Weekly theme, plugin and core WP updates
Keeping your website up-to-date is a vital step in securing your site from vulnerabilities created from outdated plugins and themes. Once a week (during downtime hours), I update your plugins and themes.
Some themes and plugins create vulnerabilities in the WordPress environment, however, adding a firewall will make hacking more difficult for those with malicious intent.
* It is important to note that no website is 100% safe, and even the strongest of sites (Facebook, Google and T-Mobile in 2018) can be breached.
In the event that your site is hacked or infected with malware, I will be notified and we’ll discuss the actions that must be taken.
* I do not personally remove malware from websites. I prefer to leave that to the professionals in the security field, however, I can point you in the right direction or go through the process for you at my hourly rate of $70/hr.
Daily Restorable Backups and Weekly Safe Backups
In worst case scenarios, a site or complete server can be compromised. I keep daily, cloud-based restorable backups of your site. Rarely, a new plugin or theme update can cause errors within different functionalities and tools. I back up your site right before these updates take place as a precaution. These are called Safe Backups.
* Most often, backup restoration is a simple click-of-the-button process and this is included with the service, however, if your website requires time-consuming, complex solutions, I must charge my hourly rate of $75/hr.
If your website goes down, I’ll be notified and make you aware of the situation, and we’ll discuss further action.
* If a website goes down, this maintenance plan does not cover the process required to get your site back up, unless that includes a simple backup restore.
This includes a set of plugins that allow me to track the technical performance of your website and make suggestions.
This report will include a brief summary of the monthly activities of any of the subscribed services above.
THE PRICE OF THIS MAINTENANCE SERVICE DOES NOT INCLUDE CONTENT ADDITIONS, DESIGN CHANGES OR WEBSITE FIXES.
