Add our Security+ option
If you opt for our weekly or monthly maintenance packages, you can also choose to add our Security+ option to it.. for just £2/month.
This upgrade adds additional WordPress database cleanup options, including database optimization, removes spam/trash comments/posts, removes unused post/comment metadata, and post revisions (choose how many revisions you wish to retain). Making your WordPress database that little bit cleaner and faster.
In addition to the database cleanup, this option includes security vulnerability updates. If an update to WordPress, or one of your installed themes or plugins is released to patch a known security vulnerability, we will not wait for the next weekly or monthly update cycle, we will install that security update on your site in the next daily update schedule. *
* remaining released updates will be installed in their standard weekly/monthly update cycle.
Why Get WordPress Maintenance?
Secures Your Website
It’s easy to forget to create a backup before installing an update, only to find the update breaks your site, and you have no way to get it back…
Auto-updates is an option, but it’s impossible to test every combination of wordpress, theme and plugin.. any single update might break your site without warning, and with auto-updates, you never know when that update might get installed..
Our maintenance packages avoids all that.. you know exactly when any updates would be installed, and updates are never installed without a backup being made first. We also track what versions are installed, what’s updated and when.. if there is a problem, it’s easy to go back.. and we manually check after an update to confirm it’s worked.
Saves Your Time.
Time is Money
Its time consuming enough to create new content for your website, or to manage orders/bookings, do you really want to spend more time managing the WordPress software as well?
You can’t just ignore updates though, the longer your site is left outdated the more security vulnerabilities might be found, and hackers are never going to stop trying to break into sites.
Updates also help to keep your site running faster, and a faster site attracts more visitors… and generates more sales.
With our maintenance packages, all that time and hassle you would spend keeping WordPress updated would all be handled by us. Leaving you free to focus on what’s actually important to you.
Choosing the right option for your website.
Ideally, maintenance would be performed every day, however, we understand that such an expense may not be justifiable for the size/popularity/purpose of a particular website.
If your website is just a personal site, for a hobby or interest, or is just a site that doesn’t often get new content, then you should be safe enough with a monthly maintenance package..
if the site does ever get compromised, or broken, it’s easy enough to restore the last update backup without any further issue.
For a site that receives regular new content, gets a decent amount of visitors, or is your businesses window to the world, we’d recommend at least weekly maintenance.
If your site is business critical, takes multiple orders / bookings daily, or is your main source of income, it should be protected as much as possible, so for these sites, we would highly recommend you opt for daily maintenance.
At the very least, for a business/income critical site, ensure it is backed up daily (easy to configure within our own hosting control panel. And if daily maintenance is too much.. perhaps try our monthly or weekly packages with the security+ option
