Maintenance: WordPress Essentials
Peace of mind should be affordable. Modern hackers use automatic tools which scan thousands of servers in minutes, identifying and attacking vulnerable systems. Your website is being poked every day for exploitable vulnerabilities. Compromised systems become slaves in massive DDoS botnets and spam relays. If unprepared, recovering from an attack can cost you hundreds of dollars. This maintenance package offers everything you need to protect your website. This service is included free with all of my hosting packages.
I will update your plugins and WordPress software every day, which will protect you against the majority of attacks. The core WordPress software updates itself automatically, but plugins do not. That makes this an essential routine for every WordPress website.
Backups & Recovery
Standard: Plugin Based
I will install and configure a plugin based backup solution to create full backups of your website files and database. These can be weekly, daily, or on a schedule you specify. Backups can be delivered automatically to your cloud storage service.
Optional: Off-Site Backups
You can choose to have a second set of incremental backups stored on an off-site Pride Tech Design server. This includes 7 daily, 5 weekly, and 12 monthly backups, which are retained for 1 year.
Standard: Disaster Recovery
Restoration of your website files and database using available backups is free.
Every day your website will be scanned for malware. In the unlikely event that your website becomes compromised, I will restore a clean version of your site from backups. Then we can proceed to diagnose and fix any unchecked vulnerabilities to prevent repeated attacks.
This optional feature starts with a security audit of your website and webserver. Next I will install and configure efficient security tools, as well as making configuration enhancements to your webserver which will protect you from hackers and increase the safety of your users.
With this optional feature your website will be monitored 24 hours a day for outages, errors, and other signs of trouble. In the event of an alert, I will quickly diagnose and attempt to repair the trouble. This service includes monitoring the status of your SSL certificate, so if renewal fails we will be alerted 30 days in advance of expiration.
Orders placed during business hours are processed immediately. Orders placed outside business hours are fulfilled within 24 hours. There is no money due at sign-up, you can try this service free for 14 days. When you place your order, you will be contacted by E-mail to complete the setup.
