These updates often include improvements made for site functions and security. They occur rather frequently so 7 MIle Web Studio monitors your site daily and keeps the site software updated at least once a week and sometimes even more often depending on the urgency of the developer’s software changes.
Weekly Off-site Backups
Your website pages are obiviously important for your small business marketing. Any loss of your website could set you back financially, especially if you don’t have a recent backup of your site. 7 Mile Web Studio stores a weekly copy of your website backup off-site. We can restore your site from the backup, if something like the following goes wrong:
