Your website needs regular maintenance to perform as it should. Updates are always being made to the Content Management System that we use to design our clients’ websites, and keeping your installation up-to-date is extremely important, especially since so many of these updates are security fixes and patches that will prevent potential exploits of the vulnerabilities of your website and/or blog.

Because of the popularity of the CMS that we use, is so popular, it is often targeted by hackers who will try to tap into your site and wreak havoc. As soon the developers of the CMS find these vulnerabilities, they create patches to fix them, leading to regular updates that will keep your website installation clean and safe. If you do not keep your website installation current, you risk becoming the next victim to malicious attacks that can be easily prevented by keeping your website’s code up-to-date.

Because this can be a cumbersome task, The Web Design People has created a suite of Website Maintenance Service Plans. Each one will help you make the most of your website and stay on top of a variety of features that can give you ideas for improving your website.

Each plan requires a minimum commitment of one year, which is charged at a monthly rate. Payments can be made via PayPal, but if PayPal is not an option, other payment methods can be discussed.

Payment Frequency

  • You can make your payments monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or annually. Please mention your preference when contacting The Web Design People to sign up for a Maintenance Plan.

Please note that due to the nature and format of The Web Design People’s products and services, no refund policy is offered. If you require maintenance and you are not currently subscribed to one of the below plans, maintenance tasks will be performed at $90/hour (see Hourly Rates details below).

IMPORTANT NOTE: If any issues arise with your website due to our negligence in any way, we will fix the issue at no additional cost.
