FAQ

Why do I need maintenance for my WordPress website?

These are the 4 most important reasons.

1) Protection: an outdated website is exposed to security threats. Keeping WordPress, plugins, and themes on your website up-to-date will prevent your website from being vulnerable to malware infections and external attacks. Moreover, such updates must be done by a professional to avoid possible conflicts with other parts of the web.

2) Optimization: with each update of WordPress or its plugins, apart from solving security holes, code is also optimized and the performance of the web is improved, so in the end your web improves the loading speed. Furthermore, the database needs your care as well, as if it were a car.

3) Backups: since you never know when a website may go down (for whatever reason), it is vital to have a backup and, even more important, know how to restore them.

4) SEO: Google knows when a website is not well maintained, due to various factors, and that can harm your SEO ranking.

What’s included in the “essential” maintenance and the “advanced” maintenance?

With the “essential” maintenance I will install WordPress updates, themes and plugins monthly.

With the “advanced” maintenance, WordPress updates, themes and plugins will be installed weekly.

Also, in both cases, I will check that the new updates do not cause new compatibility problems with other parts of your website.

In the included work time, what type of work do you do and how do I communicate with you?

Whichever plan you choose, you have X minutes/hours of work available (it depends on the plan), and that includes anything you want related to your website.

To request it, simply write me an email at gerard@gerardblanco.com.

What payment methods can I use?

I currently only accept credit/debit cards; it is the safest system and with the least commissions for both.

Do you take care of WooCommerce sites?

Of course!

How much time will it take to start the service?

As soon as I receive the payment and all the requested information. This is usually 24-48-72 hours after payment is sent. I’ll let you know 😉

Must my website meet certain requirements before starting with the maintenance?

Yes, your website must not be in poor technical condition as a result of “hacking”, virus or malware infections, misuse of the administration panel, or similar. If it is, and you agree, it will be fixed based on the hourly price defined in the terms and conditions.

How much does it cost to restore a site from a backup if needed?

All necessary restores are included in all plans for free.

What’s included in security management?

Apart from keeping backups of the files and the website database, I will apply the necessary measures to keep the website safe and protected against potential malicious attacks. That includes installing and configuring one of the best security plugins and I will add or remove the necessary code that improves protection.

What are the monthly reports?

Every month I will send you a report with everything that has been done as part of the maintenance.
