Website Insurance Plans

Let’s optimize and secure your website

Your website was created using WordPress, which requires regular software updates that address known vulnerabilities. The most common method for hackers to gain access is through outdated files. By keeping your core files, plugins, and other files up to date, we can keep your site safe and running at an optimum level.

Equally important are site backups. While it’s never pleasant to think about, in the event that your website is ever hacked, your hosting fails or an update breaks your site beyond repair, those backups are key. They will save you a ton of time money to recreating your website.

In addition to proactive security and backups, it’s also important to optimize your website in order to increase load times. Google (and other search engines) will dock slow websites but is also important to remember that your visitors won’t stick around and wait, either. If they can’t access your information quickly, they will stop visiting, costing you business.

Your site can be optimized using a combination of methods, each addressing various parts of your website. These optimizations include regular database cleanups, caching and image and file compression.

Together, these regular efforts will boost website load times while ensuring that your database is lean and visitors have a superior user experience.

Colleen LeMasters Creative offers insurance plans that will take care of this maintenance for you.

Added bonus for clients with CLC-designed sites: premium plugin costs are covered.

From time to time, I may employ the use of a premium plugin to achieve optimal functionality for your custom website. These premium plugins frequently come with an annual fee in order to access the most up-to-date versions and this is always discussed before purchasing. When you choose the Ultimate package, those fees are covered for as long as you continue your Ultimate package.

With the Ultimate package, you can also rest assured knowing that any patches and fixes will be applied as part of your plan at no additional charge.

Due to licensing, premium plugins installed by other designers are not included in this plan.

While the Essential package covers backups, as well core file and plugin updates, the Ultimate package includes those updates AND fixes to any conflicts that may arise, saving you the headache of worrying if anything broke during the update. Also included is the extra layer of optimizations to increase page speed and security, giving you greater peace of mind that your website is speedy and secure and leaving you with more time to focus on other areas of your business.
