MANAGED WORDPRESS

An average of 37,000 websites are hacked every day due to not being properly managed and maintained.

Keeping your website up to date and secure is critical to avoid becoming a victim of hackers & cyber-criminals

WHY DO YOU NEED MANAGED WORDPRESS?

If you refer to the 2017 hacked Web sites report by Sucuri, the one constant you’ll find in this report is the issues pertaining to poorly managed WordPress or unmanaged WordPress websites.

Having your WordPress site hacked is one of the biggest nightmares for any website owner.

From one moment to the next, your site is shut down. Traffic plummets and all the energy, effort, time, and money you put into your site is on the brink of being lost entirely.

This can result not only in the poor performance of your website and loss of revenue but in the theft of any personal or financial data you collect on your website, putting you in breach of the data protection act and GDPR, which could result in a hefty fine.  Malware can also be inserted into your site and spread to all your visitors, eventually causing your website to become blacklisted and blocked by Google.

Finding and fixing the problem is hard work, but not as hard as winning back your audience’s trust or getting your site off blacklists.

Having a fully managed WordPress website will eliminate most of these issues and will significantly decrease your chances of your website being a victim of cybercriminals.

Based on our data, the three most commonly infected CMS platforms were WordPress(83%), Joomla! (13.1%) and Magento (6.5%).

UPDATES

Your WordPress core, plugins and themes will be kept up to date. If any plugin or theme stops being maintained by the developer and is no longer compatible with the latest version of WordPress, you will be informed so we can arrange to replace it with something else.

SECURITY

WordFence security plugin will be installed and configured to lock down and secure your website from common attacks. Any activity will be monitored and alerts dealt with.
This will scan your core files and plugins for any compromise, and will also alert if any of the plugins from the WordPress repository have been compromised and flagged as vulnerable. Your site is also scanned against the WPSCAN database for any known plugin vulnerabilities.

ANALYTICS

See data on how many visitors your site received compared to previous month.

 

 

MONTHLY BACKUPS

If an update fails, or your website crashes, or there is a problem with your hosting provider, it’s imperative to have an up-to-date backup of your website. With this option, I will be running an automated monthly backup. These backups are incremental and run off-site, so are in addition to the hosting provider backups, so can be used to restore the website to a completely different hosting provider if required.

 

The professional plan includes all the basic features plus the following.

SECURITY PLUS

WordFence security plugin will be installed and configured to lock down and secure your website from common attacks. Any activity will be monitored and alerts dealt with.
This will scan your core files and plugins for any compromise, and will also alert if any of the plugins from the WordPress repository have been compromised and flagged as vulnerable. Your site is also scanned against the WPSCAN database for any known plugin vulnerabilities.

For additional security checks, we use Sucuri Scanner to check pages for potential malware, here is a short description on what is done.

  • It visits the main page and extracts the list of links, javascript files and iframes.
  • After that, it re-visit the main page acting as a search engine bot.
  • From the extracted links, it selects 8-10 of them and visits them using different referrers and user agents.
  • It extracts and scans all javascript files and iframes present.
  • It runs all those pages/links against Sucuri’s large malware database and performs multiple anomaly checks, comparing results between different user agents/referrers to see if there is anything hidden.
  • It checks all the included resources against multiple blacklists to see if anything has been flagged by blacklisting agencies like Google, McAfee, Norton, and others.

 

SEO RANKING

You no longer have to separately find, monitor and record your keywords. The SEO ranking tool gives you all of the key metrics in one place for all of your websites. Not only that but it shows you your main competitors, saving you going out there and looking by yourself. It also gives you a timeline of how you rank, better or worse, and tracks your ranking position for you.

UPTIME MONITOR

Uptime Monitor saves you time worrying about what websites are up, it instantaneously notifies you if a website goes down, giving you a chance to fix the problem before it becomes serious. When your WordPress website is down, you’re losing visitors and with that revenue, Uptime Monitor makes sure that this doesn’t happen to you.

WEBSITE PERFORMANCE CHECK

The Performance Check gives you insight into what is happening with your website and how it’s performing. It’s the first step to solving your problems, the Performance Check tells you what they are. It gives you a breakdown of the factors that are affecting your website. You can see each individual factor and its grade, as well as giving you recommendations on how to improve your website performance. You can also follow your website performance over time, marked on a timeline.

This is a great feature especially if your online business depends on website performance.

ADVANCED BACKUPS

If an update fails, or your website crashes, or there is a problem with your hosting provider, it’s imperative to have an up-to-date backup of your website. With this option, I will be running automated scheduled backups and making sure that up-to-date backup is always ready. And since the backups are incremental and run off-site, it will successfully back up even the most problematic websites.

Incremental, reliable, comes with off-site storage, and capable of running on an hourly cycle. Everything you need from a great backup.

  • on-demand backups
  • cloning/migration tool
  • different backup frequencies, from weekly to near real-time (every 1h)
  • upload to your own external destination (Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, OneDrive). This feature is charged separately at £0.13/GB.
  • exclude as well as include files and folders

BACKUP OPTIONS

  1. Daily  (DEFAULT)
  2. Every 12h £2 / month
  3. Every 6h £3 / month
  4. Every hour £5 / month

 

MONTHLY REPORTS

I will send you automated monthly reports details all the activity on your websites. Such as plugins which were updated, backup statuses, uptime monitoring stats, performance stats, SEO ranking results.

All the Professional features are included. Plus.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE & CONTENT MANAGEMENT

Any general maintenance you may need performing on the website, such as minor content changes you require. Adding, removing or changing text, images etc. Adding additional pages, sections, replacing a plugin.

Allocated time is 1 hour per month. 

If you need any major work or larges changes done, please contact me to discuss.

SEO SUPPORT

If you need any SEO work done on the site in general or as a result of the SEO ranking reports, updating or adding keywords or phrases etc.
As with the general maintenance, there are no limits as long as the requests are reasonable.

These are additional Addons that can be added to any plan.

Please contact me if you are interested in implementing either of these solutions.
