Website Maintenance

You’ve got the website built.

Now, protect that investment.

Let’s be honest, building a website isn’t necessarily cheap and the time and money that you have invested into your website is substantial. Once complete, your website will be one of your most valuable business assets. A website represents the face of your business and works 24/7 to provide info, create leads, facilitate connections, process e-commerce orders and more. You may not see it on the surface, but there are a number of moving parts that work together to make this all happen. If even one of those moving parts isn’t maintained, your website could break.

WordPress maintenance is crucial to ensure that your website runs smoothly and stays secure. WordPress is a dynamic platform that requires regular updates and maintenance to keep up with the latest security features and functionality improvements. Neglecting WordPress maintenance can result in security breaches, malware infections, slow loading speeds, and poor performance.

Regular maintenance tasks include updating WordPress core, themes, and plugins, backing up your website, optimizing your database, and monitoring your website for errors or broken links. By staying on top of these tasks, you can ensure that your website is always up-to-date, secure, and performing at its best, providing the best possible user experience for your visitors. We have our finger on the pulse of all these rapid changes, and our maintenance plan covers it all. Here’s a basic overview of the challenges websites face every day.

Shocking stats, we know.

Plugin Mania

There are over 59,000 free WordPress plugins to choose from and that list continues to grow! Collectively, these plugins have received over 1 billion downloads. We carefully vet and monitor only the best ones.

A WordPress Giant

It’s no joke that WordPress is popular and widely used. There are over 455 million WordPress sites in the world today, essentially 43% of all the websites on the internet are powered by WordPress making it a very large target for hackers.

Active Plugin Count

A typical website uses anywhere between 20-50 different plugins. These control everything from image optimization to submission forms. The quantity of active plugins makes our job much harder to troubleshoot.

Rapid Growth

WordPress is an open-source software project being maintained and developed by a community of volunteer developers from around the world. It’s constantly changing and evolving to keep up with the latest technologies and trends, meaning we have to ensure all your core tech & plugins are compatible around the clock.


Monthly Maintenance Plan

To ensure your website is up to date and running smoothly, we have a monthly maintenance plan that covers all the bases. What are the bases? We’ve broken it down for you.

WordPress Core & Plugins

WordPress is a powerful platform made up of core technology and extensions that work together and need to be compatible to run your website. Your WordPress hosting plan likely includes managed plugin updates, but due to the volume of moving parts on your website, it’s not uncommon for issues to arise between WordPress core and plugins. In the event there is a conflict our team will investigate and troubleshoot the issue. Additionally, if there is a major update we spin up a testing environment to ensure nothing breaks before we update your live site.

Website Theme & Template Code

Code is the building block for your website, and powers everything from your theme to the devices you view sites on. As devices and browsers upgrade, it’s important that code stays compatible. As we uncover known issues, our developers take the time to look into them.

WordPress Editor

Having the tools to make changes to your content is arguably one of the most important features of your website. There are many options but our team is constantly on the lookout to select editing tools that are both reliable and user friendly. It’s a balancing act of providing enough features while maintaining an easy-to-use interface. Our team researches and evaluates new editor tools as they become available. We also ensure the tools you’re currently using are appropriately maintained.

New Technology

If it’s new and exciting, we’re interested. Our team is always on the lookout for new technologies that elevate websites to the next level. If we think something new is going to benefit your business, we take the necessary R&D time to ensure it meets our standards. Even with the best technology, bugs and glitches happen. Fear not, our professionals know what to look for and are strategic in introducing new tech.

Security Threats & Vulnerabilities

Cyber crime is at all time high. Research suggests cyber attacks occur every 39 seconds, with 2,400 attacks on average per day. Security attacks cause irreparable damage to businesses, which can include being suspended or terminated by Google. Don’t wait to address security until it’s too late. Our maintenance plan prioritizes keeping your site running as expected and secure.
