Don’t leave your digital assets vulnerable to hackers and malware!

There are many different factors that impact a websites performance and vulnerability, but the worst offender is simply letting your software get out of date! Which includes your core WordPress installation, themes, plugins and server-side scripts like PHP, and that is just to start.

If that last sentence has your hand whooshing over your head, then you need a Webmaster.

What does a Webmaster do?

A Webmaster is your guru for all your web/email systems. They monitor your server, keep regular backups, update your software and troubleshoot problems with your email accounts. Large organisations will employ an in-house Webmaster, but for 99.9% businesses, that is not necessary (or possible!).

If web technology is not your jam, it can be incredibly frustrating and easy to forget. Which leaves your website vulnerable to hacking attempts, or broken code and poor site performance.

Let us take the thorn out of your side in keeping your website and digital assets up to date, without the cost of payroll.

If you would prefer to host your site somewhere else, no worries, we won’t take offence! We are happy to manage your site wherever it is, at a reduced monthly rate.

While we will do everything we can to ensure your website is fully operational, we cannot offer our full guarantees on external hosting servers. Things like page load speeds, automated server backups, SSL etc are dependent on the quality of your hosting plan.

We do offer free website migrations if you’d like to change over!

It is also important to note that we work exclusively with WordPress, so if your site is built on something else we are not your people!

No! You are free to cancel your webmaster services at any time, although we have no idea why anyone would want to do that. Seriously.

Minor tweaks are anything that can be achieved in 30 mins or less, which includes:

  • Uploading new photos
  • Changing existing text content or links
  • Uploading blog posts that you’ve written (limited formatting)
  • Adding buttons, content boxes or other highlights
  • Changing or adding fields to existing forms
  • Fixing anything that is broken or out of date

Minor tweaks pretty much includes everything except for: adding NEW pages, copywriting, most graphic designs etc. If you’re not sure, please let us know!

If your site ‘breaks’ or is hacked, then we will immediately begin work to repair it. If the repair doesn’t work, we will restore a backup of the site from within the last 48 hours and work to harden your website against future attacks.

eCommerce comes in two categories:

  1. Service businesses that take online payments
    Service businesses who accept online payments through external gateways like PayPal or accounting software are covered by our plans on this page as they are.
  2. Full online web stores selling physical (or digital) products.
    Full eCommerce stores with advanced features and large databases are not covered by these plans.Your eCommerce shop needs extra love and attention, so your monthly maintenance rate will be slightly more. Starting at an additional $10/month, depending on the size of your store. Please reach out to discuss your options!
