Why Do I Need A Website Maintenance Plan?
Rank Higher With Google
Keeping a regularly maintained website is something Google likes to see, and it can help with ranking higher in the Google SERPs.
Smooth & Effective Performance
The importance of a website maintenance plan is similar to the periodic oil change & tire air-ups of your vehicle. Without a monthly maintenance check, things could go wrong, and a monthly maintenance plan is there to keep you safe and up to date with the ever-changing digital world.
Stay Up To Date With Technology
As you know, the tech industry is always changing. Updating your website to newly released technologies can help you stay on top of your game. Updates to your website are usually minor, but they’re important so that things don’t break and that the latest technology is always in use.

Reactive/ Proactive Support
All our plans come with access to our support, the difference between reactive and proactive is with proactive support we try to prevent issues before they happen by monitoring the site and checking in monthly. With reactive support we will fix issues as they happen and not look at the site unless there is an alert or a message from the client.
We will keep track of the website uptime and will be alerted if there are any issues or if your site goes down. Should that happen, we will respond quickly and investigate the technical configuration to resolve the problem and/or alert the owner.
With our website maintenance plan we will run daily security checks to confirm your site software is up-to- date and doesn’t contain a security flaw. Our check will identify suspicious files or reveal evidence of any tampering. We will restore a backup if your site has been attacked and patch any notabilities if anything is found.
Making copies of your website’s code ensures you can quickly recover if disaster strikes. This means all your recent content updates don’t need to be remade. We perform 90-day backups of your site and how often we perform these backups depends on the plan you have chosen. Daily backups are typically a good bet for most businesses but we recommend hourly backups for store owners (e-commerce sites) or any sites with user interactions.
We will perform updates to your site once a month to make sure your site is up to date and always running the newest software.
As an added layer to vulnerability patching, if your site has been hacked, we will do our best to undo any changes hackers have done to get your site working as it should, after restoring it with the latest backup.
Sometimes software updates can contradict your current setup and cause issues. From a list we’ll make of all your site features, we’ll conduct light testing to make sure everything is running 100% as it should after software updates are made.
We will make sure all images are correctly sized and compress any code that’s not optimal. We will also provide any recommendations to help make your site run as smoothly as possible.
All our plans come with basic server website hosting support for smaller business sites. Enterprise websites or sites with heavy traffic might need to upgrade to our next plan, or get a quote based on the specific bandwidth you need.
