If yes, you’re in good company as WordPress is the most popular website platform globally.
Its strength comes from its flexibility to add functionality to the existing framework. This allows developers to offer additional creativity and functionality to suit your organisation.
Outsourcing the management of your WordPress website gives you reassurance regarding performance and security while saving time internally. Our service offers the three core aspects of good WordPress management: regular updates, regular backups and extended monitoring. Scroll through all three below:
The more functionality your website has, the more there is to maintain and update. By us undertaking this monitoring and updating work keeps your website safe from being targeted by those with malicious intent. The frequency of updates made available depends on individual developers of the theme and any plugins. Our WordPress experts monitor your website daily for any updates and these are implemented according to an agreed schedule. Updates are always tested on a separate development environment before being carried out on the live website.
Ideally, both your WordPress files and your database should be backed up at least twice each week. A daily backup of your files and database is included as part of our core plan. These are stored securely within the Cloud and are retained over a rolling 90-day period. That way you have peace of mind there are plenty of backups at hand, but we don’t keep everything forever. A backup can be restored within a short space of time and can also be provided to you upon request. Our backups aren’t just restricted to your live website – we make sure to cover your development environment too.
Everyone wants their website to run smoothly. This requires careful monitoring and responsive action. Uptime and security are two areas that require extensive monitoring. Our core managed WordPress service includes both these aspects plus proactive security recommendations. Performance monitoring, link monitoring, SEO monitoring and monthly reports can also be provided. As part of our extended monitoring we also keep an eye out for anything where an update hasn’t been issued for an extensive period. Normally this suggests the plugin or theme has been abandoned, highlighting potential problems ahead.
