Wordpress Website Protection & Maintenance Package
Our WordPress Website Protection & Maintenance Package covers essential tasks and checks performed on a monthly basis. Like all software, your WordPress site needs regular and ongoing attention.
Hosting – Your website is hosted on our servers in a secure Tier 3 data centre and redundant sites. All of our servers are monitored 24×7 and maintained to the highest technical standard. Our primary data centre is the most certified in Australia and is also certified to Global standards with redundant power, internet links, oxygen suppression systems, redundant heating and cooling.
Digital SSL (https) Security Certificates – To remove web browser warnings and to make your site secure in transit we recommend the installation of digital SSL certificates. Renewal and installation of these certificates is included. We use and recommend certificates from Let’s Encrypt or Digicert.
Backup – Your site is backed up hourly and backups are stored for a minimum of 30 days.
Malware, spyware and ransomware scanning – We scan your website for malware, spyware and ransomware and report issues found and advise you of the issue and make recommendations for rectification/removal.
WordPress Theme and Plugin Assessment/Reporting – Many WordPress websites are developed with more attention to design and with little or no thought to security and functionality. Poor quality design, poor quality themes and poor quality plugins, not to mention the use of too many plugins all increases the risk factors for WordPress. Some developers still “develop” whereas others simply purchase a plugin to do the job for them. Many plugins are chosen for their functionality without any attention being given to the truly important issues such as is the code behind the plugin updated regularly for security, is the plugin safe – i.e. not full of malware, how much has it been used, what is its score rating, does it slow down the speed of your website in turn attracting bad scores from Google?
We review your themes and plugins and report back to you information regarding required updates, if poor quality themes or plugins or issues are found.
Security & Performance – We reduce security risk by checking for vulnerabilities, and by reporting the latest recommended WordPress security practices and techniques. We use a security points grading system to measure how well your site is protected based on the security features activated. Security monitoring sends alerts to our support team if there is attempted unauthorised access or unauthorised system file changes. Issues are then investigated and reported to you.
