Cost of Different Website Maintenance Services

The general services that should be provided and their costs are as follows:

 

  1. Website Hosting:

If you want to be accessible to people then you must have website hosting included in your website maintenance services package. By and large, there are four kinds of website hosting services, they are- website builder, shared host, virtual private server, and dedicated server. Their prices are different for different service providers. The overall pricing of these services is given below.

You should choose your website hosting server according to the traffic that comes to your website. To save money, if you choose a cheap server then your website can be slow, as a result of which you can lose potential customers.

 

  1. Domain Name:

 

The domain name of your website is there in the URL and it sets your website apart from other websites. People will not be able to visit your website if you do not pay for the renewal of your domain every year.

 

  1. CMS:

Content Management System is a necessary part of the content marketing strategy of any organization. It helps you to publish, manage and upload the content of your website. Some popular CMS platforms are WordPress, WooCommerce, Joomla, Magento, etc. You can also have a custom CMS. Updates are released for CMSs to keep them secure and effective. These updates come with new tools and features as well. You need to pay the service fee for the CMS to make use of the services.  

  1. SSL Certificate: 

 

This site feature is essential for the safety, security, and trust of your visitors. With an SSL certificate, a padlock shows next to the URL of your website in search engines like Google. SSL certificate facilitates the secure transition of sensitive data between your website and the customers. There are both free and paid SSL certificates. 

 

  1. Tech Support:

Issues like server failure or dysfunctional forms come under technical support. Your service provider can fix these issues to make your website more effective. The price of tech support depends upon the turnaround time. The sooner you want the issues to be resolved the more the price. The basic turnaround time is five business days.

 

  1. General Website Updates:

Updates to your website are a necessary part of website maintenance as they improve the quality of the performance of your website. It includes updates to content, media, forms, webpages, navigation, background images, colors, links, files, etc. Sometimes you get confused whether the service you are asking for comes under general website updates or not. In that case, you should contact your service provider for more clarification.

 

  1. eCommerce System Maintenance:

If you have an eCommerce website then your payment system should always function properly, otherwise, your revenue will get affected. People should be able to make transactions smoothly and securely. With website maintenance, your website will remain live without any glitches, but the cost depends on the turnaround time.

 

  1. Website Analytics Report:

 If you want to examine the performance of your website and the result of your digital marketing strategies then you should select a service provider who offers an analytics report.
