Website Maintenance Plan
A proactive website maintenance plan and site management services are often an afterthought for many businesses. Whoever is designated to take care of the website often does so without immediate access to technical support. The need for that support is often prompted by a crisis created by hackers, or a broken site due to out-of-date software. Employment of full time website maintenance staff / webmaster is often not cost-effective for medium-sized businesses.
The “do it yourself” approach to webmaster services can be a costly mistake when 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of other workloads (and skills deficit) generally means the site never achieves its full potential, and is usually out of date. That makes your site an inviting target for the nefarious members of the dark web.
We provide website maintenance packages for:
- A range of CMS-based Websites
- Static HTML Sites
- Forum, Blogs and Ecommerce Sites subject to an evaluation
A comprehensive Web Site Continuity & 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.
The average business owner usually does none of this because they are either blissfully unaware of the threats, or may not understand the technology, terminology and techniques involved.

- All sensible measures are in place to prevent a problem arising
- Should a problem arise, I will solve it at no additional cost
