Why is website maintenance important?

by | Website maintenance, Website Design

Well done you! Your website is up and running which is great start. Maintaining it makes sure your time, effort and money doesn’t go to waste. It’s like servicing your car, if you don’t keep it well serviced it’s not going to perform as well.

But why does a website even need maintaining? Won’t it just always work?

The online world is ever changing and evolving, patches and updates are released on a daily basis to fix security vulnerabilities and block attack hacks. Updates are also released just as often to add new functions and improve efficiency. Web browsers are updated regularly on computers, smartphones and tablets and the way that a webpage displays on them can change and need updating accordingly. A design that once displayed fine on Internet Explorer 7 might not work so well on Microsoft’s new Edge browser.

User Experience

If information is not up to date or displaying correctly on your website then this is unlikely to give your customer a good first impression. Therefore maintenance is essential to keep your site looking it’s absolute best.

Changes made can be short posts about company news, industry news, job opportunities or even giveaways.

Technical Website Maintenance

In conjunction with updating content and images, the technical side of your website should also be maintained. Your website could go down or get deleted and that’s the wrong time to find out you don’t have a backup!

Your site needs to be regularly checked for broken links too. If search engines try to crawl your site and finds broken links, your website will fall in the rankings. We can help check your website every month for broken links and fix any issues, keeping your website ranking high.

Need help?

This may sound like an overwhelming task, but don’t be scared… well maybe a bit. You probably thought that once you launched your website it could just be left alone, unfortunately you’re wrong.

Your website is a machine, that you have to maintain for it to work at its maximum potential. Without proper maintenance your site will more than likely break, costing your business valuable custom.

No18 go live has finally happened and I genuinely couldn’t be more excited or happy with the website Dan has created.Dan totally understood my brief and what I was trying to achieve from the get go. He even some how managed to turn my (at times) crazy ideas, into action and I genuinely believe the website speaks for itself and showcases his many talents. Dan’s personable approach makes it incredibly easy to discuss ideas with ease and I genuinely enjoyed working with him to pull my website together. Couldn’t recommend him or his services enough. Thanks Dan for helping me bring my dream business to life! Tara (No18 interiors founder)

We needed a professional looking website but had been quoted such high prices for what we could afford. Dan did an amazing job, we just chatted for about 30-45 mins, sent him some text and images and he created the perfect site. Couple of very minor tweaks and was all done, up and running within a week! Spot on service and very professional.

After 3 months in business I needed my website updating, and Daniel seemed to know what i needed more than me, he understood what i wanted the site to do and he did the rest, great service, support, advise and backup, all completed in the time allowed and within budget, Highly Recommended.

My experience with DCX Design was a first for me in terms of website design and construction. However despite a complete absence of knowledge on my part Dan was able to interpret my somewhat sketchy ideas and requirements and turn them into something way beyond my expectations.The speed at which Dan was able to do this was incredible. The time between our initial meeting to having the website live was far shorter than I was imagined possible.To top it all, working with Dan was a pleasure – his friendly but professional approach put me immediately at ease.In short the service provided by DCX Design has been nothing short of phenomenal. I would recommend them highly to anyone looking for a website.Rob HoweDirector - PlanCon LTD

I would like to say a big thanks to Dan for building my first ever website. Dan was affordable, professional, friendly and easy to work with, especially given the sensitivity of the subject of which the website was about. Would recommend him to anyone! The feedback on the website so far has been really positive!

We are extremely pleased with the website delivered by DCX. We were in massive need of an updated, faster and more responsive website with a modern appearance suitable for mobile devices as well as desktops. Not only did Dan at DCX exceed our requirements, he did so in a friendly, helpful and professional manner and with very little from us in terms of a brief.I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend DCX and thank Dan for assisting our business in moving forwards digitally.

Dan has been invaluable in the setting up and initial running of our holiday let business.  He built our website with limited and sporadic instruction / information from me due to the birth of my baby girl.  He is approachable, efficient and most of all creative.  Dan has been very patient with me and not made me feel like a total technophobe which I am.  I would highly recommend Dan if you are starting any business and you need a website designer.
