Is it worth investing in website support?
Well, that depends on how much you value your time. Website management isn’t for beginners. For example’s sake, let’s say you spend two hours each month on maintaining your website – how much has that cost you in terms of client work you’ve missed out on? If you charge your time at £50/hour, that’s easy: £100. If you charge £100/hour, it’s £200.
Once you have factored this cost in, outsourcing your website support makes financial sense. WordPress updates (core, theme, and plugins) can appear to be easy tasks (all you do is click the “Update” button, surely?!) but if you apply an incompatible update, you can break your website entirely. Not only can this leave you without a website, it can leave it vulnerable to hackers.
Let the professionals handle website management and go back to what you do best, running your business.

WordPress, Theme & Plugin updates
WordPress updates. We will keep an eye on this daily. It is important for us (as developers) to do this, as updates can occasionally break things. We will do compatibility tests before applying updates, to ensure nothing breaks.
Keeping all your plugins updated. Plugins are one of the most vulnerable parts of WordPress, not only to external hackers but to malicious or greedy programmers. While we only use reputable plugins, it’s important to make sure these plugins are kept updated, just in case a vulnerability is being addressed in the update. Again, it’s important for us (as developers) to do this, as updates can sometimes break things.
Theme updates. Similar to the WordPress core, sometimes an update to your website theme might not be compatible with a plugin or a setting on your website. We will test compatibility and fix any issues that arise before applying updates.
Daily Security & Malware checks
Everyone wants a secure, malware-free website. When we build your website, we provide you with a website which is exactly that – secure and malware-free. Our security packages ensure your website stays that way.
We will take daily back-ups of your website and databases and store them safely off-site (using Amazon Cloud). We will also keep 14 days of back-ups for peace of mind.
