Website management and maintenance services
Like a car or any mechanical or electrical device, your website needs to be managed and maintained. You’ve put time, money and effort into it, so it needs to earn its keep. If it isn’t looked after, it can’t do its job properly.
If you don’t have the time, skills or software to update your site, it will quickly become dated and ‘dusty’. WEB-right’s website management services can manage and maintain your site for you, making changes and updates promptly and efficiently. If your website needs our help, for more information or phone us on 02392 503 742.
What needs to be managed and maintained?
There are three aspects to website management and maintenance:
- The Domain and the Hosting
You need to keep up the registration of your domain – if it expires, your site will disappear from the internet.
You need to pay for the server space where your website files are hosted.There’s more information on our Website nuts and bolts page.
- Your website content
As your business changes and develops, you’ll need to add or re-write the words on your site. You might also want to add new images, especially if you have a gallery. Your visitors and Google will like to see that you’re keeping your website up to date.
You can do much of this yourself – it’s very easy with a WordPress site. But if you want to get the best SEO (search engine optimisation) performance, the copy or words need to be written in a specific way.

- Website security and backups
It’s a sad fact that websites are constantly under attack from hackers, and your’s will be no different. Unprotected sites can have their comments bombarded with spam. Sometimes hackers just want to deface your site and delete your files. Hackers can hijack your site to send out spam emails or bombard other websites to take them off line. Sometimes hackers will add files to your site so that every visitor is infected with a virus.
To protect your investment and online reputation, all parts of your website should be kept up to date, secure, and backed up.So our clients don’t have to worry, we have developed our Website Update, Security and Backup Programme. Being on this programme ensures WordPress, the Theme and Plugins are the latest versions, extra layers of security are added to protect your site from spam and hacking, and regular backups are taken which are stored securely in a separate location.
