Running a site involves staying on top of updates, keeping backups, managing security and core functionality. For many clients this represents a responsibility which they would rather not be burdened with. The aim of a maintenance package is to keep your site secure, up to date and running as smoothly as possible so that you can concentrate on your projects with confidence.

I work with a number of clients for whom it makes sense to take advantage of one or more of the following services, and I am pleased to be able to offer various maintenance packages – including hosting and server management – for sites once they are built.

Site Maintenance

[Ma.]

From £48.00/month

Once a site is built, keeping it properly maintained is vital to its optimal performance. Core files regularly need updating, as do many of the plugins sites often rely on. Keeping these files up to date affects both the performance and the security of your site, but can occasionally create conflicts with existing code which need ironing out.

As browsers develop, certain options for display and functionality become available and older ways of doing things seem less effective. No matter how careful you are, sites can be subject to hacking and infiltration, which can create serious problems if not identified and dealt with quickly.

I offer some basic packages (see below) but am happy to discuss specific needs. Please contact me with any questions.

Hosting

[Ho.]

From £48.00/year

Small, individual hosting packages can work really well but are often subject to limitations in bandwidth, storage space and speed. Hosting via a larger account can lift these limits and greatly increase the performance of your site.

Keeping your hosting in-house relieves you of the responsibility to maintain your hosting account, login details and server security. It also keeps you out of support threads between your developer and hosting provider if something does go wrong, and often means things can be fixed much more quickly.

By keeping to a single point of contact, your web management tasks remain simple and focussed, allowing you to concentrate on your own work and the content of your site.

To discuss hosting your site, a bespoke package or any special requirements (SSL, e-commerce etc.) please contact me.
