MAINTENANCE & SECURITY
IS MY WEBSITE REALLY AT RISK? DO I REALLY NEED A WEBSITE MAINTENANCE PLAN?
YES. The fact is, all software is vulnerable – and the software that’s used to build your website is no exception. Over time software grows old and becomes increasingly more exposed to hacking and malicious attacks. Most times these attacks are completely random and have no underlying intention. If you’re website is not protected with a Website Maintenance plan, it’s only a matter of time until it become a target, it’s as simple as that.
These attacks come in all different shapes and sizes. Some go unnoticed and some do everything they can to harm your business. We’ve seen ecommerce stores hacked to promote a competitor’s product, and law firms hacked with thousands of pages of x-rated material. In the blink of an eye your your entire online (and offline) reputation can be ruined.
If not contained quickly, you run the risk of having your website blacklisted and marked as spam (see example). When this happens, all of your visitors are turned away by Google and all inbound and outbound email is automatically marked as junk and rarely delivered. This can take months or sometimes years to recover from. In severe cases, an entirely new domain, website and email service is needed – costing you tens of thousands of dollars. And that’s only the cost to fix the problem – consider the months of lost business and the harm done to your name. That’s why we’ve created our unique Design Lab Protection package. For a small investment each month, you can rest assured that your website, and your reputation, are completely safe. By actively monitoring your website we prevent, catch and fix any issues that arise before they have a chance to do any harm.

What is the difference between cheap hosting and Design Lab Hosting?
Your Time! If time away from your business costs you money, then Design Lab’s Premium Website Hosting is crucial to your bottom line. The true cost of cheap hosting is not the monthly fee that you pay, it’s your time! The time you have the spend on the phone with a customer service rep that can barely speak english. The time you spend on hold or waiting for a call back from someone trying to identify and solve and website, hosting or email issue. All of this time translates into dollars – and at the end of the day your “discounted” hosting could be costing you hundreds of dollars per month.
The reason that these big name hosting companies are able to offer their services so cheaply is becuase your not paying for any human interaction. They automate as much of their business as possible, dump millions into their ad campaigns and put the customer last.

You dont have to worry that one day your website will be down and wont know who to call. You’ll always have direct access to our support team who can help you with any questions or issues you might have.
