Ongoing Maintenance Services

From insightfulness to exquisiteness, RP proved to be an excellent partner on all aspects. Flexible work schemes, dedicated developers plus an advisory role indirectly.

We have used Remote Programmer for last 77 months (as on March 2014) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 400 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.

Lutfal and Champa and their team (Remote Programmer) in Kolkata have been working with me since 2003.

I personally went to India to visit Lutfal and his team in 2007 to start off our project and they made me feel very welcome. I was impressed by their set-up and professionalism. I would highly recommend Remote Programmer to anyone.

Website Maintenance Services

Just developing a website is not the end of the story. This is actually the beginning. To understand the importance of hosting and maintenance you must know the life cycle of a web application first.

Here is the full life cycle of a successful Website / Web Application

  1. Register a domain to host a website / web application. This is an ongoing cost renewable yearly.  
  2. Develop the website / Web App by a Web Development Company.  Upload it on the hosting account. This is a onetime cost.
  3. Host the website / Web application on a web-server to make it available to public via internet.  This is an ongoing cost renewable monthly / yearly.  
  4. Maintain the website / web application. This is an ongoing process.  The maintenance work includes - add / modify the website to meet the changing business requirements, take care of security and data backups.  
  5. Market the website/application through SEO and paid marketing techniques. This is an ongoing process with some extra work at the start.

If you don't maintain your website, soon it will be outdated. Your basic purpose will not be fulfilled.  New tech issues may also crop up due to changes for various reasons like web server changes, security hacks, data loss etc.  So there is no point of making a website if you don't maintain it.

We can take all the hassles for a nominal cost.

Tasks Included in Maintaining a Website

  1. Routine Monitoring of the website, database and web hosting account on an agreed schedule. Fix an error that has been cropped due to  any external reason
  2. Periodic data backup  in a 3rd party server  
  3. Modification of an existing feature  and addition of new feature
  4. Move the data in the new server in case server changes
  5. Provide tech info to people connected to the web application on your behalf. It may be a website user, a SEO guy or anyone related to website.  
  6. Routine work  that requires server administration skills using ssh
  7. Anything tech work related to your website

Integrated Hosting Services

We offer integrated hosting services to host our developed sites in our dedicated / VPS server with our maintenance deal.  Monthly maintenance tasks are often related to the hosting servers and so if you host in our servers, the total maintenance work will be easier and we may be in a position to offer better deal.  You also do not have to bother about managing a hosting account with someone else.  You can avoid all the regular hassles and concentrate only on your business.

Which Hiring Model to Choose?

If you have a big website to maintain, has some urgent works for a developer almost every day, you should go for Full Dedicated Hiring Model. You should prefer to hire the same developer who has developed the website.

If your website is not too big and you do not have works-to-do for a dedicated developer there is no point to hire a dedicated developer. But you have some works every month to be done with priority, and you do not want a new developer every time to work on your project, you should go for a Part Dedicated Developer Hiring Model. We will most likely assign the same developer who has worked with your project in the past.

If your website is not that much serious, you can afford some delay in making the change and you do not bother whether it is being done by the same developer or by a different developer, you should go for Usage Based Hiring Model.
