Dapper Digital is happy to help you host and maintain your site after deployment. While you will administer the content of the website, routine maintenance of code as well as further training and support is an important piece of the success of your online presence. A WordPress site left not updated can be a huge security flaw – we recommend hiring a professional to maintain it.
Here’s what is included:
- WordPress core code and security updates and upgrades. We follow the release cycle and update your website when we feel the code is stable.
- Plugin upgrades and replacements if outdated or no longer working. Often plugins are abandoned by their developers and stop working after a few WP core updates. We will find a replacement with similar functionality at no cost.
- Vetting any new plugins for security and scalability.
- Theme updates and code maintenance to keep your site working. Themes need to be updated to work with newer versions of WordPress and PHP. We’ll handle this for you!
- Security monitoring and protection. If anything is fishy we get notified right away.
- Uptime Monitoring. We get a text message if your website is not responding.
- Support for your website. You can call us at any time if your website goes down.
- WordPress tech support. We are more than happy to explain how to add pages, edit menus etc.
- Full site backups. Daily backups so you don’t have to worry.
- Unlimited Hosting. We can host your website for you on our servers, and offer unlimited bandwidth.
- Staging Server. We can set up a place for you to preview our code and design changes to your site while not disturbing the main live version.
We Are Not Responsible For:
- New features or functionality to your website. (although new functionality we create will be supported).
- Any code or functionality not created by us.
- Any plugins you install yourself.
- Content changes, images, menus, or pages on your website. We are happy to show you how though.
- Your company’s email. We can help you point your DNS to your mail servers, or recommend a mail service if you don’t already have one.
Optional Add-On Retainers:
- Marketing and Strategy Consultation.
- Graphic Design for new pages or functionality.
- Functionality changes.
- Content updates, blogging, copy writing, editing.
There are several web hosts to choose from, and a few exclusively WordPress hosts, but none of them offer website maintenance. They’ll make sure your website stays up, but they won’t upgrade it for you, do security patches, and answer questions on how to use your site.
