Why You Need A WordPress Care Plan
There is no doubt that WordPress is one of the best platforms on which to build your business website. After all, 26% of all website owners Worldwide cannot be wrong!
WordPress core and plugin files need to be updated frequently. Your site needs to be backed up regularly – and to a safe, offsite location. It should also be monitored to ensure it is not infected with malware, that it performs efficiently, and that it doesn’t suffer downtime.
Our WordPress Care Plan range takes those concerns away from you so that you can focus on running your business.

In our opinion, this is the Best WordPress Care Plan available!
We have not found a comparable service by any other provider which does not cost considerably more!
Jump on board and start giving yourself the peace of mind that your WordPress site is being professionally updated.
¹ Assumes you have current licences for any premium plugins. If not, we will ignore those plugins. Theme updates are excluded from this plan.
² A comprehensive site test is not practical after every update. We take a very quick look to make sure your site is still working, as well as a spot check on certain functional areas if they may have been impacted by a plugin update.
³ Most update issues can be fixed within a few minutes. If one of these affects your website we will resolve it without additional cost to you. If a fix is likely to take longer we will estimate the cost for you, suggest appropriate alternatives, or back the update out for you.
4 A migration fee will be charged, typically £90+vat per site, if you need an existing site moved over to our hosting area.
5 This includes our time taken to update your WordPress core and plugins.
All of our support time hours are offered on a use-it-or-lose it basis. No time can be carried over from one month to the next.
