Did you know that hundreds of bots are doing their best to breach your website right now, as you read this? They are trying to exploit known weaknesses in plugins, themes and WordPress itself. Take a look which ones are hit today: https://wpscan.com/plugins.
Let's say you don't update the plugins in weeks. The Vulnerability database publishes the weakness, and the proof of concept. Now a lot less skilled attacker knows exactly where to hit. It is right there, published! Even worse, a bot does all this automatically.
We are using premium top-quality incremental update solutions, that make lot less strain on your server. You don't pay any yearly subscriptions for the solution itself.
There is no excuse in not updating your production and/or all testing sites continuously. But if you do it just like that, the site can go down. What a nightmare. So you have to do it securely, making sure new versions are not conflicting with other plugins and themes.
That's where we come in. Your time is too valuable to think about this. Go do something more productive.
Security is much more than updating the site. There are lots of things that we need to do in order to harden the website's security and to keep an eye on it. We will do this using our premium security solutions. You don't pay any subscriptions for them.
Just like a car, a website also needs maintenance for it to perform at its best. We will use our premium solutions to do it, covering Database optimization, Caching and other tricks to make the site fast. Have you browsed around this site? is it fast? So will be yours too. Speed is huge factor for SEO, UX and conversions. It literally brings more money to the bottom line with every second of loading time.
We will perform initial speed optimization if necessary. We won't use obsolete methods. If your site has HTTP/2, we'll adapt to that. Speed test tools often talk nonsense. Please note that you may have bottlenecks in form of bad hosting or a bad theme. We will recommend what to do to improve the performance, and squeeze out the maximum from the current situation.
Yet again, we will be using best and most expensive tools for the job, but they will not be on you to pay for them. Here is an example of our optimized websites:
Content & Design Updates
If you need to add content to your site on regular or occasional basis, we can do that for you. This is especially important on pages, where adding new content throws the design out of balance. We have seen it many times: website owners try to add or remove something, and the whole design suddenly looks broken.
Not only that, what looks great today will look outdated in few years. Design standards are moving forward (sometimes backwards) as well.
There is one more important thing: technology moves forward. You may have a modern theme, but in few years it will be very outdated. if the authors are good, they will update the theme regularly, but will you follow? Also, even if you update the theme regularly, there comes the time when the legacy backwards compatibility code becomes a burden. That will be a point when you need to basically redo the website and it may be costly. If you have that done on the fly, chances are that the site won't have to go through a total technical overhaul.
Content & Design updates are an additional, optional service.
How does it work?
Simple. You pay us our reasonable monthly fee, and we'll be taking care of everything.
If you decide to terminate our partnership, all the premium solutions will still be in place but you will have to pay licenses for all of them in order to keep them updated, if you still want them.
So far no client ever did that. You can read our project overviews and case studies. All of them are on our maintenance plans. You don't have to be our website client to have maintenance with us.
If you decide to take our Prepaid consulting package, we can combine it with website maintenance at discounted rate.
