school" static HTML website, you need at least a basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and FTP to maintain your site. If any of these terms sound like a foreign language or gibberish, and you have no idea what to do, we can help. We have been designing and updating websites since 1995.

Content Management System Maintenance

Suppose your website uses a Content Management System like WordPress. In that case, minor editing is relatively simple, and you probably already take care of this yourself. We can provide WordPress training for basic content changes and updates if needed. However, more complicated administrative maintenance can be more challenging; we can help with this too.

WordPress is a fantastic web-publishing platform, but it does require routine updates to maintain top performance and ensure that your site stays secure. If you are using WordPress to power your website, then you need to do the following regularly:

  • Backup all files, including themes, content, and database files.
  • Scan your WordPress site for malware.
  • Update the WordPress core as updates become available.
  • Update vulnerable scripts.
  • Update themes and plug-ins as updates become available.
  • Review accounts and password security.
  • Optimize the MYSQL database at least twice a year.

Your website needs to have these basic tasks done regularly, weekly for low-traffic sites, and more frequently for higher-volume sites. In addition, more advanced maintenance and performance tuning are advisable for greater security and performance. Some of which may improve your search rank performance as well.

WordPress is a world-class web-publishing platform. But like any other tool, you must maintain it for peak performance and security.
