WordPress Hosting & Website Care Plans
Keeping your website up to date, backed up, and secure.
Your website helps position you as a leader in your field. In order to continue at optimal performance and security, your website needs to be on an ongoing website care plan which will protect your investment and offer you peace of mind.
Below are the details of our website care plan, pricing, and frequently asked questions. This proposal is aimed at providing ongoing care and support through a partnership with your business for your WordPress website.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS
Specifically, the ongoing website care needs to fulfill the following business needs:
Communication with the web host on troubleshooting bugs or hosting issues.
Monitoring for any issues during WordPress and plugin updates.
Your website is your digital storefront and like a physical storefront, you want to make sure that all of your assets and information are secure and protected. This plan is a great starting point.
Update WordPress to the latest version
Run regular security and performance scans
Backup website database and site files
Update WordPress plugins to their latest version
Optimize the WordPress database
Perform SPAM & revisions cleanup
Provide a detailed report of updates and findings
This plan contains all of the same services as the Starter Plan but with updates occurring weekly and includes the following additional services.
One hour of support per month included.
Performance checks – I will schedule weekly performance checks and get immediately notified if your website is under-performing. This is great information to have if your business depends on website performance or is paying for search engine optimization. If the performance drops, we will be able to identify why it changed.
Link Monitor – I’ll get automatic checks and alerts for any unresponsive or broken links on the site. This lets me deal timely with any broken links issues and avoid any negative impacts on SEO, user experience or revenue.
Advanced Care Plan
This plan contains all of the same services as the Starter & Professional plans but includes unlimited* updates.
OPTIONAL $100/mo – ADA/WCAG 2.0 compliance: we will make your website compliant with the government’s 508 ADA compliance requirement. The system will scan your site once a day to make sure compliance is being met. Updates will occur once a day.
We will update content (photos, videos, text, blogs), make style changes (css), mobile optimization, and WordPress template modification on an unlimited basis. *Up to 4 hours a month. Does not include total redesigns or plugin development.
Why do I need an ongoing plan when my web host updates my WordPress version?
It is not guaranteed that the mandated updates to WordPress will not break the website, nor that plugins will continue to function if not updated.
For this reason, having a trained web specialist on hand to monitor the website is necessary to update plugins, rollback plugins, replace plugins or even adjust the theme to continue optimal performance.
