Hosting, Maintenance & Support

Websites are no longer just static pages on the internet. Modern websites are dynamic, software-driven applications with a lot of moving parts. They have to be in order to adapt to evolving internet technologies and to keep up with consumer demands and expectations. Then there are the mighty search engines. If a website is not stable, secure, and functional on any device, search engines are reluctant to recommend them to their users.

Keeping software updated and fixing usability and security issues as they arise is an essential part of maintaining any website. But there’s much more, which is why we provide service plans to make sure all your bases are covered. 

What’s Included?

To prevent unexpected expenses for repairs and troubleshooting, and to provide you with the services and support you need to keep your website updated and running smoothly, our SiteCare Plans include:

  • Managed Hosting
Your site is securely hosted on Google Cloud servers optimized for speed and performance on the WordPress platform. Should any server-related issues arise, we work with the web hosting engineers to bring your site back online and restore it to a healthy state.
  • Backups & Recovery
We have a redundant system of backups that make copies of your website’s files and database on a daily and monthly basis, and stores them securely off-site for up to 90 days. In the event of a catastrophic failure, we will restore your site from one of these restore points at no additional charge.
  • FREE SSL Certificate

We install SSL certificates on all of the sites we host and maintain. Not only does SSL encryption help to protect the transfer of sensitive information, it enhances consumer trust and meets the security standards that Google looks for when ranking websites. Learn more about the advantages SSL.
