We offer (and recommend) monthly hosting through our “WPEngine” server. WPEngine* (https://www.wpengine.com) is a WordPress-specific hosting platform with outstanding security, reliability and speed.
Included in our hosting package are weekly updates to the WordPress software and plugins. It is important that we perform these updates to keep your site secure and running smoothly. Before we perform these updates each month, we back up/stage your website and thoroughly test the updates before launching them into the live hosting environment.
Included in your hosting/maintenance account:
- One-click website backup and/or restore (up to 30 days in the past)
- Easily create a staging environment for your website as we roll out new features
- Integrated SSL certificate (so the site runs from https:// – this provides more security and SEO strength)
- Integrated CDN (Content Delivery Network) which will help serve files faster and increase site speed.
- Integrated Site Caching (for faster download speeds)
- Performance Monitoring
- Security Monitoring
- Monthly report which covers site performance, uptime, and more.
- You will get access to the WPEngine Dashboard where you can access direct WPEngine 24/7 support if you ever need it.
