WordPress core and plugin updates are notorious for not playing nicely with each other and breaking sites. Never worry about updates breaking the look of your website again.

Our Visual Validator will take screenshots of up to 20 pages of your site prior to any update being applied. Updates are then applied. The Visual Validator will take new screenshots and compare them to see if anything looks different. If any visual discrepancies are detected, our pack will be notified to resolve the issue.

Security Hardening

Security is fundamental for every website. Your site needs to be protected against the hack attempts and malicious malware that threaten your website's integrity daily. Security is a no-brainer and we'll keep your site safe and secure with every plan.

  • Daily automatic deep scans to detect malware, viruses and malicious code
  • Malware cleanup if detected
  • Powerful Website Application Firewall (WAF) to keep the bad guys out

Add-Ons

Along with your care plan, you’ll be able to choose from an array of add-ons that offer specific benefits depending on your individual WordPress website or business needs.

Add-onn Options
SEO Strategy Platform
This add-on was created specifically for small businesses who do not have the budget for expert support or the time to learn the ins and outs of SEO. Gain access to an instructive-based, do-it-yourself solution to guide you through all hows and whys to run a successful SEO campaign. From onsite to offsite, content to link building – you’ll be creating the best possible SEO strategy for your business.
SEO Pathway Framework
Overwhelmed or feeling lost with your current SEO services? We keep it simple. Select the pathway(s) that will deliver the best results for your goals. Our pathway process is designed to be a proactive service. You'll choose 1, 2 or 3 pathways to work on. No matter which option(s) you choose, we've implemented a framework in which we are ALWAYS building upon the previous months work, ensuring that we are delivering results, and delivering them well, even if you are unsure of where to go next.
Managed Hosting with Website Security Insurance

Fully managed and optimized WordPress hosting on our dedicated Virtual Private Servers (VPS) with a huge range of benefits and features, including:

  • Website Security Insurance
    • Security and vulnerability monitoring offloaded to another server (keeping your website and our servers running fast)
    • Added protection to block attacks before they load (and slow down) your website
    • File integrity checks performed when files are changed
    • Automated malware identification and removal (if needed)
    • Root cause analysis report in the event of malware detection
    • Blacklist removal (if needed)
    • Outbound email monitoring for malicious activity
    • Additional in depth monthly security report (if desired)
  • Real-time SPAM protection that auto detects and blocks SPAMbots from leaving comments, submitting forms, or registering user accounts
  • No bandwidth or visitor limits
  • Free, no hassle, SSL
  • Staging environment for testing plugins, themes, or anything you want
  • Backups as often as hourly
  • DNS and Domain Management
  • And so much more!
NOTE: WooCommerce (and other eCommerce systems) and Membership based websites generally need to upgrade to our Dedicated Hosting. These types of sites typically need specific configurations and require their own resources to run smoothly. You'll gain all of the same benefits while enjoying your own dedicated server resources.
Enhanced Staging with Merging

Add the ability to merge data from your staging site back to your production site.

Merging allows you to record changes made on your staging site and easily push those changes (and only those changes) to production when you're ready. By merging, vs syncing, any changes made on production while changes were being tested on staging are preserved and kept safe.

Real-Time Backups
Our care plans come standard with nightly full backups. However, some websites, particularly e-commerce or membership based sites, may have orders happening every few hours or even every few minutes. What would happen if a restore of your database needed to be done and you lost those orders? With real-time backups, the most data you'll ever lose is about 5 minutes worth of work, orders, memberships, or comments.
Multisite Setup and Support
With Multisite WordPress, you can run multiple sites with one WordPress installation. From WordPress.org:
A multisite network is a collection of sites that all share the same WordPress installation core files. They can also share plugins and themes. The individual sites in the network are virtual sites in the sense that they do not have their own directories on your server, although they do have separate directories for media uploads within the shared installation, and they do have separate tables in the database.
Each Multisite Plan is hosted on it's own dedicated server and includes:
  • Enhanced security for the entire multisite network, including proactive protection that blocks attacks before they happen, security and vulnerability monitoring at the server level, automated malware identification and removal, and more
  • Real-time SPAM protection that auto detects and blocks SPAMbots from leaving comments, submitting forms, or registering user accounts on each sub-site
  • Basic care plan for the master site
    • Monthly updates of WordPress Core, Plugins and Themes
    • Basic Database Optimization and Cleanup
    • Daily file and database offsite encrypted backups with 90 day retention
    • Monthly Report with updates history and backup statistics
  • Limited only by the server resources with the ability to upgrade as/when needed
  • SSH Access (upon request)
  • Individual sub-sites can add Unlimited Support on a per site basis at 15% off
Enhanced WooCommerce Cart

We’ll implement and setup CartFlows to optimize your WooCommerce store. What’s that mean?

  • Turn your website into a selling machine with one-click sale funnels and frictionless checkout.
  • Gain cart abandonment implementation and setup with the option of auto generation and limited time coupons.
  • Easily add order bumps
  • Ready-to-import templates including landing pages, checkout pages, thank you pages, and up-sell/down-sell pages.

* Requires Unlimited Support Care Plan

Let’s find the right package for you.
