Website Maintenance Plans

Website maintenance / management is often an afterthought for many site owners. Usually, it is prompted by a crisis created by hackers, or a broken site due to out-of-date software. Employment of full time website maintenance staff is often beyond the reach of small-medium sized business.

So, you decide to “do it yourself” instead and that can be a costly mistake if something goes wrong. The combination of other workloads (and skills deficit) generally means the site never achieves its full potential, and is usually out of date…

  • A range of CMS-based Website Management

A comprehensive Web Site Maintenance plan should offer an array of measures to protect your valuable data from hackers and from loss. Think of it as pre-emptive Disaster Recovery Plan.
