FAQs for WordPress Management

The questions below are relevant to Management only clients, not design or redesign clients.

Why should I backup my WordPress website?

No website will ever be 100% secure. There are just too many things trying to compromise your website so it can get to your visitors. Don’t take it personal, but protect your website as best as you can.

Am I locked into a long-term contract?

Nope. I believe in earning your continued business, therefore this service is offered on a month-to-month basis and there is no contract. You can cancel anytime, but there is a one-time fee if you want to sign up again in the future. Service can begin the day after you sign up and end the day after you cancel. Refunds will not be given, so if you do want to cancel, please do so in a timely manner. If your reoccurring payment is not paid on time, I will assume you want to cancel and service will be discontinued.

What happens if I miss a payment?

If your recurring payment is not paid on time, I will assume you want to cancel and service will be discontinued. Once you miss a payment, you will not be able to participate in this program for 2 months.  If after the 2 months has passed, and you would like to use this service again, there will be a one-time fee of $50, because a lot can happen in just a few months. The next month, you can resume this service for $15/month.

Does it matter where my website is hosted?

It sure doesn’t! We can provide this service regardless of the what server your website is hosted on, and we can work closely with your hosting company if there are any issues that come up.

How much do you charge if I need changes made to my website?

If you have changes you want made to your website, just let me know what you need or want done and I will quote you an estimate. A deposit of 50% of the estimated investment is due prior to work beginning, and the remaining balance is due upon completion. Balance must be paid the same day the work is completed or 5% late charge per day will be added to final invoice.

Can I pay with a credit card?

Yes, you will be sent an invoice each month your WordPress Management Service is active and you can pay using a major credit card or PayPal account. You can also setup a recurring payment so you will not have to think about the payment, it will just happen automatically.

What happens if an update breaks my website?

If the website breaks due to an update I performed and I can fix it immediately (an obvious or known issue), I will. First, I will do my best to ensure compatibility before I update plugins, themes, or WordPress versions, but sometimes unexpected results occur and things break.  In those rare cases, I will quickly repair the issue and contact the plugin or theme developer so they can work on patching the issue. If the fix is unknown or not immediate, I will roll the site back to the most recent backup (completed before the update).

What happens if my website is compromised or flagged as malware by Goggle?

Please, first understand that hackers could constantly be trying to find a way to compromise or install malware on your website. If this does happen, also understand that you would be one of the thousands of websites that are hacked every day. I can quickly help you resolve this issue and clear your flags from search engines.
