Website Maintenance Packages

Why Care About Website Maintenance To Begin With?

First things first: Why is maintenance for WordPress sites such an important topic? If the platform is as refined as advertised, shouldn’t it be a set it and forget it? Do you have the time to invest into up keeping? Shouldn’t you be investing that time generating new prospects and leads?

Well, it’s important to remember that WordPress is a tool and just like every other tool it needs to be taken care of so it can perform at its best. WordPress is no different than the heating in your house. Without regular care, it won’t keep working at peak capacity.

10 REASONS YOU NEED WORDPRESS WEBSITE MAINTENANCE

1. Website Hosting

Every website needs a domain name and to be registered. We setup, manage, and renew your domain name as necessary to ensure your website remains online. Most individuals don’t know about DNS settings, CName records, MX records, WHOIS registration, SSL, etc., but we do and we are experts at it. This is why our clients Love Us as they leave these hard things in our hands to handle for them.

2. Website Security

Security is perhaps the most important reason why you should keep your WordPress website up to date. WordPress currently powers 75 million websites which equates to at least 27% of all websites in the world. WordPress is a popular target for hackers, malicious code distributors, data thieves and hackers. Since WordPress is open source, anyone can openly study the source code to either improve it or even worse, break into it which is every website owner worst nightmare.

3. Website Speed

WordPress developers are always trying to make things faster. Each new release comes with several performance improvements that makes WordPress run faster and more efficient. They also implement new fixes that correct holes in their source code (software) to prevent hackers from getting in your site with an open vulnerability.

Since speed is a huge factor in SEO, you should definitely keep your WordPress updated to ensure maximum performance benefits. Even one theme core or plug-in that is not updated will often slow down your website and may become unresponsive to your customers.

4. Customers Are Golden

Whether your WordPress website generates income, promotes your brand, you must provide your visitors with a professional image. But if you’re running an outdated version of WordPress your website could get glitchy or just not work at all.

Your visitors could encounter unexplained frustrations with your website. And you may never know about these problems until diminishing traffic sends up red flags. WordPress updates are continually solving user issues and by keeping current, you can prevent many technical issues before they arise to your visitors.

5. Updating Themes and Plugins

Updating the core of WordPress is important, but it is also important to update the themes and plugins you use, as a bug in one of these can affect your whole installation including speed, performance and security. At some point will break your site which will not only be bad for SEO will affect your bottom lines on sales.

6. Complete Backup of Website Files and Databases

The database, files and images which makes your website come alive are downloaded every month to a server and can be transferred to our secure cloud. If anything happens to your website host or to the website itself we’ve got a copy of your website safe, secure and ready to be reinstated at any time.

7. Complete Disaster Recovery


As you tentatively make changes to your website, do you ever worry you’ll break it? Theme and Plugin conflicts, wonky lines of code and hacking can all break your site. Not all plugins you add to your site are 100% bug free. Many reasons you might find a free plugin to do something you need and in a lot of cases these free plugins go stale and are not updated. If the worst happens we’ll reinstall your site from the last saved backup to keep your site live so visitors are not looking at a broken site.

8. Better Pricing Models

When you purchase a maintenance package for your website, you will qualify for a lower hourly rate. When you signup for one of our maintenance packages you save money. Everyone loves to save money but even more than that saves you time to focus on your business.

9. Search Engines and SEO

Website maintenance is critical to search-engine rankings. Websites with old content rank lower in search engine listings. Some search engines, including Google, check your page’s “if-modified-since” HTTP header to determine whether it is worth crawling. Failing to make frequent modifications could cause you to be pushed below active competitors in the listings and cost you business over time and eventually not even showing up in the top pages.

10. Long Term Cost Savings

If you keep your site maintained and updated regularly, there’s less chance of something going wrong. That potentially cost a lot of money to make right. A small monthly investment to make sure your site is secure and working properly, versus the possibility and cost of a complete site rebuild could be worst case scenario. Don't take that chance and have your site offline which not only effects SEO but worse losing sales.
