We offer website maintenance services to give you the experience and peace of mind that you need. Even if we didn't design or host your website, we can maintain your existing site and do everything from security updates, to keeping the content up to date. 

Website maintenance can improve your website in many ways, including:

  • Keeping your website CMS system up to date, to protect from hacking.
  • Improving speed and performance, and reducing downtime.
  • Improving search rank through repeated changes that help drive traffic to your website.
  • Keeping content new, and fresh by avoiding out of date and incorrect information. 
  • Website security to identify and fix problems before, or after they occur.  
  • Ensuring your website stays up to keep your business growing, rather than focusing on tech support fixes after-the-fact.

We have been maintaining websites for over 22 years, and have helped keep websites secure, updated, and relevant, by ensuring the latest updates are implemented. One common threat to the security of the internet, is poor planning, and lack of understanding of how websites are maintained or updated. In fact, while it is important to keep your information updated for your business, it's also important to keep up to date on regular threats that can not only take down your business, but expose you to costly lawsuits.
