Hosting, maintenance and security management plan designed for experienced WordPress website owners who do not require support time.

Details

We’ll take care of the essential website security, performance and other updates so you can focus instead on growing your business.

WordPress hosting and website maintenance is included.  We have added 30 minutes of development support time each month to make further adjustments as your business changes and any unused time can be used at any time within six months to support bigger changes.

We review plugins to see if they have security problems and whether they are still safe to use or have been abandoned by the developer.  We’ve developed our own WordPress monitoring solutions and automated website cloning processes to allow us to work on your site safely.

We do all of this to keep your business website representing your brand perfectly.

Why should you care?

Your website is most likely the first place potential customers learn about your business.  If that site is or doesn’t work properly the best outcome is they will come back later.

Imagine if it’s offline, or displaying ads for fake sunglasses or much much worse.  That potential customer is probably never coming back.  But what about your existing customers?  After all, if your shop window is broken maybe other areas of the business in trouble too.

Weak passwords, missing security fixes, outdated software and user errors are the common culprits and can you honestly say you are paying ANY attention to them?  And, if not you, then who?

Why trust us?

Our Founders have nearly 50 combined years running IT Operations for investment banks and hosting companies so a focus on security and availability is at our core.  We only use software with the best reputation and make recommendations for replacements when needed.

Our plans were created in response to what we saw as an industry problem where Designers and Developers would build a site and then typically forget about it (until something went wrong when they would charge to fix it).

We believe the better way is to prevent the problems in the first place (and the expensive fixes) with a fixed cost care plan and support time that actually improves your site over time.

 

WordPress updates made when needed
When new software updates are released, we’ll review them and apply them to your site at the best time and recommend replacements for risky plugins. Critical recommended security updates applied as soon as possible
Expert support available
If you get stuck and need support, simply purchase some TimeBank support time and our technical team will help you with whatever is needed.
Is your website healthy? Check
We monitor your site every 30s from multiple locations to ensure it’s available to your visitors, alerting us instantly to any problems. Digging in further, our in-house WordPress monitors look for out of date software and other potential issues.
Lower price, not lower quality
Your plan includes the same great WordPress optimised hosting as our larger plans. No compromises
