Post-launch

The launch phase is obviously an important stage of your website’s life cycle. There are a number of things we do immediately post-launch to ensure we can keep an eye on the health and well-being of your site.

  • Submitting your website to multiple search engines
  • Creating an analytics profile to track your website stats
  • Creating a Google Webmaster Tools profile to monitor the general health of your website and to be alerted of any downtime
  • Employ caching and Gzipping for lightning speed
  • Install social media meta tags for optimised social media sharing

Going forward

Our service to you as our clients doesn’t end simply when we finish building the website. Your website is a continually evolving platform that requires constant care and attention. Your maintenance agreement ensures that we give it these things. These things include but are not limited to:

  • Regular WordPress updates
  • Regular plugin updates
  • Broken link checking
  • Code refactoring (code improvements)
  • Security updates and website hardening
  • Uptime monitoring
  • Nightly database backups (for continuous 30 day period)
  • File backups (twice version-controlled backups of all files)
  • Email support
