WordPress Maintenance, Hosting & Support

We find that most of our clients are relieved that we offer WordPress maintenance, hosting and support for their website in contrary to other agencies who will drop everything in their lap once the site is launched. Business owners and marketing directors really shouldn’t have to waste their precious time dealing with overseas hosting support, slow/cheap inefficient hosting and maintaining all their plugin, theme and core updates themselves. They want to spend their time focusing on bringing in sales, running their operations and maintaining their business.

At 1Brand Design, we not only provide affordable and quality WordPress development, hosting & support—we take the time to train our clients so they can add users and build new content on their own. Our team will do all the dirty work behind the scenes of installing the plugins and functionality you may need for your new site and then maintain all of it in order to keep your site running smooth and secure. WordPress is a very robust and flexible website CMS system, and although it’s used by millions of sites, it’s a software that takes up a lot of resources and needs to be maintained regularly.

No matter your industry, a WordPress website needs adequate hosting to run smoothly. WordPress updates will need to be periodically updated to avoid security vulnerabilities and to get new features.

1Brand WordPress Development team can take all of the work off your shoulders so you can focus on running your business. Let us take care of the website stuff.

Why do I need a WordPress support plan?

Simply put, you don’t. You can technically take care of WordPress yourself with some basic web development and sys admin skills, the question becomes—do you have the time and dedication to learn how to backup your site correctly, maintain WordPress plugins and software as well as do various administrative and web development tasks?

Wordpress DevelopementIf you do not have time to learn and perform these tasks (most business owners don’t) we’ve got your back. We sometimes like to use this comparison—WordPress is the engine, your website is the exterior/interior.

You can spend lots of time and hours updating your interior/exterior and have it as flashy and luxurious as you want. If you don’t maintain your engine, you’re going to be out of luck. WordPress needs your love. It can’t go unattended too long. If you don’t carefully maintain your software, your site could, and mostly will, get hacked or affected by some type of malware or incompatible updates eventually.

Many people decide to use WordPress and then end up spending money in a crisis because they have not properly maintained their plugins, or updated the WordPress core software. It’s easy to forget WordPress is a piece of software, no different than the operating system for your computer. If you don’t maintain it, people can hack it. Your files can be deleted, and there are thousands, if not millions, of bots actively attacking every WordPress site on the internet at any given time. For more information on why you need a WordPress developer or support plan, check out recent our blog post.

Think about this and how much time, energy and money you’ve put into your site. Is it worth a few extra bucks to maintain? We hope so.

Can I do WordPress development myself?

Absolutely. We encourage you to learn WordPress and be comfortable updating your site if you have the time and resources. Depending on your install, we will work with you one-on-one and train you via video conferencing. You’ll be able to setup your account, add blog posts and articles, format your text and more.

Our clients are always amazed at how easy WordPress is to use, and how much is at your fingertips in terms of free plugins and software from developers with great ratings and support.

We strive to make our customers feel confident about using their website and posting articles and blog entries themselves. When asked, we will help new users or admins get started by walking them through a series of brief, novice WordPress tasks such as posting an article or blog post—there is nothing to fear!
