Why Website Maintenance?

We are often asked “why does my website need to be maintained and why the need for WordPress Website Management Packages?”

Historically websites were just online brochures of your business. This was back in the days of straight CSS and HTML however, today more and more websites are utilising content management systems like WordPress. These more complex, yet easy to use systems turn your website into a marketing machine where it can start achieving a variety of objectives such as lead generation, education, eCommerce and so much more.

These platforms allow you to do so much more and are more affordable, but there is a twist. These platforms are also more complex and require more attention to perform to their optimal capacity.

Maintenance saves you in the long term

We like to compare WordPress websites to cars. When you buy a car, it looks brand new and works perfectly. After a year you go for service and change the oils etc. You keep servicing your car in order for it to run properly. If you don’t, you run the risk of it breaking down. The same theory applies. If you don’t maintain your website, you run the risk of it not performing or breaking down and having several negative consequences associated with this.

So, while WordPress websites have huge advantages the flip side is the real work starts after your website has been launched.

Not maintaining your website can lead to:

  • Increased page loading time
  • Security risks
  • Broken pages and posts
  • Poor user experience as things break
  • Declining search engine rankings
  • Increased marketing costs
  • Impaired page display

FAQ's

Do my unused website hours carry over month on month?

Unfortunately any unused hours fall away each month. We cannot guarantee that if you save up an amount of hours that you can then suddenly use them in one go as we might not be able to accommodate this. This is why we have taken the decision that your hours will not carry over, but we will always work with you as much as possible to ensure that you are fairly treated.

*Do prices include VAT?

Adarna is not VAT registered as of now. Prices are subject to annual increases. As such final prices will be negotiated before signing on.

When do I pay?

We require payment in advance. Unfortunately, we incur a large amount of costs every month and therefore cannot carry the risk of having to pay for a website for us to then not be able to recoup those costs.

If I have more than one website do I need a separate package per website?

The short answer, yes. Each website package comes with its own costs and therefore each website will need to be signed up on a separate package but we do offer a scaling discount based on the number of packages you take.

Do these packages only apply for WordPress websites?

Yes. The above packages will only apply to a website running WordPress. We are able to assist if your website is not built on WordPress but ask that you please contact us to discuss what you require in order for us to put together the best solution for you.
