WordPress Website Support and Maintenance
Helping you keep your site updated, secure and online.
Keeping a WordPress website running smoothly and securely can take time and effort that could be better spent on producing content or running your business. That’s where WordPress Care comes in. With reports sent directly to you on a monthly basis or on-demand, you’ll always know what’s going on with your site.
Starting from just £85 a month, WordPress Care takes the hassle out of keeping your site running smoothly by allowing someone else to take care of the repetitive and often mundane tasks of updating plugins, running security checks and scanning your site for vulnerabilities. It also offers remote backups, up-time monitoring and safe updates where I test all updates on a development version of your site before applying them to the live version, so you can be sure the updates and your site will work, first time every time.
Your site will automatically be backed up to a remote server either daily, weekly or monthly depending on your needs. With 7 days worth of backups retained, restoring your site to an earlier version is only one click away.
All your plugins, themes, translations are kept up to date for you. Including WordPress Core updates. Your site is checked before and after the updates to ensure everything is exactly as it should be.
Your site will be scanned on a weekly basis using an advanced performance scan. Any performance issues will be reported and fixed as part of the service. All without you having to lift a finder.
Keeping your site secure is hugely important. Your site will be scanned for vulnerabilities and known security issues weekly. With issues tested and patched as soon as they come to light so you're site is always kept secure.
Comments on your sites posts and pages are automatically managed by a real person. They will either be approved, deleted or reported for spam with steps taken to limit reoccurring spam.
You’ll receive regular reports which details everything that has been done on your website, including manual work performed. The report basic overview of your website’s health, and traffic if linked to Google Analytics.
Your website will be 'pinged' every few minutes to ensure it's still accessible. If it goes down, I'll be automatically notified and will get to work on bringing it back online. All uptime is logged and reported so you always know when you were down.
Your website will be scanned every week looking for any link that leads to a 404 page. Any links that are found will be fixed (where possible) for you. If the page you were linking to is go, I'll look for a suitable alternative.
Take advantage of my technicaly skills with guaranteed development hours every month. Depending on the level of support, you could get 2, 4 or 6 hours dedicated to developing your site or updating it's content.
And if all that wasn't enough, you'll have direct access to me to help with any technical support issues you might be facing, answer your site questions and more.
If your site is powered by WordPress, you can't afford to ignore it!
Did you know that WordPress powers around 28% of the internet? That means it’s likely every third website you visit is a WordPress one. This has made the platform a major target for hackers and the more malicious types. Lucky for us, WordPress does a great job at patching bugs, plugging security holes and making sites run faster. Unfortunately, these fixes rely on the site owner applying them to have any effect.
Most business owners don’t have the time, ability or inclination to monitor and stay on top of these daily updates. That’s where WordPress Care comes in. Even if you install the latest WordPress yourself, update your themes and plugins, there’s still the chance something will break. WordPress care deals with all this for you, in a safe and secure environment, fully testing all updates with your site before rolling them out to ensure compatibility.
