Your First and Last Line of Defense:
Website maintenance if your first line of defense against bad bots and hackers. No matter what platform you decide to host with, there is always the risk that it can become compromised with malware, adware or a destructive virus. While we try our best to minimize your exposure to all the nastiness out there, the hackers are smarter than you might think and can usually infiltrate any system. WordPress is a particularly complex platform that requires regular website maintenance to keep your site safe. A new virus could be unleashed any day and if your site is not up to date, you could experience prolonged downtime or in the worst case, a complete loss of data.
Most WordPress CMS sites run 20 to 30 “plugins” or functions that are in the form of individual software packages. These packages are updated regularly and we keep them at the top versions and watch for hook conflicts. We also perform regular backups of files and databases and work continuously to improve security and reduce spam email and spammy web forms.
Nothing is worse than discovering you site has become sick with a virus. The worst indication is when Google’s own search page displays a big red banner claiming your site is infected. What do you do? Call Us, we’ll be happy to take a look and investigate the infection and find a fast solution.
Ongoing Website Maintenance:
We can optionally include an appropriate amount of administration time in your hosting fees to cover these administrative maintenance tasks. Our ongoing annual site maintenance service is equivalent to about 40 hours per year. Annual Maintenance package is
$500 ($250 for a limited time), billed annually.
