Due to the high level of care and expertise required to build a commercial website, our Website Hosting service and Maintenance Plans are only available to clients we build websites for. Because we’ve designed the website, we know all the different components and software that makes it work. We are also constantly researching the best solutions to maintain the integrity of your digital presence.

Why do you need to keep your website up to date?

Outdated websites are an open door to hackers and updates are essential to keep your website secure. Change is constant on the internet. Tightening and improving the security of your website needs someone to be looking ahead. We have systems in place to keep our clients’ websites up to date, with a strong focus on security.

Australian servers

Hosting your website using overseas servers is generally cheaper. However, time zone differences and distance will make your website slower. Search engines also pay attention to where your website server is located. If your main visitors are located in Australia, it is best for your website to be hosted on local servers. If you have both international and local Australian clients, we can add a content delivery service to your hosting service to improve the response time of your website. All of this depends on the type of website you have. What is important is that we can customise our services to suit your specific website needs.

Back-ups and security

As part of the security of your website, you need to have a solid back-up system in place. Keeping your website software updated to the latest version is incredibly important to the overall security of your website. But the internet is still a vulnerable place. You need to be prepared to identify and fix issues. In the event of your website being compromised, you need to have a strategy in place to ensure your website gets repaired or if needed, replaced with a recent back-up.

Content updates

Your website is a living part of the internet. Static websites without updates of any kind are viewed as ‘obsolete’, and ‘outdated’, and if you are an expert or professional in your field, your digital presence needs to match your approach to business. 

Soul Space Design can help you with:

  • Text updates
  • Blog posts updates including sourcing stock photos
  • Email marketing and Google My Business updates (this two can go hand in hand nicely)
  • Updating image galleries: ensuring your photos are web friendly.
  • Uploading products if you have an online shop: WordPress and Shopify.
