Hosting, Backups, Security & Maintenance

We provide WordPress website hosting, security, and maintenance, as well as weekly, offsite backups. This will keep your website functional, safe, and secure.

Website Maintenance

All WordPress websites requires website security and maintenance. The website software must be kept up to date at all times. This includes the WordPress core, your theme (that controls the look of the site), and your plugins (additional software that adds functionality).

Website Hosting

We’ll host you on our own dedicated server, managed by an outstanding team.

Weekly, Automated, Off-site Backups

We backup your website to Dropbox, and store 8 copies at a time.

Triple-layer Website Security

We check to make sure each step of your website setup is secure.

WordPress Software Maintenance

We keep your licenses and core, theme and plugin software up to date.

Why is keeping your software updated so important?

The WordPress core software, themes and plugins are regularly updated by their respective developers. You will need valid licenses (usually paid annually) for any paid software you use on your website. These licenses allow you access to the latest software updates available, as well as support from the developers themselves. As the developers update their software, they add new functionality or design elements, as well as fix security holes as they occur. It is vital that you have access to these updates so your website is as functional and secure as possible.

Websites that are outdated and not regularly maintained will eventually break, or get hacked. Maintaining your website software is a critical step in the fight against functionality errors (caused by software updates) and potential hacking. It’s our job to ensure this doesn’t happen, or to fix it if it does. No one can guarantee your website will never be hacked, but we do our best to ensure it’s as protected as possible.

All our packages include:

  • Monthly website hosting
