Fully Managed Website Solutions
Hosting and maintenance services are offered alongside any new website build at EK Web. If you already have a web host but need help to manage your site, just ask for a tailored quote. The packages here are simply a guide to help you decide what level of support you may need, and can be changed to suit your requirements.
* All packages are based on a 12-month contract. Domain name registration fees are not included and typically cost around £8 for two years (for .co.uk domains).
** Maintenance services do not include any design or layout changes, addition of new static pages, copywriting, programming or script changes. Please ask for a quote for additional design work or other requirements. Pay as you go updates are charged at the standard rate of £25 per hour.
It’s important to keep your website updated regularly – not only for your customers but to help with SEO. Posting new content to your blog, or adding special offers or industry news are great ways to stay ahead of the ever changing market. Services include adding or changing text, images, gallery updates and product management.
All content is supplied by you, the client. I am happy to provide a quote for additional services – e.g. copyriting, logo design or graphics, finding suitable images or video content and updating social media.
Content management systems such as WordPress are upgraded frequently for security and bug fixes, as well as for new features and functionality. On top of that you’ll likely have plugins, widgets or theme upgrades. Since outdated software can cause compatibility issues, websites crashes and malware problems, it’s essential that you ensure the system is upgraded often.
Maintenance packages include different levels of backups, depending on how often you need your website updated. At the very least, a full backup of your pages and posts, plugins and galleries should be done monthly, and before making any major changes. Database backups are also essential, to be able to restore your site should anything go wrong.
For clients who prefer to manage their site themselves, I don’t offer a hosted solution on its own. However I’ll be glad to set up a domain name on your behalf, and to help you find suitable a third-party hosting package to ensure it meets the requirements for building your new website.
