A Hosting Package

Your website is made up a collection of files and code. To be visible on the internet they need to be stored on a web server. Web hosting companies sell or rent space on their servers for you to store your site. Hosting packages can vary enormously so it’s important to choose the right package for your needs.

Regular Maintenance

Website technology is ever changing and to keep your website running smoothly it’s important to keep all its basic components updated and optimised. Edgeways websites run on WordPress, so necessary maintenance includes WordPress, theme and plugin updates and then fixing any minor issues that might spring up. It’s also a good idea to keep your site clean and tidy behind the scenes – keep images optimised, delete unused files or draft posts.

Security Features

All public websites are vulnerable to attacks by hackers and bots. There are several very easy essential steps that you can take to make your website more secure – using complex passwords that are hard to guess, avoiding suspicious links or untrustworthy sites that might contain malware etc. For WordPress websites you can also install plugins to monitor and scan your site and bock potentially malicious visits. These are installed as standard on all Edgeways websites.

Regular Backups

Incase anything does go wrong – and that could be a mistake you make, a malicious hack or something else totally beyond your control, it’s essential to have a recent backup of your site so that you can get things up and running again as quickly as possible. We recommend at least monthly backups – more if you update or add to your site very regularly.
