Why is website maintenance important?

Website Design, Website maintenance

Well done you! Your website is up and running which is great start. Maintaining it makes sure your time, effort and money doesn’t go to waste. It’s like servicing your car, if you don’t keep it well serviced it’s not going to perform as well.

But why does a website even need maintaining? Won’t it just always work?

The online world is ever changing and evolving, patches and updates are released on a daily basis to fix security vulnerabilities and block attack hacks. Updates are also released just as often to add new functions and improve efficiency. Web browsers are updated regularly on computers, smartphones and tablets and the way that a webpage displays on them can change and need updating accordingly. A design that once displayed fine on Internet Explorer 7 might not work so well on Microsoft’s new Edge browser.

User Experience

If information is not up to date or displaying correctly on your website then this is unlikely to give your customer a good first impression. Therefore maintenance is essential to keep your site looking it’s absolute best.

Changes made can be short posts about company news, industry news, job opportunities or even giveaways.

Technical Website Maintenance

In conjunction with updating content and images, the technical side of your website should also be maintained. Your website could go down or get deleted and that’s the wrong time to find out you don’t have a backup!

Your site needs to be regularly checked for broken links too. If search engines try to crawl your site and finds broken links, your website will fall in the rankings. We can help check your website every month for broken links and fix any issues, keeping your website ranking high.

Need help?

This may sound like an overwhelming task, but don’t be scared… well maybe a bit. You probably thought that once you launched your website it could just be left alone, unfortunately you’re wrong.

Your website is a machine, that you have to maintain for it to work at its maximum potential. Without proper maintenance your site will more than likely break, costing your business valuable custom.

Finding DCX has been great for us. Dan has worked miracles to get our new website up and running so quickly. Making any alterations when asked and going above and beyond to ensure we are happy with the final product. I have no doubt Dan's after sales will be a valuable service to us going forward.

Thanks Dan for designing our website. It’s exactly what we wanted. After researching various companies, I chose you on the impression you gave me during our first few chats. You showed great knowledge and enthusiasm to give us exactly what we wanted without charging us for something we didn’t need (as told by our then provider). You’ve been brill from start to finish helping us migrate from our existing provider over to you and even helped to sort our emails out so we could keep the same address. You answered my many calls and always responded to my questions or asks promptly - like any professional should. Thanks again and I will be recommending you and your services. 5*

Dan was a pleasure to work with, bringing our new website and rebrand to life, waveL communications! He was able to guide us through all the questions we had, breaking down complex programming jargon into easy-to-understand steps for non-tech specialists. I would thoroughly recommend Dan to anyone who is looking to transform their B2B WordPress site into an exciting, dynamic and impressive experience, one week on and we're already having good reactions and conversations with prospective clients. Looking forward to working with you the next time!

Wonderful design, incredibly flexible and friendly service. From outlines to colour schemes, I've been involved in the whole process and really feel that the final design fits with my specifications. Communication has been prompt and efficient, with frequent opportunities to talk through ideas. I couldn't recommend this web design service more.

Thank you Dan for doing such a great job on my website. You stepped in to help me when I had an issue with my previous provider, you updated my website after having to recreate it from the platform it was on previously. You completed this work to a very high standard and ahead of the schedule you set out which I really appreciated. I found working with you very easy and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who is looking to either have a new website or revamp a current one. Thank you again for the great service you provided.

We appointed DCX design to produce our group websites and from the initial enquiry we found their service was provided in a prompt and professional manner. The design ideas for our websites were some we have not seen before which helps our websites stand out from the rest providing good search engine optimisation. We were impressed by the way DCX Design integrated the use of social media and reviews into our websites. We would not hesitate to recommend them and we look forward to further instructions in the future.

Dan from DCX Design has been a pleasure to deal with to rebuild our website. We wanted a website exactly like our existing one, with some updated colours and logos, for our rebrand, and we got this and more.Dan has been proactive in suggesting improvements and ways to present things a little better. More than what we expected - he likes to go the extra mile.When providing our service, Dan has been efficient by completing tasks quickly and before any deadlines agreed. At the same time there has been concise and clear communications, so I have always felt up to date.Because we have been so impressed, we have also signed-up to a hosting and maintenance service. A couple of amendments have been requested and dealt with very quickly already - the excellent service of our website build continues under the maintenance service too!When we look to redesign our website in the future, we will definitely want to work with Dan and DCX Design - we would highly recommend them as a high quality service provider.

Great experience to work with DCX Design; he came recommended to us and was very keen to make sure we got our site where we wanted it to be. He has made it really user friendly for customers and for us to maintain the content. The whole process was done by phone and email - covid times were prevailing but this didn't stop us getting the results! Daniel was a pleasure to work with despite not meeting in person!
