Do you need a maintenance plan?

Web maintenance plans are best suited for business that are growing fast but do not have the designated staff yet due to budgeting or the workload. If this is the case Young Seagull can be your integrated team – filling your needs in the interim.

maintenanceOur goal is to integrate content management system in a way that you can control your website without having to outsource it. Most of our clients choose to manage their website on their own and we fully encourage this.

Over the years we’ve characterized some of our customer’s maintenance needs into several different maintenance plans:


“I need someone to keep my site secure, update the system and take backups”

With this plan we generally ask minimum of 4 hours per month. In this scenario, we work on hourly basis for updates. Most updates can be completed within 48 hours and often within the same day.

Host with us and enjoy a fully incorporated hassle free plan. As a second option we can manage your relationship with your hosting provider for a nominal surcharge.


“We need regular updates but don’t have the staff to support us”
