WordPress Monthly Maintenance

All WordPress maintenance plans are billed monthly with no long term contract.

WordPress Support Includes:

  • Business quality web hosting plus email and a free secure certificate.
  • Monthly updates of WordPress core code and plugins. (If there is a patch released with a serious vulnerability, it will be patched immediately)
  • Monthly backups of all code are made, weekly backups of the database.
  • Full code and database back ups are made before monthly updates are made.

Your WordPress website will be fully secured when maintenance services are first purchased. A security review for potential new vulnerabilities will be done monthly.

When I update any WordPress core code, plugins or theme, a full back up of the site is always generated.  A copy of the website is made and updates are first applied on the copy site. If after reviewing the website code and updates did not cause any errors or changes in how the website displays,  then I apply changes to your live site.  Being in a situation where you just crashed your site you don’t have a backup or know what to do to fix it is no fun.

Before I make any updates, I also review the developer’s change log explaining the reasons for the update. Are there new features, bug fixes, or security patches? I won’t always update a plugin or update the WordPress core just because a new update is available.

Through my professional experiences, I will make an informed decision if the code needs updated at that time. Whenever you make code changes, you risk creating new problems. Some show up immediately, some take time before you notice.  Minimizing this risk is something to consider.

Why Hire a Freelance WordPress Developer for WordPress Updates?

wordpress udpatesUpdating WordPress is easy right?  The button says updates available, all you have is click the update button. How hard can that be?? Yep. That’s the easy part.

What comes next can be the challenge. You can hold your breath and hope nothing breaks.  If it does, then what? Do you have a backup to roll back to?  Did you review the reason for the update? Is it compatible with the current version of WordPress you are running?

Most of the time, an update goes smoothly. Often people contact me in a panic because their site is now down after an update. They expect me to drop everything I am doing to “fix it right now”.  Some times that’s simply impossible. If the client did not make a full backup first, then it could potentially be impossible.   Having a WordPress expert on hand to take care of type website maintenance can take a little bit of stress out of your day.
