Why Website Maintenance?
Although we design websites that are easily managed and updated (CMS) there is still functionality that needs the attention of a seasoned developer. We know that our clients are too busy to “faff” on websites, trying to make it do what they want it to do. Hence we provide Website Maintenance as a service – be it to update new content or maintain the integrity of the site.
We are the mechanics that keep your website functioning and up to date with the newest technology.
Our website maintenance is available to all the top content management systems (CMS’s) such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal & Dotnetnuke. We also consider HTML & static website maintenance, however will insist the client moves to something more dynamic and up to date with the latest website technology.
Our website maintenance does not include general updates of your website or backups unless we are instructed to do so as this needs to be factored into your quotation beforehand. In order to ensure your website is backed up and has all the relevant security. We recommend you host with us moving forward. To find out more please feel free to contact us as well as see the hosting information below.
What is Website Hosting?
Your website requires a domain to work. (ie: boldonline.co.za) These domains have to be registered and hosted from a server. The server holds the website database and all relevant files used to create the website. The website can only function correctly once the files are on the server and have been pointed to your domain. This process sounds simple enough however it is the most important part of getting your website online and can be more time consuming than you may realise. We would recommend factoring time in for this accordingly.
Why Host With Us?
Our servers are provided locally (South Africa ONLY) meaning hosting with us provides perks that international hosts can’t compare with. All servers holding local IP addresses will take preference with search engines, over international IP addresses. Servers based in other countries physically require more load time to call up the information when searched as the data has to travel further. We are also introducing a dedicated server to our hosting option allowing better load time and minimal downtime to our hosts.
For most this create some confusion. Email Hosting works off the domain that you would like registered. (ie: [email protected]) Programmes like Outlook then get setup to process your emails once it has been setup. Where you benefit hosting email accounts with us is with our personalised technical service. Larger corporations in South Africa have been known to have more clients than they can service efficiently. Resulting in delay & frustration if you encounter any queries/errors with your email account.
