These aspects ensure that Craft CMS remains a reliable and high-quality choice for businesses seeking a professional CMS solution.

Why do I need website maintenance?

Your site is made up of an interconnected combination of custom code, styling, 3rd party plugins and the Craft CMS core software itself. Just like with any software, the environment the website exists and operates in is constantly changing and the site needs to be updated and improved accordingly.

Website maintenance is all about implementing those critical updates to your site to keep it current and optimised. These updates cover both performance improvements but also bug fixes and security patches.

Doing regular maintenance is required to make sure your site continues to run well but also reduces the risk and impact of an undesirable event happening, like a hack, compromise or data corruption.

·     It helps to make your site perform at it's best (speed, reliability, security etc)

·     It’s much cheaper to do pre-emptive maintenance on a regular basis

·     Outdated plugins can cause functionality to stop working

·     Helps to identify and address issues early before they evolve into problems

·     It maintains (and often strethens) your site’s security

·     Like the dentist or mechanic, prevention is better than cure!
