Have you ever ignored that pesky little sticker in your car windshield or light on your dashboard, telling you your car is due for an oil change? It probably didn’t seem like a big deal at first, until your engine failed – leaving you stranded without transportation.
If only you had invested a little time and money to keep your car in working order, you could have avoided a major, costly breakdown.
The same goes for your website. Just like our cars, our websites require maintenance!
Maintenance on your WordPress website helps to keep everything working properly to maintain your presence online.
Yes. Especially if you want to put your best foot forward for every website visitor.
Your website is often the first impression you make, and a site that isn’t working properly can be a major turnoff to your visitors.
For a small monthly investment from a reputable provider of managed WordPress hosting (cough – like Shout it Out Design – cough) you will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your site is being cared for.
Managed WordPress hosts help prevent website breakdowns, and are your reinforcement to quickly address any issues as they arise.
Basic managed WordPress hosting should include:
Keep in mind these services are in ADDITION to hosting the website. So, while managed WordPress hosting will cost more than the $5/month you might spend at a major hosting company, you get a heck of a lot more bang for your buck.
Letting your website go without upkeep, much like letting your car go without proper maintenance, is asking for trouble.
It costs more to fix a broken website than it does to actively maintain a working website. Plus, with the dedicated support of an expert managing your site, you get to avoid the headaches of troubleshooting website that isn’t working properly.
Much like regular car maintenance, monthly website maintenance can prevent unexpected pain and cost down the road.
