WordPress Managed Website Maintenance Plans

We offer several WordPress managed website maintenance plans / web support packages to meet the needs of your organization. Our Watch Dog, Big Dog and Top Dog Management plans all include our managed WordPress hosting plan, though you do not need to host with us to have us manage you to take advantage of these managed website plans.

We of course cover basic maintenance such as plugin updates and security updates. However what makes us unique is the length we go to not only protect and maintain your website but actually support it, support you and your organization. This not just maintenance plan but a comprehensive website support plan.

WordPress Weekly Updates

This is not just monthly website management, we are working on your site weekly. Managing website updates, keeping up to date with WordPress software updates is important to the security and longevity of your website. We take care of this on a weekly basis. We then test for compatibility and usability to make sure all updates were non-disruptive.

How long do I have to commit for?

All of our web maintenance plans are monthly, and you can cancel any time with a 30 day notice.

What will you need from us?

At minimum we will need the following:

  • WordPress administrator access
  • FTP and database access (control panel access is good too)

If we are going to migrate website we will need:

  • The domain’s DNS records or access to an individual who can make changes on your behalf

Do you offer any guarantees?

We guarantee our work and if by chance we get something wrong, we will work (and work) to get it right. We are only human after all.

In terms of money, if you simply decide you don’t like us in the first 30 days, we will refund your first payment in full and cancel your account (this never happens).

And of course, security. There is no such thing as a totally “secure” website, server, or computer – only one that is protected in the best possible way. Though we can’t guarantee your site will never experience a security issue. What we can guarantee is that we will do our best to resolve the situation as quickly as possible at no additional cost to you

What are typical response times?

Utilizing our 24/7 ticket system we are alerted 24/7 of all support queries. Initial response time during business hours is typically less than 2 hours. Urgent requests (down sites, security issues or failing critical feature) are handled as fast and to the best of our ability. This includes weekends and evenings.

If I need support, how do I get a hold of you?

  • Online Support Ticket System
  • Phone
  • Email

What if I sign up for a plan without unlimited support, can I still get help?

Yes. The fundamental difference between the unlimited plans and those without is that support is billed in at our current hourly rate in 15-minute increments. Support is still available to you.
