Website Maintenance, Backup and Security Services

Protecting your website, backing up your data and keeping the code, plugins, themes and content management system software up to date is critical to ensuring your website and the information in it are safe, secure and easily retrievable.  We offer monthly, twice-monthly and weekly services to keep your website current and secure.  Most of our services are centered around WordPress websites, but we can easily adapt our regular services to non-WordPress websites as well.  If you are interested or would like additional information, please contact us.

Monthly Maintenance and Security Plan

$35/month
  • The monthly plan provides daily backups, monitoring and basic maintenance and services and is best for small personal websites that are not updated frequently or have fairly low traffic.
  • Update WordPress to current version
  • Update all Plugins to current versions
  • Update your active WordPress Theme to current version (note: If your current WordPress theme is a purchased theme, your license must be current)
  • Confirm daily and weekly backups are taking place, are stored on your server and download a monthly full-site backup for local archiving and security
  • Daily security monitoring
  • Run malware scan and suggest security recommendations (e.g. password changes, changing plugins no longer supported by the developer, etc.)
  • List outdated or broken site content such as past events, broken links or images
  • Not included: Recovery of lost data from backup archives is not included as part of the monthly plan and will require additional billing based on the availability and completeness of the last available backup.
  • Not included: Diagnosing and fixing security or malware issues. These items are billed separately at an hourly rate dependent on the scope and severity of the work done.
  • Review takes place first week of each month

Weekly Maintenance and Security Plan

$115/month
  • The weekly plan is best for larger companies or websites that have multiple users and high levels of traffic. This plan includes all the services of our twice-monthly plan, includes 1 hour of site updates and all backup and security cleaning, data recovery and re-installation of non-corrupted content is included.
  • Includes all services and benefits provided in our Monthly and Twice-monthly plans
  • Software, theme and plugin updates, backup services, and security checks are all performed weekly
  • 60 minutes of site updates per month. Please note: work above 60 minutes is billed at my usual rate and the 60 minutes of site updates expire at the end of each month if not used. I will send you a mid-month reminder if you have not already used them
  • Data and site recovery is included (based on last available backup)
  • Fixing security and malware issues is included (e.g. removing malware and virus scripts, re-installing WordPress or other software, etc.) in this plan
  • Review takes place Monday or Tuesday of each week unless notified in advance

Notes:

  • ALL plans require a 1 year contract.
  • Monthly cost reduced by 10% if you pay for the entire year in advance!
  • Prices are for a single website, if you have multiple websites, please contact us for more information
  • If you do not currently have back-up and security plugins for WordPress I will install them as part of the first review at no additional cost.
  • Site reviews include a follow-up email listing and confirming any and all site updates and content changes along with any recommendations.
  • The above up-dates do not cover fixing incompatibility errors between code libraries, WordPress, plugins or your theme if the software author has not issued a fix. I will roll the offending update back until a fix is issued by the software author, then will update during the next review.
  • As noted, only the Weekly plan includes data recovery and fixing malware or virus-related issues. Fixing these issues without proper backups and monitoring in place can cost multiple hundreds of dollars just to diagnose and repair, not accounting for how long your website may be down while research and repairs are completed.
  • All other work, updates or maintenance are done at my regular rate on an as requested basis.
