Software Upgrades

Almost all websites now are run on Content Management Systems like WordPress and are extended by adding more software called Plugins. Software Updates provide new features, fix bugs and conflicts and patch security breaches. It's super important to keep WordPress and it's associated Plugins up to date for security reasons. We monitor and update website software on a regular basis to reduce the chance of software conflicts. Included with our yearly plan is two hours of software conflict resolution. From time to time, usually due to software enhancements, conflicts can arise that require some coding adjustments to maintain proper functionality.

Security Monitoring

Your website and every website online is subject to brute force attacks, attempted hacking and malicious activity. You may wonder why someone would want to hack into your website and what they'd hope to gain by doing so. Generally hackers cast a wide net, hope to gain access to a small percentage of their targets and then hope that some of those websites contain information that they can use.

Using special website security software, we monitor back end access and brute force login attempts to your website. We're able to see where users are that login to your website or attempt to login.

*Every effort is made to prevent unauthorized entry to the backend of your website. If your website has been compromised every effort will be made to restore it as soon as possible. We cannot be found liable for any undesired outcome.

Backup Maintenance

Having a backup plan is vital. Although the goal is to never need to reinstall a backup of your website, the worst can happen and having a recent backup will makes thing a lot less painful.

*Backups are created monthly. If the backup is required to restore functionality to the website any changes made within the previous month may be lost.

Uptime Monitoring

We consider it an emergency if your website has gone down for any reason. Knowing within minutes if this happens is crucial to ensuring the best experience for your website's visitors and for you, the website owner to access your content. Using specialize software we monitor your website 24/7 and can react quickly to rectify the problem.
