Website Maintenance – What is it?

In Useful Information by Kryptonite Creative

Website maintenance is an integral part of keeping your website secure and working properly. But many website owners don't realize the importance and benefits of maintaining their sites. Having a good developer that will update and maintain your site is something one should not only consider but should do and have.

No Proper Maintenance

Without proper site maintenance, your content gets old, plugins, applications, and software versions become outdated, and the worst scenario is when you overlooked your domain name renewal date. That means your site will be gone without you knowing it. Consider yourself lucky when you catch the time before someone else snaps up your domain name. You links get broken, images disappear, your website performance speed slow, and your site ranking on search engine becomes too low.

These are just some of the issues that can happen if you do not maintain your site or if you do not have someone looking out for your site. It's like not having regular oil changes done on your car. You wouldn't drive your car very long if you didn't look after its maintenance, would you? The same goes for your website. We, at Kryptonite Creative, make sure your site is always live, has fast performance speed, and tells your business story at its finest.

What do we do?

At Kryptonite Creative, we take great care to your website. We create back ups, check and update your site and then recheck the site for any changes and updates. Our software keeps a record of the apps and plugins that we change or update so if there's an issue, it can quickly be restored or fix.

"Just like a car, it costs more to fix your site than to maintain it. Regular oil changes and maintenance help your car to run smoothly and properly. The same goes when your website is regularly maintained."

Can You Save Money, if you Do It Yourself?

Some website owners prefer to update and maintain their own website to save money. Yes, you can do it yourself, for as long as you also have the technical know-how. But what if you only know the basics? That's why it is advisable to have a developer who will be able to help you. Maintaining your site yourself without the proper technical knowledge can cost you more than you may think.

At Kryptonite Creative, we record everything. We update our client website regularly. We devote ourselves to checking the site thoroughly from performance to security. If we run into issues and problems, we address and fix it right away. We take care of all plugins and apps, which need updating and single out large updates like WooCommerce for additional quality control. With the services we provide, you wouldn't need to worry about your website not working perfectly.

What if you do not have a developer who maintains your website? More likely, you may actually be throwing money out of the window by not providing proper maintenance to your site. No customer will hold their breathe for an hour just to wait for your website to load, or if the order is not going through. You're lucky enough, if your customer will point this error to you but more likely, you've already lost a lot of potential customers.

The Cost for Fixing is More than to Maintain

Just like a car, regular maintenance help keep your vehicle running properly. Inexperience and negligence can damage your website design and functionality. When that happens, you need to make a choice that can make or break your site. But either you leave it as is or try to fix it yourself, in which case you may do further damage. Or you can pay a hefty price for a one-time service.

Experience and Expertise Can Help You Save Money

You know what's best for your business and we also know, what we can give you best. You know your products or services, we know ours. Why not deal with your expertise and let us deal with ours? Why try to maintain your own site, when you know you don't have the proper technical know-how? Why not just hire a professional web developer who knows what he is doing?

By hiring an experienced web developer to update and maintain your site, you save money. As the old cliche says, “you have to spend money to make money,” and this is so true when it comes to your website. Your goal is to impress your customers, get them to come back, and buy your products or services. Then, keep your site secure and properly well maintain.
