WordPress website maintenance plans

Minimise your risk, get tech help when you need it, and sleep like a baby.

Fact: someone’s gotta maintain your site

Paying for website maintenance is a pain in the you-know-what. But we can think of a few things that are more painful…

  • Having your website go down without a backup
  • Getting hacked because your security was nonexistent
  • Having to blunder through another WordPress update on your own

Winging your website maintenance is risky business. Keeping your site professionally maintained (ideally by the people who built it) is the best way to keep your site online, healthy, and up-to-date. That’s where our website maintenance packages come in.

Everything you need for a healthy website

Fast hosting

We put your site on high-performing, modern infrastructure so your site can run fast with close to 100% uptime.

Software & plugin updates

When new versions of WordPress or your site plugins are released, we maximise security by making your updates quickly. And we take care of any conflicts that may arise.

Content updates

You’re welcome to update your content yourself, but if you don’t have time or you don’t feel confident to DIY, we’re here to help. We can add blogs, update images, and change your wording.

Bug fixes

Solid security, premium software, and regular updates should mean very few bugs. But if something breaks, we’ll be here to help fix it.

Security

Our premium security software includes a firewall that protects your site from vulnerabilities, malicious bots, and spam. We monitor your site for potential issues so we can fix them quickly.

Backups

With regular backups and copies of your site, we can quickly restore it if it goes down or something breaks.

Enquire about a web design and maintenance package

We’re not big risk takers (you won’t catch us jumping out of a plane any time soon). That’s why we only host and manage sites designed by us. So if you’d like us to design and manage your website, please send through an application to work together (it's quick!) then we can organise a chat.

Support when you need it

What happens when you need a content update or have a question about your site? Here’s our process…

Request support via our 24/7 online ticketing system

We’ll send an update once we’ve seen your request.

We make the updates

We get to work updating your site as requested. Priority 1 issues are handled within 24 hours. Other updates are handled within 10 business days.

We’ll let you know when we’re done

We’ll send you an email notification with all the details so you can make sure you’re happy with everything.

FAQs about our website maintenance plans

We’ve designed our website maintenance packages to make your website experience as smooth as possible for you, while also providing a quality service. That’s why we prefer to host your site on our servers. However, if you’d like to manage your own hosting, we recommend Kinsta, WP Engine, and Cloudways – and can provide you with maintenance and support via these platforms. If you have another host in mind, send us an email and we’ll let you know if they meet our requirements for speed, security, ease of use, and reliability. If they don’t, you’ll need to either choose a different host or find another company to manage and maintain your website.

The purpose of our care plans is to provide preventative care so that your website doesn’t get hacked or go offline. But occasionally, something could happen to take your site offline (it can happen to even the biggest, most secure websites). If this happens, we will work to get everything back up and running as quickly as possible.

You could ask us to:

  • Add or schedule a blog post
  • Update a few images
  • Update some copy/wording on 1-2 pages

Any task that goes beyond the scope of “content updates” or will take longer than 15 minutes will be considered a new project. In this case, we’ll provide you a separate quote so you know exactly what it’ll cost.

If you have used all of your tasks for the month, we’ll let you know. Any extra tasks can wait until the following month when your job count resets, or we can provide you with a quote to get them done sooner.

If you want to make all the content updates yourself, the short black package is probably right for you. If you’d like just a few updates here and there, you’ll love the standard latte. If you have a bigger site and/or you’d like one or two content updates done for you each week, go for the double shot cap.

No. Updating your content does not include writing content or sourcing images for you. We simply edit your site to add the content you’ve provided, based on your instructions. If you need content creation (like blogging, copywriting, and graphics) we may be able to offer this as a separate service.

At the end of each billing cycle, we’ll send you a report that includes details on the maintenance done, plus the overall state and health of your website. It will look a little bit like this.

You’ll need to sign a proposal before going ahead, but we bill month-to-month and you can cancel at any time.

Yes. Just let us know and we’ll move you to your preferred plan. Any time remaining in the current billing month will be prorated.

If your website is hosted elsewhere, we will continue providing services until the end of the billing month. If your website is hosted with us, then we will provide a full file and database backup of your website to move elsewhere. We may be able to assist with the move (depending on your new provider) for an additional fee.

So many reasons. You’re busy running your business, serving customers and clients. You don’t have time to deal with website updates, security, and more. Our website hosting and maintenance also includes extra security, backup, and monitoring features that would cost a lot to purchase or subscribe to on your own – we make them available to our clients for a fraction of the price (it’s included in your package).

Bandwidth refers to the total amount of data transferred. For example, if one person visits four pages on your site, and each page loads around 1mb of data, a total of 4mb of data is transferred.

Each website is different and the amount of bandwidth you need will depend on the type/size of data your users are downloading. For example, if a 4-page website averages 1mb per page, 100GB of bandwidth will cater to approximately 25,000 monthly visitors. The bandwidth allocated to each of our hosting and maintenance packages will be plenty for most small business websites.

Storage is the total amount of space allocated to storing your website on our servers.

It’ll depend on the size of your site, features/plugins, and media hosted on your site (usually big media files are hosted externally). Our hosting and maintenance packages include enough storage for most small business websites, but if you need some extra space, we’ll let you know what we recommend.

Don’t worry. We won’t cut you off! We’ll let you know if your monthly usage has exceeded our limits and will move you onto an upgraded plan for the next month. Or we might look at other solutions to cost-effectively help you get more from your storage and bandwidth. But if you’re in that position, it probably means you’re getting a lot of traffic, so it’s a good problem to have.
