OAK Interactive offers website maintenance to keep your WordPress Website running securely at its peak.

WordPress is a great platform that’s used for most of the websites on the internet. But, as a legacy blog platform, it wasn’t originally meant to be used to build full-on websites. So, over the years, using open-sourced code technology, developers around the world started building add-on code (known as widgets and plugins) that developers could use to make the site function or look the way they want it. From moving graphics to shopping carts, plug-ins drive the robustness of WordPress-based websites.

WordPress Needs Attention

However, one of the biggest marketing issues that business owners often overlook after they’ve built a website is the site’s ongoing maintenance.

After your website goes live, you cannot just leave it alone. It needs constant monitoring, backups, updates, and technical support. While some plug-in developers are great at keeping up with the latest .php updates that address performance and security gaps, others are not. And sometimes, your website developers may write custom code for those plug-ins on your site to make them work the way they want. Your custom code may not work seamlessly with the new .php update which can break your site. When a plug-in doesn’t work, it can cause a glitch in the user experience at best or take your site down at worse.

Ongoing website maintenance is the least expensive way you can keep your site running securely at its peak performance. As a leading digital marketing agency in Houston, OAK Interactive has years of experience in helping businesses maintain their website’s security and performance. Our all-encompassing website maintenance service plan allows you to rest easy knowing that your site is constantly monitored and running on the latest software.
