Ongoing updates and security for WordPress websites

Ongoing updates and security
for WordPress websites

Dear WordPress website owner,

WordPress powers 28% of the web now. This is because it is free, versatile and easy for anyone to use.

Unfortunately, its popularity also makes it fertile hunting ground for hackers.

So, every WordPress website needs continuous monitoring and technical upkeep for security, stability and performance.

In order for you or your team to keep up with this, you need to...

  1. Login once a week
  2. Make sure you have a current backup (in case something crashes your site during the update)
  3. Update all the plugins and WordPress Core if needed.
  4. Review the site to make sure it’s still operating as it should
  5. Test all forms (before & after) updates

Doesn't seem like much, but 20 to 30 minutes a week, all year long adds up! And that doesn't include the occasional plugin problem. Or, heaven forbid! the need to restore your whole site after an intrusion.

If you would rather pay someone who knows WordPress and keeps up with WordPress security issues, I am introducing three levels of ‘Webkeeping Services.'

Housekeeping Plan

The first level, my "Housekeeping Plan," includes:

  • An initial security audit and fixes
  • Managed backups with free site restoration
  • Offsite storage of your backups to two different platforms for added safety, and ready retrieval from any location
  • Continuous monitoring of site uptime/downtime and free communication with your hosting service in the event of a problem
  • Continuous updates of plugins, and free debugging in the event of a conflict
  • Form testing whenever your form plugin is updated
  • Monthly scans for malware
  • Immediate updates when I am notified of a vulnerability by the WordPress security community
  • Continuous monitoring of comments for spam and unrelated ‘pingbacks’
  • A Monthly Report on the status of your site, recommendations for improvement and any news or alerts related to the care and feeding of your WP website

This is a 'reactive' plan; in other words, it fixes the problem after an attack. For a more 'proactive' plan, one that 'hardens' your site to attacks, check out my Guardian Plan below.

Guardian Plan

For businesses that have a more dynamic website, especially if you need to protect private customer information. This is the 'poactive’ level of service, which shields your site from attack.

This is plan you need if your site keeps getting attacked after repeated restorations.

The Guardian Plan includes:

  • Everything in the Housekeeping Plan, PLUS...
  • A 30-point security upgrade
  • Development of a 'Website Security Plan' (a PDF with tutorials) for you and your staff
  • Weekly scans for malware
  • Prevention from ‘brute force attacks’ on your passwords
  • Free restoration in the event of an attack

Monthly plans can be cancelled anytime.

Feel Secure

While no one can guarantee your website will never be hacked, you can feel secure in the knowledge that your site is being monitored by a professional, and that it is continuously available to your customers—not being used for spam or pharmaceutical ads!

Please call, text or email me find out more.

To Your Success!

About Christine Golden

Skilled coder, resourceful craftswoman, experienced project manager and team player. I have been providing web design and development services for others since 2008.

I live in the panhandle of Florida on Golden Acres Ranch in Jefferson County. I work from the office building called "The Old Library" in the small town of Monticello.

My education is in Zoology and Biochemistry. I've always been a fan of science - fiction and otherwise.

Yes, I am a 'boomer.' I grew up without internet and worked in the civil engineering and construction industry where I developed a good work ethic and project management skills.

I'm so glad to now be part of the internet-age, where knowledge and encouragement can reach into the most isolated corners of humanity. I'm especially grateful to the open-source community, without whom I wouldn't have discovered the magic of coding. Solving puzzles, bringing order, and watching bits of data turn into beauty and human usefulness is what makes coding poetry to me.
