Nowadays, communication between businesses and their customers through digital media, such as websites and SNS (Social Network System) is becoming increasingly critical. On the other hand, we all have to remember that not just designing your own website but running it afterwards require knowledge and experiences about various technologies, which can make website management painful or costly, and sometimes both.
For example, when you experience a slowdown in the performance of your website, you may need to contact tech support of the internet provider that you are hosting your website contents, or you may need to look at the files and codes contained, to understand what is going on. If some of your files are corrupted for any reason, you may have to replace them in the right manner without destructing other files. In order to do so, you need someone who knows what to do. However, the cost to retain a person for running a website with certain level of knowledge and experiences can be expensive.
