Yes – Drupal maintenance and support is always worth it. Case in point: We had a customer come to us who hadn’t updated their site in years and was so compromised that we had to start from scratch. Instead of spending a few hundreds dollars of month/quarter, the customer had to spend thousands of dollars to resolve their issues.
Rather than asking if maintenance is worth it, the better question to ask I, “How often should I get Drupal maintenance/support?”
We recommend that every customer have a maintenance contract in place. However, there’s a big difference between, say, a brochure type of website (which may need maintained a few times a year) and an eCommerce site (which will need maintenance weekly).
Below is the breakdown of our recommended website maintenance frequency. Disclaimer: If there is a security update, then you should update your site right away, no matter your maintenance plan.
|Type Of Site||Monthly||Quarterly|
|Basic business site||*|
|Basic brochure site||*|
You might not think your Drupal website needs any updates or maintenance, but then one day your site goes down – This is a very common story we hear monthly. To help you, here’s how you can tell if your website needs some maintenance.
In order to see an ROI on your maintenance investment, you’ll want at least 10 hours/month of Drupal maintenance. This amount should cover basic module updates, some security updates and maybe even some minimal changes.
If you’re looking for development changes each month, then you’ll need 20+ hours/month.
