The Platforms We Maintain for Durham, NH Websites

With years of experience developing websites for Durham businesses (and those in other areas of the country), our web designers and web developers have been immersed in multiple platforms. That said, it is better to become a master of a handful of platforms rather than try to specialize in them all. For that reason, our web support agency for Durham websites tends to service only the following platforms:

In the past, we provided website maintenance and support for Joomla and Magento platforms of Durham businesses. However, we chose to move away from those platforms to allow our website support experts to focus more heavily on training and support within the other systems.

Example Web Maintenance Service List for Durham, NH Businesses

After the launch of a website, we're often asked for detailed examples of Durham web maintenance requests. Here are several examples of Durham website maintenance services we've been asked to perform in the past and would be more than happy to provide to you!

Simple Durham Website Changes

Changes to your Durham website could be as simple as updating a paragraph, swapping images, or adding a new page. Keeping content fresh for search engines and visitors is just normal, routine web support.

Durham Site Performance Improvements

Let us check your Durham website for hosting, caching, image optimization, console errors, broken links, poor database queries, and other potential problems that might be impacting your page speed. User experience and SEO will both benefit from better page load times.

Platform Upgrades / Security Patches

If your Durham website is running on a content management system, like WordPress, it is important to keep the platform updated. Updates help improve security and functionality - and they're usually quick, so it might be a simple task.

Plugin / Extension Updates

If your Durham website has functionality developed and maintained by a third-party, it is important to update those plugins and extensions to include the latest changes by the developers. The idea is similar to updating the CMS platform since it fixes security and functionality problems.

Google Search Console Issues

Has Google Search Console told you there's a coverage problem? If so, we'll look at the coverage issues, fix them, and update you on the status. Make Google happy, and you'll rank higher throughout Durham and beyond!

Setup Structured Data

Have you ever noticed information like reviews or product prices in the listing of a Google organic search result? This is structured data, which is a standardized way to describe the content on a webpage, whether it's a local Durham business, or an ecommerce product.

Add Open Graph Tags on Your Website

Adding Open Graph Tags to your website will help search engines better understand your page content and improve the appearance of your website in social media platforms when people share links of your Durham business.

Add Google Tag Manager

Would you like to manage custom scripts more easily with Google Tag Manager? That won't be a problem! We'll happily install Google Tag Manager on your Durham website and teach you how to use it.

Setup Conversion Tracking

If you are interested in understanding the benefit of an online advertising campaign for your Durham website, it is important to setup conversion tracking. This will help you understand where your conversions are coming from, such as a Google search or a Bing Ads campaign.

Image Compression (Optimization)

Are large images slowing down your Durham website? No problem at all! All your images can be compressed by our tools, and we can even setup recurring compression for newly added images!

Add Live Chat

Would you like to try live chat? If you'd like us to recommend the best live chat system for your Durham business, install the tracking code, and customize the design for your branding, we can do it!

Review Error Logs for Issues

Have you noticed large error_log files on your hosting account? We can help diagnose the issue and update programming code or repair platform issues to prevent recurring error messages.

Reduce Spam with reCaptcha

If spambots are attacking your Durham website, we can setup a checkbox or invisible reCaptcha to help minimize unwanted submissions on your forms.

Setup a Caching Plugin

Looking to install a caching plugin on your Durham website, but not sure how to configure it? We can recommend caching plugins, or we can install and configure them for you!

Implement SMTP Email

If you want to improve email deliverability, we can set up your contact form and website platform to send emails via SMTP instead of PHP mail.

Restrict Malicious IP Addresses

Is your Durham website being bombarded with fake orders, contact submissions or live chats from a specific network? We can help setup IP restrictions to prevent malicious traffic from interacting with your website.

Create Website Backups

Do you want to create a backup of your Durham website? We can help you create one-time or scheduled backups that store locally or at an offsite location.

Create a Development Website

It is often recommended that you setup a development or staging website before proceeding with a major upgrade or extension installation. If you'd like help creating and managing that development / staging site, just let us know!

Implement A/B Testing

Do you prefer to make design changes based on statistical data regarding how users interact with your Durham web page? If so, we can help you implement A/B testing to gather data to help inform you of the best choice between two or more design layouts.

Create 301 Redirects

Are you launching a new website or removing pages from your website? You should create 301 redirects for your Durham website. We've seen businesses in and around Durham lose huge amounts of organic traffic due to widespread broken pages. We can help you create 301 redirects within .htaccess files, nginx templates, and CMS platforms.

Provide Website Training

Do you need help learning how to make changes to your Durham website? If your Durham site was developed in a platform we work within, such as WordPress or Shopify, we'll be happy to help!

This will help you get a better idea of the experience you will have with their expert New Hampshire website support services before you submit payment and provide website access.

  • Can you tell me how you handle website security? Do you run website security scans for clients?

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

Corey was extremely helpful and spent a considerable amount of time going over my difficulties with a newly created website put together by someone else. I was under a very stressful deadline and he was extremely considerate and helpful. He managed to fix the problems that I was experiencing with my website. I had reached out to a number of website developers for help but only heard back from Webcity and Corey got back to me within minutes!
