Website Maintenance for Peace of Mind
We monitor, patch and secure your website for you 24/7, so that you don’t have to worry about it.
We monitor and upgrade your website CMS when new versions are released. This enables new features and fixes security issues.
Minor releases by 3rd party vendors are patched for you. Commercial versions are patched when valid license is supplied.
Each month we email you a report to show what we upgraded, when we upgraded and which version change took place.
We can your website for known virus and report them to you. Virus removal is NOT part of maintenance but we will alert you.
We monitor uptime for your website and report any downtime throughout the month, in your monthly website report.
We check known RBL Blacklists and report if your website is listed. Knowing quickly avoids interruption to your business.
If you don’t understand how to secure a website, ask someone to perform a security audit for you and either fix it for you or advise what you need to do to fix problems.
Essential operations to maintain a healthy website
If you do get hacked, how quick can you get back up and running. If you have a clean backup, you have something to work from.
No excuses for being busy. Just get it done. If you don’t have time, pay someone to do it for you. Non-maintained websites are the most likely to get hacked.
If you aren’t using SSL, you should be. Not only is there an SEO perk, you secure logins and make it harder to intercept transmission of data. In addition, run a firewall on your website even if there is one running on the server.
Hackers look to exploit existing files and add their own malicious code or they upload new files to execute functions on your website hosting. Proactive monitoring alerts you early so you can tackle the problem straight away.
Website Hack Statistics
Any website can be hacked. If a professional hacker targets your business, they will likely find a way but ensuring your systems are patched, up to date and secure, makes it harder for them.
You can read more at Hackmageddon who do a great job highlighting the problems. Read their summary of hacks in 2018.

Open Source websites are commonplace (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, OpenCart etc) but unless they are maintained properly and kept patched and up to date, they can cause you big problems.
What can YOU do to protect YOUR website?
There is no guarantee here BUT what you MUST do, is minimise the risk and this is what we suggest you do. Whether you do it yourself or pay us to do it for you, is ultimately your call.
What can W.E.B.S Ltd do?
We maintain customers websites by attaching our own maintenance plugin, which actively monitors core system upgrades, plugin updates, security releases as well as monitoring uptime, activity and blacklist reports.
24/7 we monitor and patch websites and once a month, we send an email report, which details exactly what was updated including detailed version change history.
Do W.E.BS Ltd provide backups?
We do not provide backups as standard, as part of our maintenance service. However, if you host your website on our servers, we provide secure backups via Amazon S3 servers as standard.
If you would like us to take backups for your externally hosted website, we can configure backups on our Amazon S3 account, in a custom bucket for you.
Please contact us for a price, which will depend on the size of your website.
