How is the Website Maintenance Time Counted and What’s Included?

Plan 1A and Plan 1

  • Web Edits/Website Changes:  Website edits time covers updates to your site that do not require custom programming or graphic design. So for example resizing and uploading an image onto a page is covered, but designing a new logo is not. Configuring an existing option of a plugin is covered, but developing/installing a new plugin with new functionality is not. Website edit time can also be used for time required to restore a backup or address a security vulnerability discovered by a security scan.
  • Face to Face/Phone Calls:   Time includes phone consultation time or face to face meetings;
  • Update plugins as new versions are released: What is a plugin you ask?  A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that have been added to YOUR WordPress They have extend functionality and/or add features to YOUR WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. As new versions of a plugin becomes available – YOUR WordPress Website will indicate in the Dashboard that there are updates needed.  Failing to regularly update YOUR WordPress site will undoubtedly result in a site failure at some point.
  • Weekly website backups:  Using a WordPress Plugin (in addition to if your Hosting Account provides regular backups) your site will be backed up in its entirety on a regular weekly schedule.
  • Update WordPress core if required or recommended for security purposes:  WordPress, which is a FREE content management system (CMS), is now the most dominant CMS on the market — standing head and shoulders above the competition with a good chunk of the market share.    It is critical for security and site functionality that YOUR website have the most recent version of WordPress installed.  Failing to regularly update YOUR WordPress Core will undoubtedly result in a site failure at some point.    Here is a link about WordPress Statistics:  https://www.whoishostingthis.com/compare/wordpress/stats/
  • Maintain PHP Script compatibility with required plugins.  What is PHP: PHP is an open-source, server-side scripting and programming language that's primarily used for web development. The bulk of the core WordPress software is written in PHP, which makes PHP a very important language for the WordPress community.
  • Optimize the website and database for performance:  When operating a website, many people don’t bring much significance to getting rid of unwanted data. For example, they don’t pay attention to the number of low-quality plugins that they’ve installed or pictures they’ve added by mistake that haven’t been deleted afterward. They also keep forgetting to empty their trash folder when deleting a page, as well as many other things that interfere with the website’s performance. Like this, all this unnecessary data keeps piling up, in turn making one’s website slower and harder to use.    With a WordPress Website - optimizing your database is an absolute necessity if you want to have a fast website. Even when you think that there’s nothing in your database that requires removal, you should still make sure to clean your cache, as lots of deleted files and plugins can still leave some traces behind them. You shouldn’t forget to delete your spam and trash comments either.  Since plenty of unnecessary data piles up in your WordPress database with time, It is good practice to clean it up regularly for the best results. Also, checking your website speed from time to time can prove useful as well.
  • 24/7 Security Monitoring using a WordPress Security Plugins and Weekly Security Scans for Malware: Through the use of a few GREAT WordPress Security Plugin, YOUR website is monitored 24/7 for hacking, intrusion, attempted logins, and malware.   We are notified immediately of any unusual or concerning activity.
  • Submit website sitemap to the Google Search Console at least twice monthly:  The goal is to have Google “Crawl” the website OFTEN and have it be indexed by Google.  Crawling is the process by which Googlebot discovers new and updated pages to be added to the Google index.   This is how YOUR website finds in place in the Google Page Ranking system.  
  • How Many Website Does This Include?:  Maintenance is per single WordPress installation. If you have multiple sites that require maintenance contact us for custom packages.
