Hosting & Care Plans

  Hosting & Care

FOR YOUR NEW WEBSITE

We know that choosing WordPress Hosting can be daunting. There’s so many options and not all operators have the best reputation, making it hard to understand what you are actually getting for your monthly fee.

And then there is website maintenance to think about – plugin updates, backups to the cloud, security and form checks and small changes that you just never seem to find the time to make.

Over the years, many of our client have told us they simply don’t have time to look after their website they way they’d like to. They’ve invested money into this great sales tool, but with business growing and no IT staff, they struggle to keep up with those crucial tasks that keep the site fast, reliable and secure.

That’s why we’ve launched WordPress website hosting and care plans that take the stress, time and hassle off your plate, so you can focus on what you do best – growing your business.

Do I even need Hosting & Website Maintenance?

If you have a WordPress website, you need hosting. It’s available from hundreds of providers, all with different inclusions and prices… but not all hosts are created equal. Some have thousands of websites on each server, increasing your risk of being hacked. Some website hosts look like good value on the surface, but make even a well built site run sloooooow. Others refuse to guarantee uptime, have terrible customer support, or charge you extra for basics like backups and SSL (security) certificates.

In the same way that a car needs a regular service, your website needs a little TLC each month to make the most of your investment, and keep it working at its best. Your website is working for your business 24 hours a day, and now that you’ve made the investment in a great new site, the last thing you want to end up with is slow load times, security issues, broken forms, or a page that simple doesn’t look the way it should.

We’ve partnered with one of the world’s fastest and most reliable web hosts, Cloudways, to deliver ‘Hosting Only’, and ‘Hosting + Care’ plans for our website clients. Our team can keep your site working as beautifully as the day it launched, while helping you with small updates and changes as you grow.

Please note that our hosting and care plans are based on our website packages, if your site is larger or has different functionality, extra charges may apply.

Good to know…

We’ll work proactively to support and protect your site, but even the best hosting and maintenance can’t guarantee you’ll never face a problem. No matter which Hosting or Care Plan you are on, sometimes issues that arise are outside the scope of our support.

The following are a few items that are out of scope for our plans:

 

  • Any domain registration issues.
    Debugging custom code or anything that implies code editing
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO) beyond what is included in your initial website build.
  • Migrating your site from our Wild Honey Creative / Cloudways servers to another service or hosting provider.
  • While we will keep your website up to date and secure to the best of our ability, some breakages are beyond our control. Should a breakage occur that we are not responsible for, requiring more than the allocated amount of time in your Care Plan, payment may be required to fix.
  • In the unlikely event of your site being hacked, we will take steps to lessen the severity of the breach, which may include shutting the site down completely for a time (don’t worry, we will have a backup). You may be required to undergo site cleaning or site restoration at your own expense.
