What are the benefits of a WordPress website support package?Your website is not something you can build and then forget about. As technology evolves, website software is constantly being updated to make it more secure, faster and more visible to search engines. In the same way as things like Microsoft Office and your mobile phone need updating, so too does a WordPress website. But things like this can take up a lot of time, so a website support package can be very helpful. More importantly, your website is an absolutely crucial part of your business. So it requires ongoing care to make sure it continues to perform its functions efficiently and correctly. But this can take up a lot of your precious time. A monthly website support package takes away the pain of managing your website, leaving you free to do what you do best.
What happens if you don’t update WordPress on your website?WordPress itself is constantly being updated. Each new release includes bug fixes, new features, improved performance, and enhancements to stay up to date with new industry standards and best practice. When you do not update your WordPress site, you are risking the security of your website’s security and missing out on great new features and improvements.
What happens if you don’t update WordPress plugins on your website?It’s really important to keep WordPress plugins up to date. If you don’t, there’s a good chance that your website will stop working properly. Even worse, plugin updates often include security updates, so if you are running old versions of plugins then your site is liable to be hacked.
How important is it to backup your website?It’s crucial to take regular backups of your website. If something goes wrong and you don’t have a backup, you could lose everything and have to start from scratch. If you update a plugin or WordPress itself and the site crashes, having a backup will enable you to restore the previous version of the site. And if your site gets hacked, you will definitely need a backup in order to recover it. And don’t forget to test your backups regularly to make sure that they actually work!
What do our support package customers think?Here’s a typical comment from one of our silver website support package customers: “I approached Penny and Mike for help when I found I was spending far too much time trying to sort out issues with my website and SSL. They understood my issues and offered up several solutions. I decided to hand over the website hosting to them and am over the moon with the quality of the work and the service I have received. If you want peace of mind that your site is in the best hands, don’t hesitate to talk to them.” This quote is from a very astute business owner who is more than capable of sorting out these issues herself. But she found that her website was taking up too much of her time; time that could be much better spent on chargeable client work in her areas of expertise. Once she heard about our silver website support package, she was delighted to find that all those niggly issues were dealt with on her behalf; often before she was even aware of them!
