Website Maintenance Services

Dynamic websites are made of many individual components that serve a specific purpose. Those components need to be regularly maintained and updated. 

Webmaster or website maintenance services make sure that your website gets regular updates and backups. They also deal with most issues and conflicts that appear after a series of updates.

WordPress Webmaster Services

WordPress is the leading CMS or content management system. It is very popular because it gives SMBs access to tens of thousands free and paid themes and plugins.

Those themes and plugins enable advanced website features such as setting a different delivery rate based on distance for local restaurants. Features that would cost thousands in development and maintenance fees if they were designed from scratch.

However, those themes and plugins get regular updates:

  • to remove coding bugs
  • to add features
  • to make them more secure
  • to keep up with best practices and search engine requirements

Updating them sometimes results in conflicts or errors that might break your website or, even worse, make it vulnerable to hacking attacks.

Website Maintenace FAQ

What Is Not Covered By The Webmaster Services?

Website management services do not cover the following:

  • subscriptions or renewal fees for themes and plugins
  • custom development work. If you need themes or plugins customized outside of their normal features, we can help you do that, but not as part of the website management services
  • support for abandoned theme or plugins or for expired items. Sometimes developers abandon their premium themes or plugins. We cannot support those themes or plugins as it would mean a lot of development work. What we can do for you is search for a replacement (usually at a low cost) and implement it (at no additional cost, if the implementation is not too complex)
  • catastrophic failures or an Act of God

All of the situation above are not something that can happen on a daily or even monthly basis. Some of them are very unlikely to happen. If anything is outside of the scope of our services, we will let you know before we do anything and work with you to find a good solution.
