What is WordPress website maintenance?

We work with a whole host of different Content Management Systems (CMS), but by far one of the most popular is WordPress. This is due to its ability to be fully flexible, create bespoke websites, be easy to use and be very secure.

Each CMS requires a different set of skills to maintain as they all have varying components, plugins and integrations. If you have a WordPress website, then you’ll likely need an agency that is well-versed in WordPress specific website maintenance.

Some common WordPress website updates include thematic updates, plugin updates, page speed optimisation, technical SEO audits and much more! Not only does this ensure that any additional features beyond the basic WordPress theme are up to date, but it also ensures that your website remains secure and customer’s data remains safe.

With a thoughtful and well designed WordPress maintenance package like ours, you can be sure that your site remains in great health, giving your business the best chance of generating new leads through your website, whilst also building up reliable relationships with existing ones.

    WordPress Website Maintenance Faqs

    WordPress websites require maintenance to help patch security vulnerabilities and also get the latest WordPress and plugin functionality to help ensure that your WordPress website doesn’t get hacked but that it’s also fully compatible with the latest technology and works seamlessly with other third-party plugins.

    On top of that, WordPress maintenance goes further:

    Optimising your website for Google Page Insights which will ensure swift loading of your website and also help support your SEO efforts.

    Cleaning up your database as it may not just be code that slows down your website, it is important to also look after and clean your database for optimal performance.

    Yes – When maintained properly!

    As with any piece of software, at their time of release they are always at their most secure – until a new vulnerability/exploit is found!

    By maintaining your WordPress website and keeping plugins and themes up to date you reduce the risk of vulnerabilities and stand the best chance of keeping your WordPress website secure.

    As part of keeping WordPress secure, plugins such as Sucuri and Wordfence can be used to firstly try and block any malicious attacks – adding an extra layer of security through a firewall – and also lock down any vulnerable folders that could be easily exploited/hijacked.

    By not updating your WordPress platform – Along with WordPress plugins and themes, you run the risk of your WordPress website being hacked and/or hijacked.

    Once hacked, a WordPress website can take a lot of time to clean up, usually a good 3-5 days depending on how bad the hack is.

    The most common solution that people try is to revert a back up to fix the issue, however exploited files can lay dormant for weeks, even months and so reverting a backup wont necessary clean the root cause – Leaving your website to be exploited/hijacked again usually within days. Some of the common signs of a WordPress hack/hijack are:

    Random pop ups appearing on your website with unusual content in them.
    Your whole website redirecting to another website.
    Thousands of pages, usually in Japanese appearing in your sitemap and search results

    Depending on the size of the update and number of items to update we usually recommend up to 2 hours for the absolute basic updates such as WordPress & WordPress plugin updates.

    Any issues that are caused by the updates would then need to be worked out.

    On top of that, Page speed optimisation and database clean ups can take a further 2 hours.

    We recommend a minimum of 5 hours per month to update and maintain your WordPress website.

    It is always best practice to patch plugins and WordPress as soon as an update becomes available.

    We always recommend updating your WordPress install, plugins and any themes at least once a month at the very bare minimum.

    Our website maintenance service includes:
    Set up a staging server – To allow the work to be done in a safe environment.
    Updating WordPress – Then checking the update has worked and not caused any issues.
    Updating plugins – Then again checking the updates have worked and not caused any issues.
    Page speed – Working on your Google Page insights metrics to get your website score as high as possible.
    General website health check – Ensuring sitemaps are created, there are no broken links or 404 errors and that your website is in generally good health. /p>

    Every day!
    Most hosts such as Guru and WPEngine offer this as a very basic service and automatically back up your website each day.
    As part of the maintenance service, we would take manual back ups before doing any work and before moving anything live as an additional precaution.

    5 hours – £475+vat per month
    10 hours – £900+vat per month

    Any unused hours roll over for up to 3 months.

    The process for updating a WordPress website is as follows:
    Take a live backup – Leave nothing to chance and ensure there’s always a backup should anything ever go wrong.
    Set up a staging server – A separate environment to your live environment so changes do not affect your live website until fully tested.
    Update WordPress – Update the main WordPress files and test for any issues.
    Update plugins – Once WordPress is update, we will then update plugins and test for any issues.
    Update any themes – If you have any parent themes in place, we will get this updated and check for any issues.
    Security audit – Ensure Sucuri and Wordfence are set up correctly and protecting your site the best that they can.
    Flush your database – Remove any unused drafts/revision files and any transients which may be slowing your website down.
    Provide you with a report – Once everything is completed on the staging server, you will be provided with a report and test URL so that you can check the website over before going live.
    Take a live back up again – Before going live we will take another back up to ensure we are at the latest version.
    Go live – Once you are happy, we will go live, test for issues again and then let you know once completed.
