WordPress Care Plans

Let me take care of your website.

You focus on your business.

Know that I'll be keeping your website up-to-date, backed up and secure.

Add up to 2 hours of small changes each month.

Your website.

Maybe it’s

  • your online presence,
  • one of your marketing tools,
  • a sales tool, and maybe even
  • your primary source of revenue.

It’s important.

You need it to help run your business, promote your products and services and generate income.

There's a lot involved in making sure that it's secure, backed-up and up-to-date.

What do you need to do to look after your website?

Take Frequent Backups

You need to be taking backups, daily if possible, and making sure they're stored offsite.

The backups your host may take are not enough. If your host takes a backup they will store it in the same place as the files of your website.

If your website gets hacked, those backups will be compromised too.

Make Regular Updates

Your host may set up automatic WordPress updates. Recent WordPress versions can update plugins themselves.

When the WordPress software or a plugin is updated it may break something on your site. If it's done automatically, you probably won't notice. So turn it off.

You need to be in control of updates and check the site in between making the change for each one. You need to know when to update, and when it may be better to wait.

Scan for Security

Make a daily scan of the security of your website to make sure that it has not been hacked. Work out what to do if there are any warnings or something just does not "look right".

Monitor your Website for Downtime

Keep an eye on your site and make sure that it is up and running as expected. Figure out what has gone wrong if it's down, and then fix it.

That's a lot. Can you help?

Of course. Let me look after it for you.

Focus on your business, doing the things you’re good at and enjoy.

I have WordPress Care Plans, details below, that give you the peace of mind that all is being looked after.

Optionally you can add Small Changes.

Small Changes

Small Changes are an add-on to your WordPress Care Plan.

It's for those, well, small changes that can take up to an hour, or two.

Things like:

  • tweaking a footer
  • changing a menu
  • adding a widget
  • adding a blog post
  • checking for broken links
  • proofreading a page or post

WordPress Care Plans

Secure Off-site Backups

I back up the files and database of your website to a secure cloud server at least weekly. On the Better and Best plans this is done every day.

So whatever happens we can get your website back quickly.

WordPress Updates

I update your WordPress core, theme and plugin software once per month. This is done once per week with the Best plan.

Daily Security Scan

We install a firewall and a security plugin and run a daily security scan on your site to check for any vulnerabilities within your WordPress installation.

Spam Comment Cleansing

We delete any spam comments from your WordPress website, prevent future spam comments from being posted and monitor any future comments.

Minimum Service Period

While I hope you'll stay longer you're free to leave the care plan after the minimum service period shown.

The longer period for the Best plan reflects the extra work in providing the service.
