From years of experience we know that the best performing websites never stop their development. Even when initial design stage is complete and site go life and available for search bots to start indexing there are still a lot of work could and should be done to make it faster, easier to crawl and overall better performing. At Business Web Admin we plan this stage when we start new website production and give our customers several options to choose from. At minimum most of the modern website need support to run smoothly and remain up to date, the web server software itself, their system core, plugins or modules needs to be regularly updated.
Any website must have a backup (better several types of backups)! For example, we do server backup, full system back up, site and separate database backups. We store them with hosting provider, Amazon S3 storage, local computer storage and external hard drives.
There are several other ongoing tasks and monitoring activities that ensure stable site up tame, fast and smooth loading.
And there are changes, modifications, additions and corrections for fine-tuning and optimizations that come with time to enrich experience or to answer particular marketing efforts, or because owners have better understanding of their clients, products and online sales process.
