Maintaining a blog is no easy task. You need to take care of lot of technical things. Backups, performance, uptime are just a few of your headaches.
However, we can take care of all this for you. We offer Awesome WordPress Maintenance Service for just $29/month per site.
Here are top 5 things we offer and how they can help you:
There’s one common advice that everyone with computer background will give to you:
Regularly backup your data.
You need to have an extra copy of your blog in case something goes wrong. And further, you should have two kinds of backups:
- Onsite backup
- Offsite backup
Onsite backup means that you backup is on same machine as your website or at least in same data center. This will help in case you configure something wrong or any other problem from your side. Since you will have backup right on the same disk, you can restore quickly.
But what if problem is with computer? Lets say your server crashes. Then what?
That is when offsite backup will help you!
Offsite means that backup is stored on a computer outside the data center. Even if your server is destroyed, you just have to get a new server and restore from old backup.
But keeping backups is not easy. You have so many things to handle!
Fear not, we are here to help. Under our WordPress Maintenance Service, we take following backups.
- Daily Backup: We retain backups for last 3 days on your server as well as on our servers. In case of any problems, we can restore your blog in 15-20 minutes.
- Weekly Backup: We keep 4 weekly backups on our servers.
- Monthly Backup: 6 monthly backups are stored on our secure servers.
Using above approach, we keep upto 6 months old copies of your blog ready to be restored anytime!
Free Content Delivery Network
When you get hosting, you get a single server in one corner of world. Let us say you have your server in New York. This means that your website will be lightning fast for people in New York. But, it will take a few microseconds more for someone in Japan. Depending on network, these microseconds can turn into seconds.
And a slow site is never good!
This is where a CDN comes in. A content delivery network is a worldwide group of servers that stores a temporary copy of your content and delivers to a visitor from nearest location.
And during setup, we also add W3 Total Cache plugin which not only allows you to use CDN but also adds many other caching features to your blog.
WordPress, Plugin and Theme Upgrades
When upgrading, you can never be sure about something breaking. An old plugin might cause problems or the theme may not work properly.
We remove this uncertainty for you. First, we will upgrade your blog, plugins and themes and then check if everything is working fine. If anything breaks, we fix it.
We know the technicalities like the need to resave the data in Shareoholic plugin, so you can always count on us!
One of the most shocking scenarios that you can have as a blog owner is waking up one morning and finding out that your blog is down. It may be due to a rush of traffic or a server fault, but no matter what the reason, it is not good for your business.
With our WordPress Maintenance Plan, we offer free uptime monitoring. If your blog goes down for an extended period of time, we will let you know and investigate the issue.
Even if it is not a problem caused by us, we offer discounts for our maintenance plan customers on troubleshooting.
Think of blog as a car for a moment.
WordPress is just body of your car. It’s the content that matters. And the content is your fuel. It is stored in your fuel tank. If fuel tank is not working properly, your blog will not function!
The database is fuel tank of your blog. It has all the content and is a vital part.
However, it also gets dirty like a normal fuel tank. Normal fuel tank accumulates dirt. The database is cluttered by junk data technically called “overhead”.
We regularly clean this junk data under our WordPress Maintenance Plan so that you don’t have to. This ensures that your database is always fast.
