Antwerp – The Travel Thrill of Europe

The city of Antwerp is located in Northern Belgium on the banks of the River Scheldt, 46km north of the countries capital city of Brussels. The city center covers 204.51km2, while the municipality spans 1,449km2. Antwerp is the second-largest city in Belgium – after Brussels – with a total population of 523,248. The municipality of Antwerp is sub-divided into nine districts for administrative purposes, with the Antwerp district being the largest. Although the economy of Antwerp is not as strong as in Brussels, the city is one of the major economic centers in Belgium.

Belgium is a member of several large international organizations such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), located at Boulevard Leopold III in Brussels, and it is a founding member of the European Union (EU). In 2002 it adopted the euro currency (EUR), which replaced the old Belgian franc (BEF).

Antwerp Economy

One of the city’s most important economic areas is the diamond trade – over 85% of all diamonds in the world are cut and polished in the city, and the diamond industry employs more than 30,000 people, while the Antwerp World Diamond Centre sets international standards for the diamond industry. The city has four bourses: 1 for bort and three for gems.

The Port of Antwerp plays a massive role in its economy; Belgium’s largest port and the second-largest port in Europe, shipping goods to over 800 maritime destinations and handling 157,800,000 MT of trade annually. It also has a separate passenger terminal for the docking of large cruise ships.

Antwerp’s central positioning makes it a prime location for conventions, trade fairs, and exhibitions, with several dedicated conference halls, offer modern facilities.

Antwerp Infrastructure

Antwerp has a modern and dense transportation infrastructure, with travel possible by plane, train, bus, and road. The area is served by Antwerp International Airport (ANR), located just 2km from the city center. For a more comprehensive selection of flights to international locations, there is the Brussels Airport (BRU), situated 45 km from the city center and has an excellent connecting highway that runs directly from the heart of Antwerp to the airport. The airport is the biggest in the country, handling 26,360,000 people and transporting almost 500,000 tonnes of goods annually.

A large central railway station acts as a hub for both domestic and international rail travel, with direct links to major cities in neighboring countries such as the Netherlands and France. The partially underground tram system has 12 lines that span Antwerp’s central areas, and a bus network allows for commuter transportation to areas not currently served by the trams. A ring road circles the entire city and offers connections to all major areas in the country, and a new highway is under construction, which will also see a new viaduct and bridge built in the city at the estimated cost of €2.2billion.

Antwerp Workforce

Antwerp has a multi-cultural workforce – large ethnic groups include Moroccans and Turks, and 13% of the population hold a foreign passport. As with most cities located in the Flemish region of Belgium, most of the workforce speak the country’s official language of Belgian Dutch, and the local dialect is known as Brabantia.

Several high-profile universities and colleges in the city offer both undergraduate and post-graduate degree programs. The University of Antwerp is the largest in the area, and it has over 20.367 students enrolled (est. 2016) in courses and 850 staff members employed at the institute. The university also houses a sizeable foreign student population and runs study programs in both Dutch and English. Many universities are publicly funded and require no tuition fee – instead, a small registration fee is payable, which varies from €100 for bursar students to €567.80 for any student who is not eligible for financial aid. The low cost of higher education makes it more accessible to public members and helps create a skilled and educated workforce, with a high national literacy rate of 99%.

Antwerp Business Costs

Belgium has moderate to high personal income taxes, which work on a tiered scale depending on the amount earned by the individual per annum. Personal taxes range from 25% to the highest bracket of 50%, which applies to all individuals earning over €40,400. There are also additional social security contributions and communal taxes, which can bring the total rate up to 57.3%. Corporate taxes are set at a flat fee of 30.99%, with an additional 3% crisis surcharge. There are three vat rates in Belgium: a low 6% for books and medications, a reduced rate of 12%, and a standard 21% rate payable on most other goods and services.

All legal workers in Belgium are protected by a relatively high minimum wage pact, which ensures all employees are paid at least €1,440.67 a month, based on a 38 hours work week, and applies to all workers over the age of 23. Wage rates in Antwerp are amongst the highest in the country, along with the labor costs in the capital city of Brussels.

Office rental rates in Antwerp Decentralized District are less than half the costs for rentals in Brussels Quartier Leopold Area, costing an average of $21.37 per square foot per annum, compared to $43.56 per square foot per annum in Brussels.

WordPress Maintenance in Antwerp, Belgium – Why Do You Need It?

To keep your WordPress website performing well after its online publication, your website still needs to be managed and technically maintained. It is not prudent to just publish your website and walk away thinking “job-done”.

Search engines such as GoogleYahoo!, and Bing are constantly evolving using artificial intelligence and changing their algorithms (the way they evaluate your website) to finely hone their user’s search experience. Therefore, properly managing and technically maintaining a website ensures it stays in tune with changing search engine technology and software environment.

After the publication of your website, I can continue to be the webmaster for your website, providing website technical support and carrying out any website maintenance required.

The WordPress Care Plans in Antwerp are renewable monthly or annually, and, depending on your specific case, it can include the renewal of hosting space and domain name, maintaining website security, monitoring website traffic, search engine re-submissions and tracking changes, as well as recovering your website in case of disaster.

Nowadays, many people simply forget to backup their enterprise website: Maybe the stress of running their business, the lack of knowledge, or any other reasons.

Some of the bad scenarios when you need a site backup:

  • Hacked site recovery – In case you need to recover your business website very fast, and in the same way it was, you need a backup.
  • WordPress updates break your website – It happens. Every time you make a theme or plugin update, make sure you do a backup before. Most people put those updates on “auto” mode, meaning your WordPress site can go down while your potential clients are surfing on it. That’s bad!
  • Cheap hosting – One of the biggest problems with those cheap hosting providers ($1/month, $5/month, $15/month) with UNLIMITED traffic, UNLIMITED domains, and other misleading offers may disappear after a few weeks you just bought their plan(s). Guess what?! Your website will disappear, too. In order to keep your website online, you need someone (person or software) to take care of it, and take prompt action in case of any problems.

In any case, you need a fresh and well-structured backup of your website. But these WordPress site maintenance services aren’t only about backups. I also provide Security protection for your site and implement the last réglementation in the matter of WordPress security. Your website is in safe hands and your enterprise will continue to prosper.

Why is WordPress website maintenance important?

WordPress is the most successful CMS (*content management system). Due to its heavy use worldwide, however, it is also a popular target for hackers. Similar to an operating system on the computer, WordPress must be updated regularly. Functionalities are expanded and security gaps are closed. Once regularly updated, WordPress is stable and secure. However, WordPress installations that are rarely updated or not updated at all are vulnerable and run the risk of being infected by malicious code.

I take care of all the necessary details to make your WordPress website more secure and regularly update the WordPress core system and all plugins used. In the first step, I carry out a basic check of your WordPress website. I check the WordPress core data, plugins, and themes used. I check the performance and carry out the first security checks. Your system is checked for security gaps and for viruses, malware, or Trojans. I am interested in the general condition of your website and the associated immunity of the system. As soon as the basis is right, all further work follows.

I keep your WordPress website up to date with regular updates

For the operation of a professional WordPress website, it is necessary to ensure regular updates of the system and the installed plugins and themes. Regular updates are the basic work for a safe and stable WordPress website. I carry out these essential tasks and constantly stabilize the immune system of your website. At the same time, we check the compatibility of the individual plugins and the functionality of the entire website after each update.

I create backups of your WordPress website

Your website is important to your business and often the focus of many marketing efforts. A successful website puts a lot of time and energy into it. This business area can be temporarily paralyzed by WordPress problems such as incompatible plugins or themes. This is not yet about hacker attacks or other infections. That’s why regular backups are the reinsurance of your website. Thanks to a WordPress backup, we can quickly restore the normal operation of your website in an emergency. I take care of your WordPress security and create regular data backups on external servers and secure your business sustainably.

I check your WordPress website after each update

In addition to the necessary updates to the WordPress core version and the plugins used to keep your website stable and up-to-date, a subsequent check of your website for functionality is mandatory. Since plugins are offered by different developers and companies, incompatibilities can never be ruled out. Especially when using many plugins, the risk increases, and problems can occur. Therefore, a function test of the website after each update should be routine. I offer you this routine and can also carry out an analysis of the plugins you use to determine whether they are necessary.
