We take a granular backup of your website and store in in a secure cloud storage facility giving you version control and security.

Core system regular updates

WordPress regularly updates their core system; we take the time to test the update and then if we are happy to impliment it on your website.

Monthly routine plugin updates

Plugins are small tools that give you functionality within your WordPress website. The developers of these plugins from time to time release updates.  We then check and test these updates to make sure they run well on your WordPress website.

Monthly administration of spam comments

If you have blog posts on your WordPress website by default people can leave comments, unfortunately there are also a lot of spam comments, we purge these monthly.

Monthly contact form tests

It is important to know if you are getting enquiries from your website, we perform a test to make sure you are getting the emails from your website.

Free Secure certificate

You are probably aware of the little padlock seen in the address bar of a site. Google now penalises websites without a secure certificate. We install and manage a secure certificate for you as part of our maintenance package.

Weekly firewall and hack check

Using some advanced software in your WordPress website we can view reports on attempted hacks that the software stopped and block those numbers.

Alongside our regular proactive maintenance, we also support your website and help if things do go wrong, all you need to do is call us and we will fix it.

We do typically like to host the WordPress websites as we can then ensure some of the more technical elements of the website can also be managed, however some of our maintenance clients do host elsewhere.
