You want your website to "just work", but hackers are more common than ever. You need a partner to keep your key business asset "just working" while you run your business.
Websites are not “set and forget” items. Like any valuable business asset, they require ongoing monitoring and maintenance. Without this maintenance, your website could be vulnerable to hackers, experience slow loading times, functionality and even data loss.
Life Digital offers optional maintenance plans to ensure that, once your website has been successfully developed and launched, that it continues to perform well for your business and is protected from known risks. If you choose, Life Digital can also provide ad-hoc update services, as opposed to regular ongoing maintenance.

Want to maintain your website yourself?
At Life Digital, we believe in offering you the best option for your business, but sometimes clients want to maintain their own websites.
Sometimes this is to save money, and sometimes it might be because you want to be self-sufficient, or you have a staff member working for you who has the time to dedicate to this.
Whatever your reason, if you are maintaining your website yourself, it is important to know that you are responsible for being proactive with your site maintenance and to keep it running fast, secure and up-to-date.
Hosting providers require you to, as a minimum, ensure WordPress core and plugins are up to date, especially those that have been identified as having a security vulnerability.
Website maintenance agreements are not to be confused with our website warranty which we provided to all websites we build for our clients. As standard, all our new website builds have three months warranty on the website as it was handed over. This means that if you discover an error on your website, we will fix it at no charge.
Warranty does not include feature additions/changes or design changes. It only covers errors. Warranty excludes server/hosting related issues or issues due to changes to the website by the client or third party.
