WordPress Maintenance and Support Services in the Amsterdam – 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 publish your website and walk away thinking, “job done.”
Search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, and Bing are constantly evolving using artificial intelligence and changing their algorithms (the way they evaluate your website) to hone their user’s search experience finely. Therefore, properly managing and technically maintaining a website ensures it stays in tune with changing search engine technology and software environment.
After publishing 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 Maintenance Amsterdam services 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 forget to backup their enterprise website: Maybe the stress of running their business, the lack of knowledge, or other reasons.
Some of the bad scenarios when you need a site backup:
- Hacked site recovery – If 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 isn’t good!
- 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. 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 WordPress security. Your website is in safe hands, and your enterprise will continue to prosper.
Why is WordPress website maintenance essential?
WordPress is the most successful CMS (*content management system). However, due to its heavy use worldwide, it is also a popular target for hackers. Like 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 revised or not updated are vulnerable and run the risk of being infected by malicious code.
I take 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 fit for security gaps and 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 correct, all further work follows.
I keep your WordPress website up to date with regular updates.
To operate a professional WordPress website, it is necessary to ensure regular updates of the system and the installed plugins and themes. Frequent updates are essential to work for a safe and stable WordPress website. I carry out these critical 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 essential 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 regular operation of your website in an emergency. I take care of your WordPress security, 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 different developers and companies offer plugins, 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 analyze the plugins you use to determine whether they are necessary.
