Weekly plugin and theme updates

Plugin updates are performed on a weekly basis. If you would like us to update your theme as well, we highly recommend installing a child theme to prevent losing customizations. If you are not sure if you have a child theme installed, we are happy to have a look for you.

Secure offsite backups

Just like you back up your computer it is important to backup your site on a regular basis. WP Custodian backs up your content daily and does a full backup weekly. If you like we can send the backup to your dropbox or a different cloud storage solution.

SPAM & revision cleanup & Database optimization

SPAM is ever growing and even with a good filter plugin (ask us about a recommendation) your storage and database can get so loaded that your site gets slow. The same goes for all those revisions you make before you post on your blog

Security Monitoring

In the last years we have seen a large increase in cyber attacks. Unfortunately WordPress websites are often a target. When you sign up we will do a security review for you and suggest improvements. After that we will actively scan your websites for malware and attacks.

Email support up to 30 minutes per month of help if needed

We are here for your WordPress related questions. Just send us an email and we’ll get back to you asap. If you need more than 30 minutes of help in a given month we will gladly give our WP Custodian clients a preferred rate for the “Fix My WordPress” program

Please note!

Secure passwords and regular updates are the best protection against malware attacks but don’t guarantee your site will ever be affected. Malware removal usually takes several hours. It is not included in this package but we are happy to handle this for a separate fee.
