Website maintenance Cost
Do I need website maintenance services?
Yes !, website maintenance is an essential part of keeping an online presence for your company. A website is a sort of like a car in a way. You keep a car topped up with air in the tyres, oil in the engine and coolant in the radiator. Now a website doesn’t have wheels but it does have lots of interlinking parts. Some of these parts from time to time develop security flaws, new versions come out or the parts somehow become obsolete as technology moves on.
What does it cost?
Website maintenance cost either £10 p/m or £20 p/m
We have 2 website maintenance packages for our clients:
Do you want to sell things online from the website that we develop for you?
If yes then we charge £20 per month to host and maintain your website.( Example Website)
If no and you do not want an online shop then we will charge £10 per month.(Example Website)
Benefits of a monthly maintenance package

Here is what you get when you sign up for one of our website support packages. All the features below are covered in the website maintenance cost.
Hosting is the house in which your website lives. This server/house is what connects your website which is essentially a bit of software to the world wide web. No website can work without being on some sort of server.
When you initially make contact we will have a chat and find out what your company is called. We then go away and try and find a great domain name for you.
Popular domain names are .com for international businesses and .co.uk for local UK based businesses.
When you sign up for one of our web development packages we include 1 free .com or .co.uk domain name.
Have you ever seen those local builders that have their companies contact information on the van?.
The company is called Bobs Builders but the email on the van says email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Wouldnt it be better to have email@example.com ?.
We can provide you with up to 20 personalised emails for example firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be able to send and receive emails in a more professional manner.
Ever seen those sites with the little padlock to the left of the website address ?.
That little padlock is an SSL certificate. It is a further level of safety to add to your website. and changes your website address from http://yourwebsite.com to https://yourwebsite.com. This additional (s) after the http is really important for ranking higher on google.
We have different tiers of SSL certificates to offer so please contact us to find out more.
Backups are the ultimate in protection for your website.
The ultimate worst case scenario is that your website becomes the target of malicious hackers intent on taking down your content.
With regular backups being taken your content is always safe. Your website is backed up every day and stored on a different server.
The worst thing that can happen in the worst case scenario is that your website gets taken offline for a few hours.
If you would like to add a further level of security we can have these updates sent to a G Drive of your choice.
As well as all the amazing features and benefits from using GTWeb to maintain your website. We also offer support to our clients who want to learn how to be more independent with there website.
I personally make video tutorials for our clients on specific problems they are having. We aim to teach as much as we can to whoever wants to learn.
However, not everyone has the time or interest to learn the workings of the websites but if you are interested contact us to find out more
Every single one of our websites that we develop has a blog feature. Blogs are great for getting new content on your website. If you can use Microsoft Word then you will be able to start blogging.
