Most businesses have a running, functioning website. Often once the website is completed, it is not thought about again until one of two things happen. Either you want changes made to it or the site crashes. When a site crashes, you then have to contact a developer to diagnose and fix the problem, which is time your website is down, time you could be advertising, and possible money lost. What if you could prevent or lessen downtime? What if changes to your website could be done within a day or two and it was as easy as sending a quick email? No more worrying about getting quotes for every change that was needed.

What is Website Maintenance?

I think the first step in understanding why maintenance is needed is understanding exactly what maintenance is. Maintenance can vary from company to company, but it usually includes support, monitoring, security, updates, and backups. All of these features are preventative measures for the what-if day your website crashes. With ever-changing technology and hackers always trying new and inventive ways to hack your site, preventative measures are necessary for saving your website.

My WordPress Site is Only Six Months Old!

I know what you are thinking, how could a fairly new site have problems? My site was just built; it will be fine for a couple of years. WordPress updates are frequent and when updates are missed it leaves a site vulnerable. An out-of-date website is more likely to end up with viruses, malware, or plugin conflicts. Any of these could disable portions of a website or even bring the whole site down. This is why maintenance companies stress updates, but ensuring your update is safe and does not run into a plugin conflict can be difficult too.
