This means that you get 25% off the regular hourly rate of $100/hr for $80/hr on all services. This offer is only available to clients on our “Hosting & Maintenance” packages.

Website Hosting

Our websites are hosted on Google Cloud providing you with the fastest services and up-to-date technologies in the industry.

SSL Certificate

An SSL certificate, also known as a Secure Sockets Layer, protects your company, website and your site visitors. An SSL certificate functions by allowing your website to secure, receive and transfer sensitive data provided by your users or your business.

CMS Updates

It’s important your Content Management System remain up to date at all times. We do proper backups and ensure that your entire system is running smoothly and securely.

Backups

We verify and monitor that our servers create the daily backup of the website database and files. We also make sure your backup files go where they are supposed to go and are ready in case of an emergency.

Theme & Plugin Updates

We verify that the theme and plugins used are up-to-date and pose no security threats or harm to your website. The theme used on your website is top-level and receives updates from an API registered to our license. As long as you are part of our hosting and maintenance renewal program you will receive theme updates. If you choose to manage your website independently you will have to purchase a license for your website. 

Malware Scan

We scan your website for possible infected files or malware. We also visually inspect your website and check for design or formatting issues in different web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. Furthermore, we check your website from a mobile device and a tablet to make sure it looks good and responds well.

Security Updates

Our cloud-based servers are always up-to-date and we make sure that all security applications are as well.

Password Changes

We change the password of the administrative area and request a password change to the other users if there are any.

Minimize Administrators

We remove unnecessary users and administrators. Hacked administrator accounts can cause the most damage to your site, so we minimize their number.

Remove Unused Plugins & Themes

We disable and/or remove all unnecessary plugins and themes. Unnecessary plugins can slow your website down and increase and the risk of vulnerabilities.

Delete Unnecessary Files

Website clutter can cause vulnerabilities. We search for unnecessary files in your wp-content folder and browse through your media library to remove any unnecessary images, videos and audio files.

Identify Broken Links

You don’t want your visitors to receive a “Page not found” error when clicking on a link.

Verify Contact Form

We verify your form automatically by sending a message using the contact form on your website and making sure you receive it.

Speed Audit

We use third-party tools to see how fast your site loads. If it takes more than five seconds, we inform you to consider expanding caching and other measures to speed up your site. Slow sites lose visitors and search rankings.

Editing hours expire after 60 days of renewal. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A MONTHLY PAYMENT?

WHAT IF I DONT REQUIRE YOUR SERVICES ANYMORE?

But in the event that you want to go on your own – We will provide you with the most recent copy of the backed-up website where you can then upload it to your own servers and maintain the site in-house. We will no longer be responsible for any parts of your website at this point.
