Website Care (Maintenance)

Before you decide, let me tell you a bit about my Website Care Plan and Website Security

What is a Website Care Plan

Website Care Plans are suitable for people who may have some technical knowledge but don’t have enough time to do the work. Or for people with no technical knowledge and/or time to update their website.
Here’s where I do ALL the work for you. If you have a blog that needs regular new posts added, products added to your shop, or pages created or updated regularly, then a website care plan is for you.
Send me the content and pictures, and I’ll do the rest. You can choose between either 1/2 hour, 1 hour or 3 hours of my time per month, and I will keep your website, plugins and theme up to date every week as well as making daily backups of your website for those ‘just in case’ times – checking security and monitoring whether your website may be offline for any reason. And if you need support I’ll be there when you need me (at reasonable times of course).

Why would an Insignificant Site Like Mine Be Attacked?

At a high level, an attacker views a vulnerable website as a juicy collection of resources that they can steal or exploit:

  • It’s backed by a server that they can use to run their own programs
  • It’s connected to the internet and likely has a squeaky-clean reputation
  • It might include interesting user data
  • It probably has traffic coming to it
  • It is likely important to you

Most of the time, they use those resources to make money. And they continue to find new creative ways to make a buck.

Using Your Server to Run Their Own Programs for:

  • Cryptocurrency Mining
  • Hosting Phishing Pages
  • Hosting Spam Pages and Injecting Spammy Links
  • Sending Spam Email
  • Attacking Other Sites
  • Hosting Malicious Content

Leveraging Your Site Traffic for:

  • Malicious Redirects
  • Defacements
  • Distributing Malware
  • Stealing Data
  • Ransomware

What If I Get Hacked!!!

For me to recover your hacked website currently costs in excess of £400, so in other words, when you do not update your website you are risking your website security, missing out on new features/improvements and risking additional costs to get your website back.

Don’t worry though, I have your back.

Why is keeping your WordPress installation, plugins and theme up to date so important?

To date, WordPress powers around 40% of websites on the internet and with each new release bugs are fixed, new features added, performance enhanced and existing features kept up to date with industry standards.

Most importantly, security vulnerabilities are corrected with new versions. Hackers are constantly finding new ways to break your site just for fun or to use them for all kinds of naughty stuff like sending out spam, collecting usernames, passwords and credit card details to sell, or other dodgy dealings.

With my Website Care Plans, you can sleep at night, safe in the knowledge that your precious website is protected and safeguarded against any unwanted intruders.

Security is pretty important. In fact, security is damn important. Hackings of your website can cost you valuable downtime, embarrassing visuals, get you in trouble with Google and cost you the chance to make money.

Yet it happens every day. This is why it is necessary for someone running a business on their website to have security measure in place.
