What is website maintenance?

Website maintenance is the daily care that goes into maintaining your website. Since your website is the primary vehicle that drives clients to your business, you want to make sure that it’s running effectively at all times. This includes having up to date content, hosting, security and much more. Find out below the web services that we offer to keep your site running smoothly allowing you to focus on the people of your business. 

About Domains and Hosting

A domain name is a human-friendly address, sometimes called a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or web address. This is where users find your website and its content, similar to the address to a physical house.

Web hosting is the process of renting or buying space to house a website on the World Wide Web. Website content such as HTML, CSS, and images has to be housed on a server to be viewable online. This is like digital “land” or “real estate” for the home of your website.

A server is a computer that connects other web users to your site from anywhere in the world. As the name implies, web hosting service providers have the servers, connectivity, and associated services to host websites.

What is website security?

Website security is imperative for your growing site. If your website is the vehicle that transports new clients and customers to you, then web security is insurance for that vehicle. Proper website security grants you peace of mind with proper SSL protection, firewall protection, external site backups and 24/7 monitoring to ensure your site is always up and running.

About Website Security and Maintenance

Yes! However, while our sites and content are easily editable and maintainable by our clients, this doesn’t include website security or backups should a site go down for self maintenance options. We highly encourage our clients to include a base security and backup plan for their websites for their protection.

Like a house, your website has a door (entry point) and windows (contact form, payment portal, etc.). A firewall is the door, lock, and alarm system for your house.

Hypertext transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, which is the primary protocol used to send data between a web browser and a website. HTTPS is encrypted in order to increase security of data transfer. A website with an HTTPS address has a legitimate SSL certificate issued by a certificate authority, and traffic to and from that website is authenticated and encrypted with the SSL/TLS protocol. All of our websites are encrypted with SSL.

Backups Prevent Loss of Data. Having backups is essential, even if you and your team know what you’re doing.

Website Security provides several different website monitors that will notify us by email if something looks wrong with your site. Think of monitoring and scanning as your website’s digital security guards. Monitoring sits outside and looks at the traffic coming from your site. It’ll sound an alarm when there’s something wrong with the traffic or when your site goes down and the traffic stops entirely.

Malware does not discriminate. With more than 30,000 new sites hacked daily, you want to make sure you are being proactive about protecting your website. After you set up Website Security, we will automatically scan your website every 24 hours..
