Website Maintenance with On-Call WordPress Support
Regular website maintenance is the one single thing that prevents problems.
WordPress is PHP based, and an open source platform. Therefore, the code for WordPress, plugins and themes is under constant review. Accordingly- managing updates goes a long way in keeping a website secure.
Our WordPress support service helps you get the job done. Think of it as having an expert watch over your shoulder to catch errors before they happen.
How Often Should You Perform WordPress Maintenance?
We recommend monthly maintenance of websites running WordPress. If your theme is custom coded then login and check for updates every two weeks. Do them as needed. However, if your website runs an online shop using WooCommerce or Ecwid, weekly maintenance is in order.
