Hosting & Maintenance

lock

Your website needs reliable hosting and regular maintenance.

The first step to keeping your site fast and secure is good hosting. The next step is regular updates and maintenance. My maintenance plans include both, so you can spend your time running your business and not worrying about your website.

See what I’ll be doing for you each month in the plans below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any set up or cancellation fees?

Nope! You can set up a plan, upgrade, or cancel anytime without any fees.

What happens if I pass on your plan?

If you decide to decline the maintenance plan, there’s a lot that can go wrong. Here are the top reasons I recommend you make sure your website is maintained:

  • The site will not be optimized which can lead to poor performance, slow loading times and a gradual loss of Google SEO rankings.
  • The site’s tools, plugins, theme and WordPress itself will quickly go out of date which is a leading cause of website hacks.
  • If you do get hacked you could have to pay a fee to get your site cleaned and you might not have a backup.
  • If for some reason your site goes down or is having server-related problem, you’ll have to contact your hosting company and deal with long wait times. They may help diagnose, but solving the problem will be your responsibility.
  • If you do want me to do something for you, I will need to do that work at my normal hourly rate instead of the discounted rate packaged in the montly plan.
Does the hourly work roll over in the standard & premium plans?

No, the retainer of hourly updates is just covered for that month.

What if my site gets hacked while on the plan?

If your site should get compromised while you’re on the plan, I’ll take care of cleaning the site and getting everything squared away with Google at no extra cost to you. However, to date, I have had zero sites get hacked while on my plan. 

What if I have updates that require more than the hour(s) included in my plan?

I’ll always try to get your updates done quickly to save you some extra cost but if you have a decent amount of updates that will require more hours, I’ll give you an estimate of time and do that at my hourly rate. If you’re on the Premium plan you’ll have a 50% discount off the hourly amount.

What if I pass on the plan and my site gets hacked?

I can take care of getting the site cleaned for an initial fee of $250, then I can get your site on my monthly plan to make sure it remains clean and protected from hacks.

How fast do you get to the hourly work I request?

I try to get to the hourly work within 1-2 business days. As a monthly client, you always get priority over clients who aren’t on the plan.
