Wordpress, Drupal & Joomla! Maintenance and content Updates $60-Per Month

A Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla CMS is never done. It is constantly changing and If you don't keep upgrading, updating and maintaining your CMS, you risk losing your site. Many times without notice!


Content Management Systems such as Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla require regular releases of incremental version upgrades and updates that must be maintained. Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla Version updates insure that you website installation is patched securely as well as providing bug fixes, security enhancements, improved speed, functionality, browser compatibility, mobile responsive layouts and more for your website. You can upgrade your Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla site on your own, but more often than not it fails, and in many instances people have upgraded without a backup of their live site. They cannot get back to the pre-upgrade/updated version.Don't take the chance, let us help you.


Many people think of websites as a one-time expense. They want to pay a developer, get a nice website "built," and then move on. But that's not how it works. A website needs to be maintained. A website is just like the corner store. It has windows, shelves, floors, equipment and a cash register. Lots of things that can break, need to be cleaned and maintained. Would you try to save money by skipping taking care of these things and selling spoiled foods, broken merchandise or have broken windows and a dirty floor? What would happen? The same things happen to people who buy on a website, but don't think about long-term maintenance. The customers will leave and post bad reviews.


Sure, they save money on upgrades for a few years. Then, one fine morning, their website collapses and has to be sent to the junkyard. Not updating and upgrading is inviting spammers to break in and grab all the private user data, and leave without a trace. Maintaining a website is vital to security, keeping your customers, and increasing your sales.


Upgrades are time consuming and can break your Joomla Wordpress and Drupal website. You can try it yourself, but it will likely fail. I don't know why website owners think this is a do it yourself project. Bay Area Website Works gets calls all the time to rescue failed upgrade/update attempts. This results in extreme amounts of downtime and un-needed expense. The most common upgrade/update mistake is a lack of a backup. If you upgrade without a viable backup, you can't restore your site when the Joomla Wordpress and Drupal upgrade fails.


Our Wordpress, Drupal & Joomla! Site maintenance and content update plan includes:

•CMS Version Updates (1 Time Per Month).

•CMS Version Upgrade Assessment (1 Time Per Month).

•Being the technical contact for your domain registration and hosting account.

•One free hour each month for updating the content of your site. Additional work you would like us to do will be at a reduced hourly rate for 25.00 per hour.The price is usually $35.00 per hour.

• Monthly back up of your site and restoring the site from the backup if something goes wrong.(Remote Backups are saved by using Amazon S3, Dropbox, Rackspace Cloud, FTP or email. Note: Amazon S3, Rackspace and potentially FTP would have additional fees associated with them.)

•Updating the navigation menus to reflect the additions and updates.

•Updating your social media connections (such as Facebook and Twitter accounts) with announcements of your new or updated content.

•Creating and submitting new search engine site maps and sending them to major search engines(Google, Bing and Yahoo).

•Update of proper page titles, META tags, page headings, ALT attributes and link title attributes.

•24 hour site monitoring(You will receive a monthly report showing when your site was down and how long it was down and a total percentage of you up-time for that month. This service will help us identify website issues and show you the performance of your website.)
