Maintaining your website yourself can be a tedious task
Just like any software, websites require maintenance to keeping the site working properly. Avoiding website maintenance is like not having regular oil changes on your car. You wouldn’t drive your car very long if you didn’t look after its maintenance, would you? Well, the same process is true for your website. Your website should always be live, ready for customers and presenting your business at its finest.
A website is a living creation
Why a regular maintenance program is beneficial?
The Maintenance Workflow
Doing it yourself and saving money?
Maintaining your site yourself could cost you more than you may think. If you just update from your WordPress admin, you wouldn’t have a record of what was done. If an update to a plugin created an issue a couple weeks later, it would be difficult to know what changed and how you should revert back without restoring a very old backup (and possibly losing content changes, sales orders, contact entries, you name it).
You could also ask for help the son of your neighbour or that friend who built the website for you in his/her spare time. But when emergency arises, the website is down or something else is not working, he/she is not available or you wait for ages…
Cheap or free is not the best long-term solution!
It Costs More to Fix Than to Maintain
