Once launched, your website will require regular updates to keep it up-to-date with critical security, software and device updates.
For most businesses with an established web presence, their website has become crucial to business operations. It’s an important tool for generating leads, communicating with customers and driving sales. So you will want to make sure your website remains available for your audience 24/7 without any performance issues, security errors or downtime. To ensure that your website remains in good working order, it is advisable to have a maintenance or website support service in place.
Cybercriminals target websites using malicious softwares to gain access to your website files. A website can be easier to ‘hack’ due to factors such as:
- Little or no regular maintenance or updates
- Poor web hosting choices
- Little or no security on the website itself
- Nobody to turn to for help when disaster strikes
- No backup & system restore in place
No website is ever 100% safe. However, a support & maintenance service will vastly reduce the potential vunerabilities to your site and ensure speedy action is taken should a problem arise.
