Monthly Maintenance and Support

Do you need help keeping your WordPress website software and plugins current? Do you have someone to watch after the security of your website?

Are you tired of worrying about the security of your WordPress website? Tired of logging into your site and seeing those notices that there’s a WordPress update… and those little number badges telling you that 1 or more of your plugins has an update waiting? No idea what these things mean or how to keep up with them?

Are you like a lot of organizations where you don’t have the resources, and perhaps the skills, to ensure that your website is going to remain running in a stable and secure fashion? Are you on the latest release of WordPress and all of the installed plugins? Or perhaps you don’t even know as you had a company build your site and they aren’t around anymore or don’t offer ongoing support. Well, you’re not alone. Darling Designs saw the need and has stepped forward with a solution just for you.

Best practices for keeping your WordPress website secure and up-to-date include regular upgrades to WordPress software and plugins. We recommend performing these updates at least once a month. These updates come out regularly and most of them include security patches. If you don’t keep up with them, you are at a higher risk for having your site hacked. Although no-one can absolutely guarantee a site’s security, isn’t it much better to keep current on preventive maintenance than to have to hire a security expert to clean up your hacked website?

Ongoing Maintenance Packages

Darling Designs provides an ongoing maintenance and support package for WordPress powered websites that will ensure that your site is running the latest software, is being regularly backed up and is monitored so that you know when your site becomes unavailable before you hear it from someone else.
