Maintenece Services

After your site is finished, how do you keep it maintained without exhausting your time and energy?

You get a monthly support service.

A monthly support service is great because it keeps your site pristinely maintained and in proper working order—one less thing you have to worry about.

The specifics will need to be determined after your site is running (we custom tailor this to fit your needs) but this will still give you an idea of what’s included:
  • Managed backups
    • (There are risks of not having backups onsite and off-site of your website—backing up your files will ensure their safety).
  • Patching and updating
    • We will keep your website, and all plugins updated when new versions come out.
  • Guaranteed immediate fixing of any security issues
    • Security threats would be rare because the site would be regularly patched, but we would immediately handle any security issues should they arise.
  • Phone, email/live chat support on using the CMS (WordPress)
    • Once staff learn something like WordPress they pick it up quickly but they love to know they won’t be on their own.
  • A monthly report
    • Includes your web statistics—see how the website is performing—a simple summary.
  • Monthly content updates
    • Have any news or timely updates that need to be added to the site? Send them to us at the beginning of the month and we’ll take care of them for you.
