The city of Hamburg is located in northern Germany and covers 755.22 km2 (291.59 sq mi), making it the second-largest city in Germany, after the capital city of Berlin. The central city area is inhabited by 1,845,229 people, with a density of 2,400/km2 (6,300/sq mi).  The urban area is inhabited by 2,484,800 people (est. 2020), while the outer metropolitan area has a population of 5,107,429 people.

Germany shares its border with nine other countries and has 2389km along the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. The state of Hamburg is divided into seven boroughs and 105 quarters. Each borough has its own democratically elected parliament, which is voted in every four years by public members. Each of the parliaments deals with issues of local importance, such as transportation, schools, and local services. Quarters do not have independent governing bodies and are more for geographical and historical purposes.

Hamburg Economy

In recent times the economy of Hamburg has changed from industrial to a more service-based technological economy; the service sector now accounts for over half of all the jobs in the city. The majority of enterprises in Hamburg are classed as ‘small businesses. Over 90% of all businesses employ less than ten people. Although not as strong as it used to be, the industrial sector is still present, particularly in the aeronautical industry, with Hamburg being one of the essential areas for the production of aircraft parts in the world.

Hamburg is one of the leading transportation hubs of Germany, with numerous travel connections throughout the state. Hamburg International Airport (HAM) is located 8.5km north of the city center and operates frequent domestic and international flights. Over 17 million people passed through the airport in 2019, making it Germany’s fifth busiest airport based on passenger traffic volume. The S-Bahn train operates services that run directly from the airport to several locations in the city center.

Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV) is responsible for the operation of the transportation system, which is run and owned by several different companies. The HVV’s role is to create a smooth and unified journey for the commuter. There are currently bus, train, and tram lines in operation. The HVV serves an average of 1.95 million passengers a day. Bus services make frequent stops throughout the city center, and the Metro 5 bus line is the busiest bus route within Europe. Roads are well maintained and connect the state of Hamburg to surrounding cities and each of the neighboring countries.

The historic port of Hamburg is located on the banks of the River Elbe, and it is one of the most important ports for trade exports in both Germany and Europe. The port spans over 70km2 and has a large warehouse for storing goods. The Speicherstadt is a group of warehouses tourist attractions, but some are still used for extra storage space.

On a federal level, there is a set 15% flat rate, in addition to a 5.5% solidarity tax.

WordPress Maintenance Packages in Hamburg – 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 Hamburg 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.
