Website maintenance is crucial for every website. Websites that are not kept up to date pose security risks. Hackers and other nasty web-based threats find those little holes in the code. Plugins can become incompatible with each other, with your theme, or with the WordPress core if they’re not updated.

Do You Need A Web Maintenance Plan?

Let’s say that you just purchased a shiny new car. You happily drove it all over town and turned heads as you passed by. However, after a while you got caught up in the hubris of day-to-day life and forgot to maintain it properly. You neglected to check the oil and take it in for scheduled maintenance. So you soon end up broken down on the highway.
The same thing can happen to your website if you don’t care for it properly.

Your website brings your business to life. It drives traffic, and it convinces visitors to become paying customers. Just like that shiny new car, you can’t just build a website and walk away from it. It requires proper care and maintenance.

What can happen if you neglect your site? Well, the site will start to look outdated, which will impact your company’s credibility. Or maybe the site will begin loading slowly because of un-updated code. Or even worse, there could be serious security gaps that will make your site low hanging fruit for hackers.

You may start noticing a drop in user engagement and online sales, which will lead to the decline of your business.
For that reason, it’s critical that once you launch your site, you must keep it up-to-date and secure. You must stay current with changing trends and standards if you want to survive in this highly competitive market.
