Beyond the cost of running the website servers that keep your site online, modern websites are designed with tools to enhance its utility and keep it in line with best practices, which are constantly evolving and being updated. Your website is built on a "stack" of software, actually, so there's a need to keep all of these tools updated with the latest security and features. While the process of updating things is sometimes as easy as a single click, it isn't uncommon to find that an update for one piece of software disrupts another piece of software, or may require some basic troubleshooting, or more. These updates are available every 20 to 60 days, so it's something we keep track of, and do for you, so you don't have to worry about it. We also make backups of your site to ensure that you're always ready to get put back online in the event of something unexpected.
