Frequently Asked Questions

What is website maintenance?

Website maintenance is the ongoing process of making sure a website runs smoothly and functions as it should as much as possible. It involves ensuring your website is secure by performing any updates and doing security scans, fixing bugs, and a multitude of other tasks. Website maintenance should be run weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually. It’s a continuous process that requires care and attention.

Why is website maintenance necessary?

Website maintenance is vital to ensure your website runs at total capacity and functions perfectly for users. Just like a car, your website needs to be regularly tuned to make sure it’s still driving your goals forward as much as possible and performing at speed.

Google also favours websites that are updated regularly in the search engine rankings, meaning having an actively maintained website will directly help you reach more customers. It also ensures your website has no weak spots that bad actors can exploit. Staying on top of website maintenance is vital to ensuring good security.

Can I maintain my website myself?

Yes, you can maintain your website yourself. However, it can be challenging – especially if this is your first time doing it. Website maintenance requires a high level of expertise and large amounts of your time, both things that can be hard to come by when you’ve got other aspects of your business to focus on.

While it may seem like a money-saver to maintain your website yourself, any mistakes you make might cost you more in the long run. All in all, if it seems an overwhelming task to undertake yourself, it’s best to outsource your web maintenance to a team you trust.

How often should a website be updated?

How often your website should be maintained depends a lot on the size and complexity of your website and the system it uses. If your website is built using a content management system like WordPress that needs regular updates, the answer is weekly.

The same goes if you’re focused on SEO and want to drive your website up the search rankings, as Google favours regularly maintained websites.

Can I just turn on automatic updates?

WordPress does allow you to configure your setting and allow some updates to occur automatically – however, this is risky. Updates can break your website, break links and cause other functionality issues. This is why any updates to your website should be tested first and deployed with care, and a backup should be created first.
