Why do you need your website managed?
The primary reason for most problems with websites is that they were not configured correctly by whomever setup/designed the site the first place and is not being properly managed and maintained. Without regular maintenance, your website is likely to have unpatched security holes and vulnerabilities which can be abused by hackers and cybercriminals.
This can result not only in poor performance of your website but in the theft of any personal or financial data you collect on your website, putting you in breach of the data protection act, or malware can be inserted into your site and spread to all your visitors, eventually causing your website to become blocked by Google.
Cyber criminals are scanning the web for security holes and vulnerabilities all day, every day.
Any website which runs on backend technology such as ASP, PHP, ColdFusion, Java etc will have vulnerabilities, especially if they are running off the shelf eCommerce or CMS systems such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and many others. When these vulnerabilities are discovered, they are patched by the software developers, and those updates then need to be applied to your website and any plugins.
If you have a bespoke built website, then you are less likely to be targeted, but this also means that you have no assurances about the quality of the code and any vulnerabilities in the code will never be detected until it is too late unless you are manually and routinely reviewing the code, which rarely ever happens.
Most website owners mistakenly think their hosting provider or web designer is taking care of this.
Your hosting provider does not maintain your website for you, they only provide the hosting, unless explicityly stated otherwise.
Most web designers just handle the design of your website, and then hand it over. They are very rarely providing ongoing management and security.
Although hosting providers do scan their servers for malware, this is file-based scanning the file system of the server itself, it does not scan or detect malware injected into your website by hackers.
