WordPress Security and Maintenance Plans
WordPress makes up over 35% of all websites, which unfortunately also makes it a prime target for hacking attempts. This doesn’t mean WordPress isn’t still a great base for your site, only that it requires a certain level of maintenance and vigilance to make sure your site is protected.
The WordPress team is committed to responding to all known loopholes within the core and securing them accordingly – each new release addresses any new known vulnerabilities, thus it’s important to keep your WordPress install up to date.
In addition, your plugins need to be updated and checked regularly to make sure they cooperate with the WordPress core updates. We do our best to use plugins that we know are trusted and well maintained, but even those need tweaks from time to time.
Our Maintenance plans ensure the health of your site by providing regular updates and monthly check-ins to keep your site in good shape. When your site is regularly updated, future edits and features are faster, more efficient, and more cost effective as well.
Supporting local communities and the environment is important to us! That’s why we donate 1 percent of all sales to socially and environmentally progressive initiatives.
The Fine Print
*Any site that grows to over 50,000 visitors/mo, over 2GB storage, or over 3GB bandwidth must be transitioned to hosting on a client-owned WPEngine account and paid for separately. Hosting for sites of this volume on Mangrove’s servers are not included in these maintenance plans.
*Plugins added by the client post-launch are not covered for inclusive “fix its”.
Email plans are not included with WPEngine. We are happy to help set up email via google apps or your domain registrar (at our current hourly rates.)
E-commerce maintenance rates vary – please contact us for an estimate.
If you would rather not sign up for any maintenance plan, Mangrove Web Development will not be responsible for any future issues until contacted directly. We do not recommend this option unless you have another developer or are confident in managing your site updates and backup yourself. Any updates or security fixes will be billed at our currently hourly rate.
