A website maintenance plan is an excellent way of keeping your website up to date and in perfect shape, while keeping your costs to a minimum. It is also a great way of ensuring you will be able to get help when you need it. A website is a dynamic piece of software running on a server. Aside from general updating, your site also requires regular scheduled maintenance to ensure your website’s availability and performance. Organisations need to save money where they can in order to improve services for members or to invest for growth. Unfortunately, what seems like a cost-saving choice for many organisations turns out to be a costly error.
The problem is often expressed like this: “Once our website is built…” or “As soon as we have our site developed, then…”. That reveals a critical misunderstanding about web development: Websites aren’t static, one-time developments. They are organic; they evolve; they grow and change with the needs of the organisation. A website is developed and built, but the process doesn’t stop there. Unfortunately, because of the misunderstanding about the lifecycle of a website, organisations think they save money by having a site developed and then left alone. However, thas decision actually costs more money in many cases.
Our maintenance plans are cost effective and can be tailored to your specific needs.
We can help
If your website was built by us, using the WordPress platform, then we can offer a fixed maintenance plan of just £49 per month.
With each WordPress update, a number of bugs are always fixed and a number of security holes are patched, effectively making it harder for anyone to break into your site.
Upgrading Theme Files
We keep your current theme (site design) updated to ensure it still works with advancing technologies of web browsers and mobile devices.
Upgrading Plugin Files
Plugin files are the tools that essentially make your website function. They require updates as technology evolves and security patches are released.
Updating Website Content
Change of service? No problem. Want to add a new post? No problem. We will make updates to your content for you.
Enforcing Security Policies
Content Security Policy (CSP) is a computer security standard introduced to prevent cross-site scripting (XSS), clickjacking and other code injection attacks resulting from execution of malicious content in the trusted web page context.
Site Modifications Included
Change parts of your website's appearance, structure and design.
Optimise Page Speed
Page speed is a measurement of how fast the content on your page loads.
The tables in MySQL (the database that WordPress uses) will, over time, become inefficient as data is added, removed, moved around.
Having a maintenance plan gives you peace of mind knowing your site is in good hands and well taken care of. Your site will be regularly checked, optimised and backed up. A programmer will be assigned to your website, becoming familiarised with it so as to ensure faster and more efficient updates are done when needed.
But Wordpress can update automatically?
Wordpress has an automatic update feature, however the plugins used on your website are not always kept as accurate as the main core. That means an update to Wordpress core can break your website overnight.
I have an SEO plan, do I need this?
Our 'Gold Tier' plan includes the 'Wordpress Advanced' maintenance plan as standard, so there is no need for an additional plan.
Is there a minimum contract length?
There isn't one! We believe our relationship and work will keep you with us, without having to tie you into a contract. Some of our customers have been with us for 10+ years.
