At Josiesque Designs, we’re more than just an Austin web design company. With our dedicated support team, we are also able to provide website maintenance and security services available for personal blogs, eCommerce sites, small businesses, large businesses, chamber websites, and more!

What Is Website Maintenance?

Website maintenance is the service that will keep your website healthy and promote continued growth in search engines. This is done by fixing any existing technical issues or mistakes, implementing preventative measures to keep future issues or mistakes from populating, and publishing new or updated content to your website.

Why Do You Need It?

You can’t just throw a website out onto the Internet and expect it to do well on its own, and only check-in when there are issues or something’s broken.

As with every other aspect of a successful business, your website needs attention often and sometimes it’s more often than you’d expect.

You need to update your site with fresh content, change out images, add blog posts – you need to give your site visitors reasons to keep coming back and search engines reasons to keep you ranking in searches. With our website maintenance plan, we can help you with all these things and more.

What Is Website Security?

Website security is the service that will keep your website core engine and plugins updated, safeguard your website from cybercriminals, and resolve existing or future exploitation issues.

Why Do You Need It?

Keeping your website secure is more important today than most people realize. The threat of hackers attacking your website is a surprisingly common occurrence – so it should come as no surprise that we have a team specifically dedicated to the protection and security of our client’s websites through our Security Protection Plan.

We’ve been rooting out intruders and building safe havens for over a decade. In that time, we’ve learned what it takes to create real peace of mind.

Why Would Someone Want To Hack Your Website?

To Spam On Your Behalf

Your customers trust your good name, and hackers are counting on that. A favorite tactic is to send out fraudulent offers using your domain with your seal of approval. Once the bubble bursts, your reputation is in tatters and you’re vulnerable to liability issues.

To Steal Your Resources

Hackers like to do projects at high speeds, and they can use your property as a means. Incomplete site security lets others exploit your weaknesses and enter your website’s server, which is twice as powerful as any single computer, to use it as they please.

To Implement Negative SEO

Once a hacker has access to your website, they are able to send out thousands of messages to low quality, spam driven sites, backlinking to your website. Google penalizes websites connected to spam and you will see your search traffic fall as a result.

To Steal You & Your Visitors Information

It’s child’s play to place trackers on a hacked website. Once in place, they report your customers’ browsing habits, passwords, even personal financial information including credit card numbers.

What’s Included in Our Website Security Services?

  • Exploitation prevention and resolution.
  • Website fixes.*
  • Website core updates.
  • Plugin updates.
  • Quality testing.

As soon as your service is activated our team will apply necessary website and plugin updates to ensure you are as up-to-date and secure as possible.

If your website breaks, our team will fix it.*

If your website gets hacked, our team will fix it.*

While it’s impossible to be immune to hackers or website issues, our website security services will put you in the best possible position to prevent and resolve any issues that may occur.

*Fixes need to be related to hacking, outdated plugins, or outdated website core files.

Why Is Website Maintenance and Security Important?

Having a healthy website should be a top priority for any business owner who wants success both in-store and online. From our experience helping businesses online, maintenance and security tremendously helps to safeguard your brand, SEO, and customers.

Maintain A Positive Brand Image

Your website is an extension of you and your business. Consider the negative experience in-store visitors will have if:

  1. Your phone/computer/credit card systems are down.
  2. Your store has been robbed or vandalized
  3. An entire section of your store is inaccessible

Now think about these same issues in terms of your website:

  1. Your contact forms/check out systems are not working.
  2. Your website has been hacked and injected with malware.
  3. Visitors are unable to view certain products or areas of your website because of broken links.

These issues both in-store and online are catastrophic to your brand image. You wouldn’t ignore these problems in your physical store, why should your website be treated any differently?

Maintain Your SEO

Search engines like Google and Bing have complicated algorithms and strict guidelines when it comes to ranking websites. If your website has issues, especially security related issues, you risk losing rankings or even being removed from the search results altogether.

On the other hand, if your website is updated, maintained, and secured search engines will be more likely to rank you better in search results.

Retain Traffic and Customer Engagement

First impressions and traffic retention are vitally important to the success of your website online.

Guess what happens when your website gets hacked? You lose traffic and search engines avoid you like the plague.

What about typos, outdated information, or broken links? Those issues send signals to your visitors and search engines that this website is unprofessional, outdated, or even possibly abandoned.

The Advantages of Paying for Website Maintenance & Security

There are big advantages to hiring a professional website maintenance company.

  • You’ll have a dedicated team addressing your website needs daily with the experience to know what to look for and expect.
  • You’ll save yourself the time that is necessary to tackle these issues on a daily basis allowing you to focus on your business.
  • Website maintenance plans are a cost-effective investment that scales with your business.

How Much Does Website Maintenance & Security Cost?

The cost of your security and maintenance plan varies based on several factors including:

  • The size of your website.
  • What your website is used for.
  • What content management platform you are using.
  • Your website theme and plugins.

However, we have affordable plans as low as $200 per quarter and discounts when you bundle services!
