WEBSITE MAINTENANCE

Our Website Maintenance Service is all of the tasks involved in keeping your website “Up and Running.”

Most of our monthly Website Care fee goes towards this part of our services.

The software that runs our Web Servers and your website is constantly improved and fixed by developers.

When these software changes happen, we review the changes, then implement them into your “copy” of WordPress and ensure that your website continues to work as you intended.

  • Every website runs a lot of other software – called Plugins – that gives your website all those features that you love.
  • Plugins do all sorts of beautiful things for your website. Some plugins perform website security functions to help keep both you and your visitors safe.
  • Other plugins provide those easy-to-use Social Media buttons so that your visitors can easily share pages of your websites with their friends.
  • Still, other plugins help make your website pages open on your visitor’s computers, tablets, and mobile devices as fast as possible.

These are just a few of the reasons why your website needs our Website Maintenance Service.

FAQ

FAQ

What is “Website Maintenance”  is one of the most frequently asked questions we get.

“Website Maintenance” is the work related to keeping your website running as good (or better) than on the first day you launched it.

Every day that goes by, developers find “better ways to code” websites. They see “bugs” in their code that need fixing. The WordPress Core gets updated. Plugins get updated. Google, Safari, Explorer update their browser and change something in their code. Suddenly something on your website quits working or visually “looks weird,” and your web developer needs to go in and change your website to get everything working right. All of these things fall under what we call “Website Maintenance.”

What happens if you don’t have regular maintenance on your website? Nothing good. Your website “breaks,” and now your clients don’t see what you want them to see on your website. A broken website gives the impression of a “broken business.” You know what we mean. Do you want to go visit a business whose website looks “broken”? That business seems like they don’t care about their website. Maybe they won’t care much about their customers either?

Every website consists of millions of lines of software code.

The companies that write this code regularly update their code to fix bugs, add features, add security. 

The software used to build and run your website comes from dozens of companies.

Nearly every day, we get updates to the software running your website. We have to evaluate each update to be sure it works and, most importantly, “plays nice” with all the other software. 

Website Maintenance is a big part of our job running your website and accounts for most of the monthly Hosting, Maintenance, Security, and Support fees that you pay us.

Theoretically Yes. From a practical standpoint, No.

It takes a lot of skill to manage the Website Hosting Server and all of the software that makes up your site. It takes years of training to become competent. Even more, years to become a professional. 

Our clients should spend their time growing your business revenue than maintaining your website.

Page 404 is the web message for “Page Not Found.” 

A webpage not appearing is most often caused by a “broken link.

Hyperlinks are the URL the internet uses to find each of your web pages or the web pages of others that you have linked to in your blog posts or other web pages.

When anyone changes the URL to any web page, your website needs to be updated to reflect that change, or your visitors will get the dreaded Page 404 error screen..”

To uncover any Page 404 alerts, we run monthly broken link scans. If any Page 404 flags are found, they are immediately removed.

Each month we run a process that checks each of our client’s websites for these broken links and fix any broken links we find.

The WordPress Database contains all of the information related to the content of your website.

As time goes by, information inside the database becomes outdated. This is due to updates to both the text and images and the Plugins and WordPress software.

Every month, we run a process that checks your database for old, unneeded items and cleans them out. This makes your website run faster. Faster is always good for your Google Ranking.

WordPress is the CMS (Content Management System) that we use for our client websites.

To cost-effectively create all of the website features, we use software from several third-party software vendors. These software apps are generally referred to as “Plugins.” 

Each Plugin gets regular updates. Each time there is an update, we evaluate and install the update and ensure that your website still works as expected.

WordPress is the CMS (Content Management System) that we use for our client websites.

We do not use Website Themes that contain pre-made page layouts with images, text boxes, etcetera. We only build Full-Custom Website Designs.

However, to easily manage the colors and fonts used in our Full-Custom Website Designs, we use a simple Fonts & Colors Theme called “Hello.” 

The Hello Theme gets regular updates. Each time there is an update, we evaluate and install the update and ensure that your website still works as expected.

WordPress is the CMS (Content Management System) that we use for our client websites.

The CMS is what holds and manages all of the text and images. In more common terms, you can think of it as the database.

WordPress gets regular updates from the consortium of people and firms that create and manage the WordPress software. Each time there is an update, we evaluate and install the updates and ensure that your website still works as expected.

Our Website Maintenance covers maintaining the web server and all the software that runs your website.

Our Website Support covers the layout of your website, the website pages themselves. 1-2 simple changes (change text, images) are covered. More extensive changes (new pages, significant design changes) we quote on a per-job or hourly basis.
