MONTHLY UPDATE SERVICES

Keep your site up to date and get the peace of mind that comes with having a dedicated designer and developer on your team.

What if your hosting provider shut down tomorrow? Would you have a way to restore your site?

It’s a scene straight out of an online entrepreneur’s horror movie, right? I have seen this happen way too many times.

All that techy stuff like scheduled backups, updating WordPress and plugins is so boring that it’s probably been at the bottom of your to-do list for awhile right? I mean, it’s not something that is on fire right now so it’s not urgent.

If you fail to plan you plan to fail

Let me take care of all this stuff for you so you can get back to being your fabulous, carefree (mostly!) self.

THE “BACK IT UP” monthly plan

WordPress backups & updates

  • Update to latest version of WordPress and check site for any performance issues

WHY DO YOU NEED THIS?

Keep your site safe and secure from hackers (yes, really)

WordPress releases around 25 updates to the platform each year. It is crucial to run the most recent version of WordPress in order to keep your site safe and secure.

Hackers and other ne'er do wells are always trying to find ways to send you spam or place malicious code into your site. These WordPress updates help to combat that, in addition to improving performance and adding new features.

Can't I just set up an auto-update?

Yes, you can set your site to auto update to the latest version of WordPress but that is risky business.

Most WordPress sites, yours included, run on a combination of plugins. Plugins are written by independent WordPress users and therefore do not always play nice with WordPress updates. If your site is set to auto-update, but your plugin author went on permanent vacation, the update could break something on your site leaving you with no way to fix it!

This monthly maintenance package guards against this happening and gives you peace of mind that your site will always be up and running in tip top shape. You can focus on running your business and won’t have to drop everything to figure out why your site is returning an error at 2am.

Can't I just set up an auto-backup?

Yes, there are plugins that will backup your site automatically, but as they are automated they could fail or be deleted at any moment and you may not even notice.

We will store a backup of your site on a cloud server as well as sending it to you so that if something happens to your computer or your cloud storage space, you always have a second backup.

A backup is important because you and your team are going to be tinkering around in your site to create blog posts, update copy etc. and may accidentally press the red eject button! This backup ensures you will always be able to restore to a version of your site less than a month old and be up and running again in no time. Read: it will save you HOURS and DAYS of lost time should the nightmare scenario happen and your site crashes.

I want more stuff, what else you got?

We also check to make sure your site is still looking fabulous on mobile, tablet and desktop after all these changes and updates. One wrong move and your whole site could require a magnifying glass to see it on a phone! We make sure that doesn’t happen and that your audience has access to your website on the go 24/7. No automatic update/backup plugin will do THAT for you!
