Total care for your website

Do you worry about the security of your website?  Is it too slow, buggy or difficult for your potential customers to use?

Does the thought of testing and applying WordPress updates regularly fill you with dread?  Do you wish you had a trusted expert partner to rely on instead?

We've got you covered

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

Fast AWS-based WordPress hosting and website maintenance is included.  We have added 60 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?

If your website is a source of revenue then problems become much more serious.  Financial, as well as reputational damage, is certain if your site is offline, displaying ads for fake sunglasses or much much worse.  An e-commerce or membership site taking money needs to be totally trusted to avoid customers moving away, never to return.

Weak passwords, missing security fixes, outdated software and user errors are the common culprits that can instantly kill your website revenue stream so can you honestly say you are paying enough attention to them?  If you aren’t, is anyone?

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.

92% of our clients stay with us after their first year because of our relentless focus on service

A:  Sure. Drop us a message and we'll send you an invoice

 

Q:  Who actually owns the website?
A:  During the first year, we retain ownership of the site (not your content) until the balance is paid off.  At this point, website ownership transfers to you.

 

Q:  What happens after the first year?
A:  If you'd like us to continue managing, hosting and supporting your website then you'll move to a Care Plan.  If , instead, you are leaving us at that stage (we've not had one yet) we'll package and supply your site for you to transfer to your new provider.

A:  Absolutely.  You have full control over how you'll site will look to make it perfectly fit your personality & brand. 

 

Q:  I don't have a brand (or I don't want to use it).  Is this a problem?
A:  It depends.  We can build using what you have already but you might want our designers to create something fresh and new, from a simple logo redraw up to a full rebrand.

Q:  Do I need to do any updates?
A:  No - and we recommend you don't as we'll review and test on a copy of your website where needed.
