Having a well-maintained website that is secure, fast and up to date is a very important facet of your web presence and vital to keep your companies online presence in the best shape it can be.

Aside from keeping content up to date it is critical to ensure that the website is performing as it should.  That is why PC Futures offers a comprehensive WordPress website maintenance package.

Our maintenance package covers the following:

  • Weekly remote backups – We take a granular backup of your website and store in in a secure cloud storage facility.
  • Core system regular update – WordPress regularly updates their core system; we take the time to test the update and then if we are happy run it on your website.
  • Monthly routine plugin updates – Plugins are small tools that give you functionality within your WordPress website.  The developers of these plugins from time to time release updates, we check and test them and then run the update on your WordPress website.
  • Weekly critical plugin updates – Some Plugins are critical system tools that require a more tighter schedule for ensuring they are up to date.
  • Monthly database optimisation – behind every good WordPress website there is an optimised database, we ensure it stays that way.
  • Monthly administration of spam comments – If you have blog posts on your WordPress website by default people can leave comments, unfortunately there are also a lot of spam comments, we purge these monthly.
  • Monthly speed tests – Your search rankings can be affected if your site is slow, we check this and then act to try and increase the performance of your site.
  • Monthly contact form tests – it is important to know if you are getting enquiries from your website, we perform a test to make sure you are getting the emails.
  • Free Secure certificate – You are probably aware of the little padlock seen in the address bar of a site. Google now penalises websites without a secure certificate.  We install and manage a secure certificate for you as part of our maintenance package.
  • Weekly firewall and hack check – Using some advanced software in your WordPress website we can view reports on attempted hacks that the software stopped and block those numbers.

Alongside our regular proactive maintenance, we also support your website and help if things do go wrong, all you need to do is call us and we will fix it.

We do typically like to host the WordPress websites as we can then ensure some of the more technical elements of the website can also be managed, however some of our maintenance clients do host elsewhere.

We see our monthly maintenance service as the perfect partner to these other cost effective website services offered by PC Futures, these include: Hosting, Search Engine Optimisation, Content Management and Online Marketing.
