What’s the difference between website maintenance and website management?

So, you are wondering what the difference between website maintenance and website management is?

Let me explain. Website maintenance is the process of regularly checking your website for technical issues. This includes checking for code errors, checking performance, checking your website loads on all pages, making sure your website is fully optimised code and database wise, amongst other things.

If you have a simple HTML static website then this process may not be as intensive as opposed to, say, running a website that uses a content management system such as WordPress.

WordPress is a content management system that is constantly being updated which is something that every website owner should pay attention to, falling behind with software updates can open up the flood gates to problems and it can also be a security nightmare.

Website Management

Website management entails a number of different services that are combined together so you don’t have to worry about running your website.

When you contract out website management to a company like Millbank Digital to manage your website, we do all website-related work and all you need to do is tell us what you need. Management can be broken down into several categories which include, content management, graphic design, custom development, marketing, web analytics, web support and web hosting.

Most businesses lack the time, resources and breadth of expertise to manage their websites properly. And if you want to keep your website live, working for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, that’s exactly what you need. In short, your website is your most valuable employee. Working constantly, invisibly, generating business, sales and profits for you.
