Focus on your message. We handle the technical stuff.

Choosing WordPress as the platform to build your web presence on was smart.  WordPress runs 35% of the world’s web sites – over 450 million sites – for a reason.  WordPress is a solid, fast, and reasonably secure platform that can probably be molded into the site you want without any hand-coding required.  That does not mean WordPress is install-and-forget. 

Now, in addition to getting your message out, working on your brand, and growing the reach of your business you also need to worry about:

  • Regular security updates
  • Performance monitoring and tweaking
  • Maintaining regular backups
  • Finding the right tool to expand your website to do a new task, and then figuring out what all the configuration options actually do.
  • Fixing things when they go wrong. 
  • Searching for hours upon hours educating yourself on the minutia of DNS, caching, web site performance, and the trade-offs and interactions of the hundreds of variables you can tweak.

Or, you can host with us.

We have the technical know-how to solve the problems you’re facing now, and to figure out how to solve tomorrow’s problems.  Even better: we enjoy it.

If requested, the following services are included in every package:

  • Installation of WordPress itself
  • Migration from your old host if needed
  • Installation and configuration of the core tools that will make your web site fast and efficient
  • Routine updates of WordPress core and your installed plugins
  • Configuration of content delivery networks, Cloudflare or Securi for increased security and anonymity (if you give us access your domain’s DNS settings, or you perform the tasks we specify)
  • Installation of plugins you request – do you need Elementor Pro installed?  YoastSEO?  Rankmath?  Do you know what you want to do but need a recommendation on a plugin to do it?  We can research that and report back or just install it for you
  • Switching PHP versions if there is a conflict with a plugin you’re trying to run
  • Diagnosing and resolving performance issues if they arise
  • Helping with tasks you’ve forgotten how to do – re-enable comments, re-arrange your menu, change the address your Contact Us form sends to (or from)
  • Configuring e-mail, if you’re hosting e-mail through us
  • Performing backups, and secondary backups, and offline backups, and reminding you periodically to make your own backups (with a link to instructions in case you forget how to do this)

The tasks listed above are all things that we consider Routine Maintenance.  Routine maintenance is performed free of charge – just create a support ticket.

More complex tasks like these incur labor costs:

  • Installing and configuring a private forum
  • Helping you install and configure your e-Commerce site in WooCommerce
  • Integrating Stripe for payments into your site, running trial transactions to make sure things work well, and helping you define the products you’re selling
  • Anything else you want to do with your site that’s not a simple plug-and-play solution

 

We are here to help.

If you don't understand any of the above, don't worry - we can hold your hand
