managed wordpress hosting

Any website owner who runs WordPress knows that updates to plugins, themes and WordPress itself are a regular, often weekly occurrence.

Not performing these upgrades regularly can leave you with a broken or insecure website.

Manually updating themes and plugins and taking the VITAL backup of your files, folders and databases before doing so can become a regular drain on your time. Our WordPress update service solves all these issues for you.

There are two options for ordering this service:

1. Upgrade to one of our fully managed WordPress hosting accounts

Our fully managed WordPress hosting accounts take away all your update headaches. In a nutshell, we will maintain your WordPress site's programming for you.

These special hosting accounts include:

  • Daily checking for outdated WordPress versions and installation of new versions. This includes manual updating of any repository premium plugins.
  • Daily checking for outdated WordPress plugins and installation of new versions.
  • Daily checking for outdated WordPress themes and installation of new versions **.
  • Daily checking for outdated WordPress frameworks and installation of new versions.
  • Advise you when a plugin is no longer compatible with WordPress and needs replacing.***

Please note that this service is limited to updating the plugins or themes to their latest version for you. We will not check them for functionality after the update. We have hundreds of clients using thousands of plugins, it is impossible for us to monitor all functionality of all our client sites. As a website owner, it is your responsibility to make sure your site is working as you would like it to. Of course, if you have an issue with any functionality, we are here to help you fix that.

**Theme upgrades apply to minor releases only. If your theme releases a major update that fundamentally alters programming, it may take more time and be charged separately. We will inform you if that is the case.

***This service includes monitoring and updating of plugins only. If we advise you that one of your plugins is no longer being developed and/or needs replacing for security reasons, we will charge you for our time to find an alternative plugin that performs the same task. We will install it for you.

Free if you host your website with 3001Web.

£9.99 per month if you host elsewhere.
