Types of Website Maintenance

Each site must have regular maintenance services. However, there are sites that require more and more and other sites that require least..

Here are the types of maintenance to consider depending on the type of your site:

Maintenance of corporate websites:

If you have an corporate website whose primary purpose is to present your business in a positive light and provide basic information about services and work hours, you belong to a category of corporate sites. These sites require minimal maintenance because they do not need to perform complex operations and therefore their system is fairly basic.

Additionally, corporate sites do not contain valuable information or private information about users and therefore there is little value to hack them or hurt them. When your corporate site is at low risk and does not contain complex components, the need for ongoing maintenance decreases and you do not have to pay large amounts on a monthly basis.

You must require the following services:

  • Secure website storage.
  • Website system maintenance.
  • Website plugins maintenance.

Maintenance of Ecommerce websites:

If you have a sales website that aims to sell as much as possible, you belong to a category of Ecommerce websites. Ecommerce sites are required for more complex systems and usually include advanced capabilities such as credit card clearing, user accounts, order management and inventory, and many other important components.

Additionally, Ecommerce websites sometimes include valuable information such as personal information, credit card information, and user passwords. Combining these account components + identifying information + credit information together offers quite a few loopholes for hackers who see this information as a value that can be exploited in a variety of questionable ways positioning your site at high risk.

You must require the following services:

  • Secure website storage.
  • Website system maintenance.
  • Website plugins maintenance.
  • Traffic Encryption Certificate (SSL).
  • Website security components.
  • Periodical monitoring.

Maintenance of service/information websites:

If you have a website that aims to provide public information (websites of public entities) or a website that aims to provide customer service and customer support (sites of large companies), you belong to a service / information site category. Service and information sites are often targeted by hackers who want to damage the image of the organization / company behind the website.

In some cases, companies are required to upload information about all of their customers or to enable various actions relating to service packages or payment settings of the customer. In these cases, customers are identified by means of an ID card and other characteristics, which requires compliance with strict ISO standards and with very high level of encryption.

You must require the following services:

  • Secure website storage.
  • Website system maintenance.
  • Website plugins maintenance.
  • Traffic Encryption Certificate (SSL).
  • Website security components.
  • Periodical monitoring.
  • Real-time access monitoring.
  • Website backup on a daily basis.
  • Website content management.
  • Website information management.

Maintenance of community websites:

If you have a website designed to allow different people to chat with each other (forums, chat sites, closed social networks, customer clubs), you belong to a community site category. Community websites consist of users and therefore the highest value in this site is the number of active users and their relationship to the site.

Social websites are not necessarily under threat attack. Instead, there may be users that will make criminal use of the site or attempt to hack into various user accounts on the site in order to extract valuable information. In addition, there are users that will attempt to perform prohibited actions on the site such as fraud or harassment and you must enforce these situations in severity and in real time.

You must require the following services:

  • Secure website storage.
  • Website system maintenance.
  • Website plugins maintenance.
  • Traffic Encryption Certificate (SSL).
  • Website security components.
  • Community control in real time.
  • Website backup on a daily basis.
  • Website communication Management.
  • Website user Management.
