Anne Bowman DTS Innovations

Very happy we found WP Maintainer. Being focused on content, we needed a host and team that was reliable and knew what they were doing so we didn’t have to worry. Our site(s) have been up, secure, protected, and updated. They’re also a big help when we need to make changes to support our content and marketing goals. Love that we can escalate requests to senior developers. Five stars!

Common Questions

Scan your website for out of date software, security, and SEO concerns and get a free, actionable site check.

How much does it cost?

Our core service is a $99 per month subscription that includes:

  • WordPress core, theme, and plugin updates
  • Backups at a schedule that works for your site/publishing schedule
  • Security scanning and clean-up in partnership with Sucuri’s industry leading website security service
  • On-Demand Support from quality WordPress developers, available at $99 per hour (upon approval)

Your minimum cost is $99/month, but you can escalate your needs with our on-demand developer and support team for anything from CSS clean up, fixes, integrations, and more. We never bill you for hourly work without your approval.

What services do you provide?

We provide WordPress core, theme, and plugin updates. We work with you to schedule regular backups using a schedule and implementation method that works for you and your website (limitations may apply, ask us how).

Security auditing, lockdown, scanning, and cleanup are also included – you can also subscribe to our Website Firewall, featuring Sucuri CloudProxy, that will help increase performance and stop attacks before they start.

Speaking of performance, we offer a monthly add-on to enhance your site performance – this includes both auditing and measuring performance (including Google PageSpeed Insights and Web Vitals scores). This may include compression, image optimization, database optimization, caching, CDN (content delivery network) implementation, minimizing and minify requests, and more.

On-Demand Developer Support is also easily accessible at a rate of $99/hour for enhancements, coding, implementations, and small to medium design tweaks.

Do customers get free updates to content?

While we do not offer unlimited free fixes or content updates, we are faster than the average user. You may request content updates as part of our on-demand service but we encourage customers to group all updates into one organized batch in order to conserve the final cost for on-demand support requests.

Do you provide unlimited free fixes?

At WP Maintainer, your core subscription covers regular updates, backups, and up to one hour of troubleshooting (or rollback to a latest backup) if an update our team makes causes an error or break on your website. Unfortunately, we do not offer unlimited free fixes but do offer high quality on-demand developer support at a lower rate than working direct with a high-end agency.

Don’t worry, when we can, we will help you for free and will always include more where we can!
