Much like with a car, maintaining a website regularly is vital to ensure that it continues to run optimally.
We can give you peace of mind and handle it for you with our easy maintenance plan, read on to find out how…
Your site is made up of an interconnected combination of custom code, 3rd party plugins and the WordPress core software itself. Just like with any software, the environment the website exists and operates in is constantly changing and the site needs to be updated and improved accordingly.
One of the great advantages of using the Open Source WordPress platform is that we can leverage the work of hundreds of thousands of developers around the world who are all working to improve the platform continually.
Website maintenance is all about implementing those critical updates to your site to keep it current and optimised. These updates cover both performance improvements but also bug fixes and security patches.
Doing regular maintenance is required to make sure your site continues to run well but also reduces the risk and impact of an undesirable event happening, like a hack, compromise or data corruption.
Combined with our backup plans it’s the best way to ensure that your site will continue to perform well and safeguard it against risk.
Our maintenance package covers the following services in a convenient quarterly subscription
We update WordPress core and plugins as well as testing and checking for issues caused by the update.
We take a full backup of your site before conducting maintenance and retain it until the next maintenance round. If you want more frequent and longer lasting backups check out our backup plans.
We use special software to check that the website is performing optimally and make recommendations for improvements as needed.
We will check your site for issues which may be affecting your SEO and talk to you about a solution there.
We generally conduct maintenance on a quarterly basis and scope the cost depending on the site’s complexity.
Whilst applying plugin updates very rarely cause issues, it is possible that changing the code in the site can cause an unforeseeable conflict that has an adverse effect. Issues can range from minor cosmetic changes to severe functional breakages.
In the rare event that an issue does arise we will roll back the update to restore the site to the previously stable state.
Any fixes required are out of scope for this service and we’ll contact you about what’s required to fix the issues and quote for the solution.
Plugin renewal fees
Plugins sometimes require license fee renewals to be updated and those costs are not included in the package. In that event, we will contact you to confirm and approve the costs before going ahead.
