Expert WordPress website maintenance and support packages in the UK

Do you support all WordPress websites?

Mostly, yes, but there are exceptions. Before committing to support your website, we conduct a thorough audit. This step is vital to assess if we can provide the highest standard of care and maintenance for your website.

For sites that are significantly outdated, poorly maintained, or built with foundational issues, a comprehensive rebuild might be required to ensure effective servicing. Should this be necessary for your site, we’ll offer straightforward, honest advice, and this initial assessment comes at no cost to you.

On occasion, we come across websites, including large multi-sites, extensive e-commerce platforms, and blogs with substantial content, that may be too intricate or demanding for us to support effectively and affordably. Our goal is to offer the best solutions within reasonable boundaries.

Websites built on platforms like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, and Shopify are tailored for specific hosting environments, so we cannot host or offer migration and support for these platforms.

After our audit, we’ll have a detailed understanding of your website’s unique requirements. This enables us to customise our support to best suit your needs. So, why wait? Request an audit today – we’re keen to discover how we can work together and enhance your WordPress website.

Getting Started with Your WordPress or WooCommerce Care and Maintenance Plan

After signing up for your chosen care package, we’ll quickly and easily integrate you into our maintenance system

  • First, we’ll set up an account for you on our Client Portal. Here, you can log in at any time to open a ticket, review, and reopen your closed tickets if a problem reoccurs.

    After logging in, we’ll ask you to complete our Client Worksheet. This secure web form collects login details for your WordPress dashboard, your web hosting account, and your domain registrar information. This step is essential for providing us with the necessary access to manage your website effectively.

    Our portal is simple and user-friendly, ensuring a smooth and efficient experience.

  • Next, we need you to create an administrator account in your WordPress installation using the username and email address we provide. This enables us to access and manage your website with the appropriate permissions.

    Don’t worry if you’re unsure how to do this – we’re here to help. We will guide you through the process or, if preferred, we can handle the creation of this account on your behalf.

    This step is crucial for allowing us to carry out essential maintenance and updates seamlessly.

  • Once we have access to your site, we will install maintenance, reporting, and backup software plugins. This allows us to connect your website to our central maintenance dashboard.

    Through this, we can monitor your site remotely for necessary updates to plugins, themes, and the WordPress core, without needing to log in to the backend each time.

    The plugin also tracks other maintenance tasks, like completed backups, security scans, and changes made by your users. This is crucial for troubleshooting any issues in the future.

  • If we are hosting your account, we’ll need access to your domain registrar to update the DNS settings as soon as the site transfer is complete. Alternatively, we can liaise with your current developer to manage this.

    This step is vital for ensuring that your website’s hosting environment is optimised for performance, security, and reliability.

    We’ll work closely with you or your team to guarantee a smooth transition with no downtime.

  • Once everything is set up and functioning correctly on our systems, we’ll confirm this with you. Then, you can relax, knowing your site is in safe hands.

    Remember, if you encounter any problems, you can easily get in touch. Our dedicated support is available to assist with any queries or issues that may arise, ensuring timely and effective solutions.

    We are committed to providing you with continuous support and peace of mind regarding your website’s health and performance.

WordPress Care & Maintenance Plans FAQs: Essential Insights for Your Website’s Success

When can I get support?

We endeavour to respond to your support ticket promptly and schedule your task accordingly. For updates, changes, and repairs, we prioritise each during our core office hours, which are 06:00 – 18:00 CET Monday to Thursday, and 06:00 – 14:00 CET on Fridays.

We understand the unpredictable nature of business; therefore, outside these hours, we remain committed to providing support as swiftly and effectively as possible, on a best endeavour basis.

Although we work CET time, we try to align with UK Bank Holidays where possible

Does the contract include licences for all plugins and themes?

No, commercial plugins, components, and extensions that require a software licence for updates will incur charges based on the developer’s cost.

Do maintenance hours roll over to the next month?
No. We protect you, our other clients, and our ourselves by forecasting and planning based on active plan hours for the month. This ensures we have resources available when needed.
Will you re-design my website under this contract?

No, this service is primarily for monthly maintenance, including website software and plugin upkeep. Development work such as custom post types or developing new pages is not included, but can be quoted at a discounted rate for clients with a hosting package.

What happens if my website is hacked, breaks, goes down, etc?

We provide care plans to take preventative care and work hard to prevent issues. However, if something does go wrong, we will fix it as quickly as possible. While we can’t guarantee that your website won’t get hacked, we ensure daily backups are in place for restoration and provide malware removal for any residual malicious code on your server.

Can I use my own web host?

Absolutely! Although our care plans include fast hosting, we can work with your current hosting. Some security hardening and hosting tweaks may not be implementable, but we will discuss this with you on a case-by-case basis.

Is there a contract length?

As we offer a pay-as-you-go, month-to-month service, there is no set contract length. However, we do require a commitment to an initial three-month period for the setup of your website, and this will be billed at the start of our service.

This is because auditing your site, transferring it to our servers (if requested), and configuring it on our maintenance system requires significant time and resources. We need to incur these costs to provide you with the best possible service.

We hope that you will find the benefits of our service outweigh the initial set-up costs and continue with us beyond the three-month period. If not, you are free to leave without any further obligations.

How can I cancel my services?

To cancel, just email us anytime. There’s an initial 3-month contract that you agree to. After that, it turns into a rolling monthly contract that you can cancel at any time during the month and it won’t continue to the next.

If we’re hosting your site, you might want to switch to a monthly ‘hosting only’ plan or if moving away, arrange to have your new web host move your site for you.

We like to keep our customers for a long time, but we understand things can change. We’d be sad to see you go, but we get it.

What are your support ticket response times?

We aim to respond to your ticket as quickly as possible, often immediately, but an instant response isn’t always feasible, but you’ll receive an automated reply to aknowledge your request.

We endeavour to resolve issues on the same day, giving priority to breakdowns and errors that impact website functionality. Fixes that require website downtime are typically undertaken outside of core office hours, unless they are urgent.

I have more than one website – do you offer a discount?

Yes, we offer a 20% discount for each additional website up to 10 websites. Beyond that, each additional website will receive a 40% discount. If you are an agency, our white label service for maintaining client websites may be more cost-effective for you.

What do you class as updates to the content?

We will edit or update pages, posts, custom post types, and plugin content, adding text and images supplied pre-formatted by you. We strive to keep your site updated as required but will need to quote separately for design work, creating custom post types, or custom development.

Which countries do you offer WordPress tech support and maintenance for?

We primarily focus on the UK market but can support sites in any English-speaking country. We currently manage websites for clients in Hungary and Germany, as they communicate in English and provide content verbatim, and their WordPress dashboards are in English. So, we can support you too if you fit this category.

Can I cancel the maintenance service anytime?

While we’d hate to see you leave, we understand that circumstances change. After the initial 3-month commitment, there are no lock-in contracts. Just email us, and we’ll cancell the contract from the month end.

What kind of tasks are excluded from your service?

Our service is primarily dedicated to routine maintenance and site updates, in line with the time allocation specified in your plan, however we do try to be as flexible as possible!

Tasks beyond this scope, such as web design, specific plugin support, custom post type development, theme development, blog creation, content creation, and creating new layouts, are not included in the standard maintenance package. However, we are equipped and ready to assist with these tasks. All such additional work will be assessed, quoted, and agreed upon separately.

We aim to cater to most of your website needs with our WordPress care plans while offering comprehensive support and development solutions as needed.

Do you maintain WooCommerce websites?

Of course! We are well-versed in maintaining e-commerce websites, especially those built on WooCommerce. Check our Premium Care Plan for specific WooCommerce maintenance details.

Are there any limitations to what your service can fix?

We’ve gained experience in tackling many WordPress issues over the years, but there may be rare instances where a problem is beyond our scope. In such cases, we’ll seek additional expertise to find a solution, although this may lengthen the fix time.

Where are you located?

Although a UK business, we have offices in both the UK and Central Europe, where we try to work from most of the time, especially as the weather is usually better in the summer!

Despite the significant and ongoing difficulties Brexit imposes, the capacity to operate internationally still stands out as a crucial advantage in the realm of web services.

Do you handle plugin and theme updates?

Yes, leave the updates to us. We manage plugin, theme, and core WordPress updates, ensuring safety and compatibility with your website.

How can I choose the best WordPress maintenance service for my needs?

To ensure the performance of your WordPress website, regular maintenance is always necessary.

Selecting the right service involves considering the ease of use, the range of services offered, and the flexibility of maintenance plans. It’s worth considering whether a one-off fee or a regular payment best suits your needs.

For experienced users, who have the time, performing maintenance tasks yourself is certainly an option. Alternatively, utilise our maintenance services if you’re a beginner or if you wish to lessen your workload to concentrate on other aspects of your business.

What benefits do I get from a WordPress Website Maintenance Service?

Our service ensures your website’s optimal performance with regular backups, expert WordPress support, continuous security updates, and timely WordPress upgrades.

  • Fast, Green Hosting
  • Core, Theme & Plugin Updates
  • Free SSL Certificate & Renewals
  • Daily Website Backups
  • Uptime Monitoring
  • Malware Scanning
  • Telephone & Ticket Support

We focus on enhancing user experience and ensuring smooth and appealing content delivery.

Do you provide customised maintenance plans?

Yes, we can tailor our maintenance plans to meet your specific business needs.

Contact us to discuss your requirements, and we’ll design a package that ensures your site is well-maintained and secure, focusing on what’s most important for your business.

Can I get support for my business emails along with website maintenance?

For email hosting, we recommend reliable services such as GSuite or Office 365, which are better suited to meet business email requirements.

To ensure email deliverability, we can configure clients on our premium plan with an SMTP API via Brevo (previously known as Sendinblue), guaranteeing that all emails originating from your site are delivered to the intended recipients.

How much do you charge for extra development work?

Custom development work outside our standard maintenance service is currently charged at £75 per hour, covering a wide range of development needs and we always provide a quote and obtain written confirmation before undertaking this work.

For larger, more complex jobs, we will quote a fixed price rather than an hourly rate – again with written agreement.

Why should I choose your service for my business website?

Because we take care of all your website needs – so you don’t have to!

We specialise in WordPress: maintenance, hosting, design & development, so can provide expert solutions for almost any issue.

We have comprehensive solutions like daily backups, 24/7 security monitoring, and performance optimisation, all designed to enhance your website’s reliability and efficiency, allowing you to concentrate on your core business.

Can I speak to someone before signing up?

Yes, of course!

We encourage a conversation with all new customers to ensure we understand your needs and offer a personalised service.

Just request a callback, and we’ll be in touch.

Can you provide support for complex WooCommerce setups

Absolutely. We can handle complex WooCommerce setups, including subscription models, membership sites, and advanced product configurations, as part of our top-tier support package. Alternatively, we offer tailored, bespoke support for these functionalities, given the time required to manage them effectively, so can we ensure that your specific business setup operates correctly.
