WORDPRESS MAINTENANCE PLAN

Say goodbye to WordPress Maintenance problems

Let  us manage, optimise, monitor and protect your

WordPress website so that you don’t have to!

Why have a WordPress maintenance plan?

Is a WordPress maintenance plan essential? No, but WordPress maintenance is!

WordPress websites have evolved from the ‘set and forget’ philosophy. They need care and attention on a regular basis, whether its updating to prevent security issues or to ensure everything is functioning properly on a daily basis.

You can take care of these essential regular WordPress maintenance tasks yourself, BUT… are you?

So the question should be… who’s currently taking care of those important tasks? You? Somebody else? Nobody?

If the answer is nobody then you could be heading for a disaster with your website! To ensure the smooth running of your WordPress website you have two options; manage your WordPress maintenance yourself or entrust the tasks to experts by investing in our WordPress maintenance plan.

By WordPress maintenance we don’t mean changing the content that people see on your website. It’s the behind the scenes tasks that are all too often neglected or not understood to be essential. Like regularly backing up your website and keeping up-to-date with the core WordPress updates, theme updates and plugin updates, running security scans and so much more. When was the last time you attended to these essential WordPress maintenance tasks?

For example, if your website was hacked today or something went horribly wrong while working on your site, how old is your most recent backup? You do have a backup of your website that you can restore, right?

A WordPress Maintenance Plan provides you with peace of mind knowing we’re taking care of your website while you focus on your business.

Top 3 reasons why people neglect their
WordPress website maintenance

Which one of these applies to you?

Just too damn busy!

It’s on their “To Do” list. Maintaining their WordPress website hovers somewhere near the bottom of that list never quite reaching the top.

Don’t think it’s necessary!

The sites been built and launched on the net, it’s still up and running. They don’t know that WordPress websites break eventually if not looked after.

Worried they’ll break the website

Not everyone is confident maintaining their WordPress website. They worry that they might do something wrong and break their website.

Websites are NOT zero maintenance!

The ‘set and forget‘ approach is a really bad idea. So who is going to take care of the essential regular WordPress maintenance tasks that are required on your website?

WordPress hacker

Hackers look for neglected WordPress websites!

Having your website hacked can undo years of hard work, ruin your reputation and be costly to fix.

If a site is compromised, the clean-up can be extremely arduous, especially if it goes unnoticed for a long time and there are no recent ‘clean’ backups to restore from. Often the only way to fully recover is to re-upload your entire site from scratch. All of this will take a lot of time and effort – and if you’re not doing it yourself, it might cost you a lot to have your developer set things straight again.

WHAT DOES OUR WORDPRESS MAINTENANCE PLAN COVER?

Core WordPress updates

Never be afraid to update to the latest released version of WordPress. We’ll take care of it for you with post update quality assurance tests. We’ll roll back to a working version of WordPress, should something go awry with the upgrade.

If an update fails, or your website crashes, it’s imperative to have a recent backup of your site. We’ll backup your website daily and store the backup for 31 days. Have peace of mind knowing that we can easily restore your website at any time.

WordPress Maintenance Plan
Do I need a Maintenance Plan for my website?

Your WordPress website needs regular maintenance to perform as it should. Updates are always being made to WordPress itself as well as themes and plugins, and keeping your WordPress installation up-to-date is extremely important, especially since so many WordPress updates are security fixes and patches that will prevent potential exploits of the vulnerabilities of your website or blog.

Because WordPress is so widespread, it is constantly being targeted by hackers who will try to break into your site and wreak havoc. As soon the WordPress developers find these vulnerabilities, they create patches to fix them, leading to regular updates that will keep your WordPress installation clean and safe. If you do not keep your WordPress installation current, you risk becoming the next victim to malicious attacks that can be easily prevented by keeping your WordPress code up-to-date.

Can I cancel anytime?

The WordPress maintenance plan will run continuously but may be cancelled at any time. If it’s not working out for you, no problem! The Maintenance Plan can be stopped at any time.

Are there any hidden or additional fees?

No! The only price you pay is the monthly or yearly subscription for the WordPress maintenance plan.

What happens if my site gets hacked or breaks?
The whole purpose of our maintenance plans is preventative care, so we hope to prevent anything from happening. However, in the case your website gets hacked or breaks we will be on standby ready to get everything back up and running quickly. We cannot promise your website will not be hacked but can promise we will do everything in our power to prevent it, as well as assist in the restoration and cleanup of your website with one of our backups.
What if my site is not hosted by Emedia Hosting?

That’s not a problem, we can still maintain your website. All hosts are different, some better than others. Ideally we would like you to host your website with us to ensure that it’s fast, secure.

What if a plugin is no longer supported?
When a plugin is no longer supported by it’s developer it’s likely that at some point the plugin will become incompatible with your website. This can result in features of your website relating to this plugin not working. In some cases a website can become broken and not function at all. Our advice is to replace plugins that are no longer supported and updated by their developer. We will do our best to help you find an alternative plugins that you can use.
What does the 30 minute telephone support cover?

This is intended to support you and make you feel more comfortable rolling up your sleeves to make simple changes.

What are these simple changes? Things like making edits to content, uploading a plugin, resizing/changing text, resizing images or writing a blog post.

What is not simple? Things that require custom development, designing (or redesigning) a graphic, creating any new content or anythingthat requires us to access your website and make the changes for you. That would come under web design.

Do you offer a money back guarantee?

The WordPress Maintenance Plan comes with a full money-back guarantee. If you are not completely delighted with the way your website is being looked after, you can request a refund up to one month’s subscription.

What if I have more than one website?

The WordPress Maintenance Plan fee mentioned above is per website. If you have multiple websites we are happy provide you with a discounted price covering all of your website.

What do I need to provide for you to get started?

You’ll receive a welcome email with information on your plan and details about how to securely send us your login credentials. Once you send login information for your WordPress dashboard and hosting provider, we’ll have your plan fully implemented in 24-48 hours.

Lastly, we take security very seriously and take extreme care with our clients confidential information.

We also understand how much trust it takes to share this level of access to your website with us and we don’t take this trust lightly.

Very helpful, understanding and most importantly jargon free. Very well priced, but again really happy to explain the facts behind the jargon. highly recommend

Wanting to be in control of my new website and being completely green to website building, short of how to purchase a domain name I didn’t have a clue! In stepped Justin. He helped me by setting up the hosting, recommending the best programme for a starter, pointing me to online learning and being on hand when I accidentally removed something I didn’t mean to. An all round fantastic service and I highly recommend whether you want to have it built for you or are building it yourself and just need hosting!

Never any issues with emedia. Always there when advice is needed. Certainly would recomend

Had a fascinating complimentary consultation with Justin Ormerod from emedia this week, looking at the hosting and performance of my blog site. Justin uploaded my site onto his hosting platform, and the performance went from a F to a B. It felt like getting a bad school report! 😆 Thank Justin for taking so much time out to do a back office walkthrough. I learnt a lot. A few years ago I had an issue where a file or plugin was affecting the appearance and how data was displayed, and it wasn't obvious what was causing the problem because on the face of it, everything seemed to be correctly installed by me and working OK. Justin went into 'forensic investigation mode' and found the obscure piece of code. It really was a case of going above and beyond.

I have been a client of Emedia for the past 2 years. Justin designed my website and manages the hosting of it. During this time he has made excellent suggestions on how to best maximise the look and function of the website. He is responsive and approachable and carefully explains the more techy stuff, so you don't feel silly asking questions and better still, can understand the replies. He is a safe pair of hands for your website. I have no hesitation in recommending Justin and Emedia.

Over the past few years I have found that Justin at Emedia has carried out a very good and reliable service across a wide range of web based services

Excellent service, patient and very helpful

I had a great experience setting up my company website the whole process was quick and smooth and I’ve had a great business response since the website was updated and managed on our behalf. Overall excellent service and I would happily recommend
