What is website maintenance?

Website maintenance is most often required to keep your website updated with new content that you provide. Most good websites have new content updated regularly. Fresh content is what will keep your visitors coming back. This is an optional service that we provide for our customers. Of course, if you want to maintain your website yourself, then you are free to do so.




If I need additional work or maintenance on my website, how much will it cost me?

Unlike many larger Web design companies that charge as much as $80 per hour, Coastal Web Designs offers our services for the lowest cost of only $40 per hour for any additional work beyond the initial website development.
