Website maintenance and support

Keeping your website secure and up to date

So your website is launched–happy days! Now, let’s make sure it stays up and running smoothly.

While some business owners enjoy maintaining their own website, it can be difficult and time consuming to troubleshoot issues and restore your site if something goes wrong. And unfortunately, WordPress’ popularity as the world’s most used content management system also means it’s particularly vulnerable to hackers if it’s not kept up to date. 

Think of your website like a car; it’s more cost-effective to keep up with maintenance tasks than to wait for a breakdown. Trusting professionals to take care of your website can help keep it running smoothly, so you can focus on running your business without worrying about website issues.

As a provider of ongoing maintenance and support for WordPress websites, I can take care of your site even if it was built by someone else. This allows you to focus on your business and customers while professionals keep your website secure, optimized, and up-to-date.
