Most modern websites are built using a Content Management System. These require regular updating to ensure security and compatibility with the frameworks and feature modules. Regular backups of the website files and database are also recommended before each update is performed. These updates and backups can be done ‘in-house’, but they should be performed by someone with knowledge of using cpanel, ftp clients, and the Content Management System which your website is using. Websites which are older or websites which are not build with a Content Management System require the use of an FTP to change or add new content.

We offer a variety of maintenance packages if you would like us to take care of all the updates for you.

Basic Maintenance:
£8.33 per month

Regular updates to the Content Management System and Plugins/Extensions, with backups taken of the Website Files, and Database(s)

Advanced Maintenance:
£18.33 per month

Monthly analytic reports (if required)

Plus 2 hours of edits per month (these can be used for updating text, images, adding pages or articles* etc). Cannot be rolled over.

*Content supplied by you.

Pre-Pay Time:
£25 for 2 hour blocks (a 50% saving on our ad-hoc pricing). Time bought with Pre-Pay does not expire, and there is no monthly ongoing charge.

Pre-Pay for blocks of hours (2 hrs minimum) in which you can request work to be carried out. This can either be requests for updates to the Core WordPress files, Plugins, or Text and Image edits. You can even use these hours to request new features added. We will advise you on how much time the job will take up and deduct this from your Time Balance. If a job will take more time than your current Balance, you may either purchase more or pay the difference. If a new feature request requires an outlay to a 3rd party company (a premium plugin for example) which is higher than the value of your pre-paid Time, we will notify you of additional cost which would be required to complete the request.

Ad-hoc Maintenance:

One off maintenance requests, outside of a maintenance plan, are billed at £12.50 per half hour (half hour minimum).
