3 Reasons to Obtain a Website Care Plan

February 16, 2017

Websites are no longer build it and forget it. There are hackers searching day and night just to break into the simplest website for thrills. Not every hack is related to stealing information it is about the take over, the overall inconvenience that is being caused by the lack of access to your website or even worse the amount of money you are losing in sales.

Keep in mind your web host is NOT responsible for the security of your website. Your web designer/developer is NOT responsible for your website. Once your website is complete (unless your designer states otherwise) you are ON YOUR OWN! Imagine awaking to:

The RED SCREEN OF DEATH…yes RED screen means Google has tagged your website as unsafe. Imagine the visitors that have seen your site before YOU discovered the message. The thought is frightening. Now more than ever, all businesses need some form of protection OR at least some type of early warning system and a website care plan can do just that. Here are just THREE important reasons to buy yourself a website care plan.

  1. Uptime Monitoring: WPD Media guarantees 99.99% uptime on our servers (WPD Hosting). What this means is that you website will be live and accessible to your customers. An outage overnight for a couple of moments is to be expected as servers need to refresh. Attempting to guarantee 100% uptime isn’t feasbile and would leave any web host liable and no one wants to be liable for any issues. Our website care plans are handled via Maintained By Us and our software monitors for downtime and if any downtime is found Maintained By Us is immediately notified and we begin to investigate the problem and get the website back online.
  2. Security Updates: All WordPress websites (the WordPress core, WordPress themes and plugins) update often for security purposes. After notification of update we check your website for compatibility before we upgrade your website. Sometimes updates will break a website and it is NOT our goal to leave you broken. It is our goal to actively monitor your website so that you website is always live and up to date to avoid any security issues.
  3. Virus Removal: Sometimes viruses happen and in the event that your website does get hacked (even with all of the precautions things happen), Maintained By Us will take time to completely remove the virus, clean up the website and restore the data. The goal is to get out in front of the issue and be PROACTIVE. It is not possible to be 100% protected against ANY viruses, but with a website care plan and our ability to stay on top of the issue, we will make it tremendously difficult for your site to be hacked and it will be cleaned.

A website care plan is very important for all businesses and website types, and when you are ready to get started Maintained By Us is here to be of service. Check out Maintained By Us to get your 10% discount using coupon code FB10 on your first month of service.
