Website Support Services

Ongoing support is valuable, especially since many new website owners lack the skills or time to perform important tasks that need to be completed after a website is launched. Running a business can be tough. You donțt need on top of that extra headaches relate to your web presence. We may become your trusted advisor and one stop resource: we are offering free consultation time included with most of our packages for our clients to call and ask for advice. Or, alternatively, we are offering these consultations independently of these, based on a flexible rate.

WordPress and Joomla are among the most popular Content Management Systems (CMSs). They have also become popular for malicious actors, as cybercriminals target sites on these platforms for hacking and injecting malicious content. The most well-known threats to CMS sites are the result of vulnerabilities introduced by outdated core, poorly written, unmaintained plugins, themes, and extensions. For many websites, especially those based on a CMS such as WordPress or Joomla!, regular updates are a fact of life. If you own a site based on Joomla or Wordpress you need regularly check these sites for vulnerabilities, and keep them up to date. Clicking on the update button is easy, but understanding the process and being able to deal with the unpredictable is hard. You might have no clue how to update a site’s core software, such as a CMS like Joomla or WordPress, or how to test and improve the site over time. Most likely you have no idea how to stage a change before taking it live or reverse an update that sends things awry. And this is the moment when we are coming into picture: we can take off this from your shoulders and keep your sites in top shape.

Hosting your site is also an important factor of your sitețs lyfecicle. You donțt need to be a hosting expert to do it with majority of hosting providers today. But still you may factor time into your plans for investigation and resolution of issues. The scope of what you can cover with technical support (e.g., domain issues, hosting, Joomla/WordPress core, themes, plugins) will depend on what you’re comfortable with. Better call us to deal with these issues - we have the time and expertise, and, ultimately we are also offering our hosting services too.

And then there’s security — hackers love to deface websites for no other reason than because they can. Site security is a huge problem for poorly maintained sites everywhere. Secure setup and ongoing monitoring is valuable for small businesses that can’t afford to manage it on their own. Even if you as the site owner have the skills to deal with these things, you might not have the time. We have both.

Joomla 2.5 was supported until the end of 2014, when the new Joomla 3.5 family has take it's place. Upgrading your existing Joomla 2.5 sites to Joomla 3.* (or other STS - Short Term Support - releases) is not necessary, but we urge you to upgrade-migrate your existing Mambo, Joomla 1.0, Joomla 1.5, Joomla 1.6 or Joomla 1.7 sites to the latest available Joomla 2.5 version.
