Throughout the month we make periodic updates to the WordPress Core Software, Plugins & Theme.
If there is one thing that needs happen with a WordPress site, it’s keeping your site updated.
Over 90% of all attacks against WordPress websites come from hackers exploiting an outdated and/or insecure plugin or version of WordPress.
Not only do we make these updates for you, we also test them to make sure they are “playing nicely” with the rest of your website. This ensures there are no conflicts between an updated plugin or theme and other parts of your site.
If you decide you would like to take advantage of our WPEngine hosting platform (included in our packages), we will ensure your site has a valid SSL Certificate attached. We will handle the installation.
This means your site will show up as https (not http.) An SSL Certificate keeps sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can access it.
When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to.
If your website does not have an SSL Certificate, visitors might see the dreaded “This site is not secure” screen before entering your site – this tends to be a traffic-killer.
Yes, that’s right, if you want to stay with your current hosting provided, that’s totally fine.
However, we recommend that you take advantage of our WPEngine platform. It’s a “WordPress-specific” hosting platform that has enterprise level security. It’s all included in the package.
It’s also faster than most WordPress servers out there. Speed is a big factor when it comes to Google rankings.
We also provide an SSL certificate so your site shows up as “secure” or under “https” which is critical for visitors to access your website.
We will migrate and test your website from your current hosting provider to your WPEngine server in order to launch the site on the new server.
This has to be one of our clients’ favorite features of our WP Maintenance Services.
You get an executive summary that shows everything we’ve done on your website for the month.
Through this report, we keep you in the loop and provide information about your website’s activity for the month including:
Once we have your site in our system, we will start backing up your website every day.
This simply means you are covered if anything were to happen with your site.
Whether it’s a page that was accidentally deleted, or an outside source gained access to your site, we will have 30 days of backups that can easily be restored to the version from yesterday (or further back)
Just one more reason you can sleep a little easier at night.
We believe that you have the right to cancel our services at any time.
If you sign up for our monthly service and you decide you would like to manage your website in-house or you decide to leave for ANY reason, you can cancel at any time.
We also DO NOT charge a set up fee. Usually all we need is a few pieces of information to access your WordPress website, and we can get you into our system and start doing our job :)
Our onboarding process is simple and quick and we are here to help you along the way
Every day, we will run a speed/performance scan to ensure your ite is running as fast & optimally as possible.
The Performance Check gives you insight into what is happening with your website and how it’s performing.
The scan will tell us all of the different performance factors and what the issues are.
We can see each individual factor and its grade, as well as recommendations on how to improve your website performance.
You will also see these factors and grades in the monthly report you will receive each month.
We have handled the website design for many of our clients – both national clients and smaller businesses.
Whether you need a full website redesign or design services for specific components of your site, we can handle it.
Over the past decade, we have had the honor of working with some well-known names, such as, TED, National Geographic, Adobe, Martha Stewart, Fashionphile and more.
We truly understand website design and how design can affect a visitor’s decision to engage with a website.
While design services are not included in our WP Maintenance Package, we can easily get you a quote on anything you need.
Ever go to your site and it’s down? Worse yet, you don’t know how long it’s been down?
We keep an eye on your website for you & we get sent an instant notification if your website goes down. This allows us to immediately take action and get the site back up before anyone notices.
Our Uptime Monitor saves you time worrying if your website is up and running.
When your WordPress website is down, you’re losing visitors & revenue. Our Uptime Monitor makes sure this doesn’t happen to you.
Whether you need a simple content update or a custom plugin developed for your WordPress website, we can help.
If we were not amazing WordPress developers, we would not be able to offer our WP Maintenance Services.
Our maintenance services sometimes require that we dig deeper into the templates and/or core WordPress code and when we get the opportunity to dig into code, we love to geek out.
We truly understand website development and how WordPress is structured. This allows us make the simplest to the most complex edits to your site (if needed.)

The worst thing about malware is that it could be on your website for months without you even noticing.
You need to be vigilant, proactive, and check regularly for malware and known vulnerabilities. That’s where our Security Check comes in.
Every day, your site is scanned for security issues. This allows us to make sure that your site is clean, and if any files become infected, we will be able to spot them quickly and take action.
Not much to say about this one. Whether you decide that you want to handle your WP updates in-house or on your own, you have 30 days to decide.
If you would like to cancel your WP Maintenance Plan within 30 days of purchase, we will get you a full refund – no questions asked.
