What is Website Maintenance?
Website maintenance includes revising, editing, or otherwise changing existing web pages to keep your website up to date. The periodic addition of new web pages is also part of maintenance services.
Website maintenance also includes repairing sections of your website that stop functioning properly. Typically, links and graphic images are most prone to corruption over time, but basic HTML pages can also become corrupted.
Websites are not intended to be static. The value of a practice website is the ability to maintain current information online at a reasonable cost.
We assume that you will want to revise some or all of your web pages over time, as well as adding additional web pages according to your business needs. To assist you in maintaining current information online, we offer several options for website maintenance.
We include the maintenance and repair of links and non-loading images free when you use our website design and hosting services. If you move your website to another hosting service, we will no longer repair links
and images free of charge.
In addition to repair of malfunctioning components, you will also want to revise your website from time to time. You may wish to revise information on web pages to remain current, to reflect changes in your
contact information or services, or to highlight new or additional services as your practice develops. Ease of revision is probably the most important service you should seek when choosing a web developer, and we
offer website revision and expansion services at a very modest cost. Plus, we can revise your website very easily, since we designed the original site for you. This continuity of service is our most important asset,
and you will definitely appreciate our modification services over time. Your expected frequency of website revisions should influence your maintenance contract choice.
Website Design and Hosting customers who want to make revisions or additions to their website have several options:
- Additional revisions can be made as often as desired, based on an hourly charge of $75.00 per hour, with a $50.00 minimum charge. This includes revisions and uploading of all changes onto the Internet.
- Revisions can be made on a regular basis for a set monthly fee. The monthly cost will be determined by the size of your website. If you think you will be making regular revisions to your website, this option
will be more economical than paying for each revision separately. A maintenance contract allows revisions to your website once per month, rather than paying for each revision separately. Ask for more information
about monthly maintenance contracts if you think you will be making frequent revisions to your website.
- Adding new pages to your website is an additional expense. The cost per page is lower if you choose a monthly maintenance contract.
- Newsletter Option. One page on the website can be designated for a newsletter, articles, current information, or a similar topic. The text can be changed once monthly for a flat rate of $25.00 per month, with
an annual contract. This does not include changes to any banners, images, buttons or links, to or from the page.
