about our Website Maintenance package

Commonly asked questions. For questions not answered below: info@aligndesigns.co.za

Why do I need website maintenance?

This optional service gives many of our clients peace of mind.

How?

  1. By having this service they know their site is less vulnerable to malware, virus attacks, design issues, etc.
  2. And in the event where their website does go down they know we have an up-to-date copy of their website for immediate upload.

Why is this needed though?
The backend software, plugins, themes (which make up the functionality and design of your website) are constantly being improved by the developers of those plugins. An outdated plugin may cause problems in design and functionality of the site.

We need to go in and manually update those plugins on a regular basis – once a month is ideal.

Shouldn't my website just always be 100% all of the time?

Think of it like buying a new car. One thing you should do is service it at regular intervals. You don’t have to service the car. However, if you don’t then wear & tear will cause way more problems. You’ll end up spending more money and time repairing the car later on.

Your website is the same. Except the “wear & tear” is constant updates of the backend software.  It’s cheaper and simpler to maintain it regular.

What if I don't want to maintain the site?

All good. Just note that if you choose not to maintain the site then your website…

  • Will be more vulnerable to viruses and malware attacks 
  • Will not have a current backup in case of emergencies 
  • Will end up with design issues/flaws
  • Will need to be rebuilt from scratch (at your expense) in the case where it goes down due to viruses, malware, etc.
