Frequently asked questions
How important is site maintenance really?
Modern day websites are complex systems that are continuously updated and improved. New security vulnerabilities are discovered on an on-going basis. Site’s that aren’t updated become targets to hackers and often suffer from downtime, data theft, and viruses. Having to rebuild a site can often cost thousands of dollars and led to plenty of aggravation.
Thankfully, there’s a few best practices that can significantly limit the risk to your business. Keeping your site’s components up to date and tested for compatibility is an important part of that. Having an off-site backup can mean the difference between simply clicking restore and having to rebuild from scratch. So yes, it’s important.
Can I keep my site updated myself?
Yes, you certainly can. We’ll be glad to point you in the right direction and recommend tools for maintaining your site. Contact us for more details.
Why would I pay for Site Care then?
Good question. There’s two main reasons we offer the Site Care service:
The first is simply that modern websites are complicated systems. When issues arise, it helps to have an understanding of how the site operates to troubleshoot the problem in a timely fashion. That’s something we can help with.
The second reason is our overall approach to updates and security. Safety and reduancey are principles we live by. Not only do we understand the content of the updates, we understand the risks associated with installing them. Just because an update is available, doesn’t mean it will be compatable with your site. Let our decades of experience be your guide.
How often are updates performed?
Updates are run once per month. This includes a full site backup, core, theme and plugin updates. Typically this happens at the middle of each month.
