Website Maintenance

Your WordPress website does so much for you. But like any business system, it needs constant care. A slow-running site with outdated information drives potential clients away. And without the right security measures, hackers can disrupt your site and steal confidential records. That’s a risk you can’t afford to take.

We’ll handle the crucial maintenance and security tasks you don’t have time to do. Our experts will monitor your site around the clock to keep everything running smoothly, 24/7.

DAILY CLOUD BACKUPS

We back up 100% of the data on your site and save it daily on our secure cloud storage, using Amazon S3 infrastructure. If anything happens to your site, we have your core files and database stored remotely for easy access – so we can restore everything with just one click.

24/7 MONITORING

We detect hacking attempts in real time, responding to security issues immediately and tightening controls as needed based on the individual threat level. You can rest assured that there are expert eyes on your site around the clock, protecting confidential data and preventing service disruptions.

WEEKLY UPDATES FOR PLUGINS, THEMES & WP CORE

We scan the core, theme and plugin files that keep your site running, making sure they’re fully up-to-date and aligned with originals in the WordPress repository. This step assures smooth functioning throughout your site.

CONTENT UPDATES

A website is never “done.” You want to add fresh content to your site frequently but between all of the responsibilities of running your business, where can you fit in uploading your photos, videos, and articles? Fresh content is one of the most powerful ways to drive traffic to your website and keep those visitors interested as they learn about what you do. We will work with you to upload media, add, remove, or change site copy as you need it, and refresh any other site content to suit your evolving business.

SECURITY

We use a robust, layered approach to website security that minimizes the risk of data breaches and other negative incidents. Our protocols are designed to safeguard your website’s dashboard and server information and keep sensitive data out of hackers’ reach.

SPEED IMPROVEMENTS

NO ONE likes a slow website. It’s beyond irritating! Our experts will work to minimize page loading times, which can help you improve Google rankings for greater visibility and enhanced website traffic.

Frequently Asked Questions

What information will I need to start my support plan?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

Don’t worry! After you have selected and purchased your support plan, you’ll be given a “white glove” onboarding experience from your personal onboarding concierge. But if you are really an overachiever, then go ahead and make sure you have these bits of info ready.

  1. Your hosting administrator credentials.
  2. WordPress admin credentials.
  3. Any credentials to accounts you have purchased premium plugins for that you would like to keep.

Don’t worry, our team keeps these credentials private and will never share these details.

I have a staging site and a production (live) site. Can you support both?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

Your production (live) site is covered under both the Premium and Premium + Support plans. If you have a separate environment (staging or development) to test updates, you will need to upgrade to our Enterprise Support plan. Our Enterprise Support plan includes connecting your site to a repository, controlled by Strategic, and informing you of the updating procedures.

What does your maintenance plan do if my website is hacked?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

All of our existing Website Care clients get their websites backed up on a regular basis. So if your site gets hacked we can quickly reinstate site to a working version. Additionally, for a hacked website…

#1 We replace WordPress and plugin core files with the latest available.
#2 Custom theme/plugin code is manually checked for infection.
#3 Infected code is deleted and the vulnerable code is replaced with enhanced code.
#4 To track live web traffic and suspicious activity we install Wordfence Security – Firewall & Malware Scan plugin we also blacklist IPs based on suspicious traffic activity. We use tools that scan your site remotely to find malicious payloads and malware locations. If the remote scanner isn’t able to find a payload, we continue with other tests in this section.
#5 We also manually review the iFrames / Links / Scripts tab of the Malware Scan to look for unfamiliar or suspicious elements.

If you’re not currently a client and you’ve been hacked, and you want our help to fix it, then please reach out to us at https://wpnonprofits.com/contact/ and we will follow up within 24 hours.

What are the best ways to contact you for support?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

You can submit a contact form from our website https://wpnonprofits.com/contact/.

Can you help me set up an SSL certificate?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

All websites hosted with us are SSL enabled. If you are under a maintenance plan but not hosted with us, then you will have to purchase Support Hours to get this help.

Can I upgrade my support plan? How?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

In order to start the support plan upgrade process, please fill out our contact form https://wpnonprofits.com/contact/.

Can I purchase multiple support plans?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

Yes! If you have multiple websites you will need a Care Plan for each site. You’ll be able to manage all sites through the same dashboard.

How does your technical support work?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

Our team uses the Teamwork Desk ticketing system for most general support requests. To create a ticket, submit a form on our website https://wpnonprofits.com/contact/. We will respond within 24 hours (but usually sooner) and will give you an update once your request is completed or if we have any questions. Our Premium + Support plan comes with 1 hour per month of website changes and edits. For additional requests, you can purchase Support Hours with a 10% discount for Care Plan clients!

What if an update breaks my site? Does it cost extra to fix?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

If the site “breaks”, we will use the backup to return it to a working version, assess the issue and then let you know what happened. The methods for this vary in some cases, especially if you have an e-commerce site.

The majority of issues are fixed free of cost, however, custom plugins, issues introduced by users, or especially time-consuming issues may be billable. We will notify you before charging anything to your account.

If a site issue is detected, who can report it?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

For security reasons, only approved parties may request support services for a customer. The account holder is the default approved party, but you can also assign authorized users to your account! This can be done simply by emailing us with the name and email address for additional authorized users, as well as specific instructions regarding which sites they are authorized for. From then on, they can both request data and support services. Keep in mind, requests from additionally approved parties may result in a use of your support hours.

Can you restore the site from a backup site?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

Yes, we keep 3 months of rolling back ups!

Can I transfer my support plan to another website?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

Unfortunately, no. See, each WordPress site requires a separate support plan with a unique support license key.

Each support license key is associated with a single site. If you wish to transfer support from one site to another, our staff will ask you to cancel your current support plan and proceed through the initial signup process once again.

What happens if my WordPress plugin is no longer supported?2020-05-14T13:03:10+00:00

We can change the plugin with an alternate plugin or update the code to make it compatible. Please keep in mind, extensive customization of code may result in the use of support hours.

We can make content updates, theme or stylesheet adjustments, install new plugins, configure forms and much more. From code to general WordPress issues, we’ll take care of almost anything that can be done within 30 minutes. Most of our time is spent with CSS, action and filter hooks, PHP, JavaScript and the admin panel. For additional requests, you can purchase support.

What hours do you keep?2020-05-14T13:03:09+00:00

Our team is distributed, meaning we work from around the globe! Our core team is local to the US while some of our employees are international and work remotely. This gives us the ability to provide best possible service.

Where is your team located?2020-05-14T13:03:09+00:00

Our entire team works remotely. All our managerial staff is US-based and located across 3 different time zones.

What are your usual response time and resolution time?2020-05-14T13:03:09+00:00

This varies on the time of day and day of the week, but most are responded to within a couple hours to let you know that we’ve received it and are getting to work. The majority of single-request tickets are solved within 24 hours. Occasionally it may take a bit longer for a long list of edits or more complex changes but we keep you informed on delays involved due to complexity. For priority support (most single-request tickets are solved within 12 hours), feel free to upgrade to our Premium + Support plan.

Again, these times are for a single task, but several tasks sent at once will be broken up and handled as multiple tickets. This may increase the turnaround time.
