What You Get

UPDATES: 2x every month, (1st & 15th), I will log into your site and make sure all themes and plugins are up to date. In the event that a plugin update interrupts or changes the effectiveness of that plugin, I will research to find a suitable substitute or make appropriate changes to address the issue. If any work resulting from updates wildly exceeds 1 hour (including excessive phone time/support), there will be additional charges.

BACKUPS: I back up your site and send the files to a secure offsite location. You do not want your site backups sent to your host, where your site is kept, because if your server goes down, so does access to your backups. 2 schedules for backup will be created: 1. Database Only, 2.Database and WordPress files

SECURITY:
• I will review all usernames and passwords to make sure they are smart and secure.
• I will rotate the WordPress security keys
• I will harden your file permissions
• I will install a selection security plugins tailored for your site for added protection.

Possible snafus when a plugin gets updated:

  • plugin update breaks the site
  • updated plugin doesn’t perform the way it used to
  • plugin is abandoned (no longer being supported by) it’s author. This means as time moves on, and other updates are happening, this plugin will not be be protected by future hacks.
