Why do I need WordPress hosting and maintenance?

WordPress Requirements

WordPress requires a domain (http://yourwebsite.com), a host, and ongoing maintenance.

DOMAIN

Your domain is your website address.

You purchase your domain. Then I provide simple one-step directions to help you connect your domain to your host before we begin.

HOST

Your host is the storage space/server for your website. The host powers all of your pages, graphics, themes, files, etc. that make your website work. It’s important to choose quality hosting for optimum performance.

You can choose to bundle a WordPress package with my hosting services for a “done for you” experience. As a perk, you’ll receive discounted hosting for your first year. Hosting renews annually at current market rate.

You may also choose to provide your own hosting. You will need to connect your domain to your host.

MAINTENANCE

Just like routine maintenance on your car or home, WordPress runs best with regular updates and care. In addition to daily security monitoring, your website will also need weekly, monthly, and annual care.

You can choose to perform your own maintenance or purchase my care plan.

With the purchase of a care plan, you also receive priority email support. You know those “How do I… ?” WordPress or email marketing questions you keep Googling? Email me instead and receive a reply within 24 business hours (and typically much faster).

What’s included in your WordPress maintenance plan?

This is primarily a monitoring and prevention service. We will work together to protect your site to make it as a secure and stable as possible. You will be notified if you have site maintenance or security issues that need additional attention beyond this care plan.

  • Daily Backups: I maintain 90 days of off-site backups to restore your website to a previous versions, if needed.
  • 24/7 Security Monitoring: I monitor your site for potential vulnerabilities so you’re alerted at the first sign of trouble.
  • 24/7 Uptime Monitoring: I receive notifications if your website goes down to help you get it back online ASAP.
  • Daily Link Monitoring: There’s nothing worse than “page not found” errors. With this service, I’ll notify you of any broken links and provide directions to resolve them.
  • Quick Fixes: In addition to all routine care, I provide fixes to common WordPress problems (up to 30 minutes per month).
  • Weekly Updates: Plugins are frequently updated to newer versions that have enhanced features and/or security patches. Occasionally themes and WordPress Core also receive updates. This service will keep your website up-to-date every week, as appropriate for your site.
  • Monthly Report: Receive an at-a-glance report that recaps the status of your website so you always stay informed.
  • Priority Email Support: You know those “How do I… ?” WordPress or email marketing questions you keep Googling? Email me instead and receive a reply within 24 business hours (and typically much faster).
