  • Constant uptime monitoring.

You may have as many pages as you wish and are welcome to add more at any time.

Silvercode can manage your domain registration(s) for you, ensuring they point your website and email traffic to the correct places. Domain Registration itself is also available as an added extra (Domain Registration pricing can be found here).

If you choose to have a global domain (such as a domain ending with .com) we will ensure domain privacy is applied to keep your personal details hidden from the public WHOIS directory.

At the beginning of every month, we send out a comprehensive report on the care of your website. This report includes such information as your website’s traffic statistics (powered by Google Analytics), a summary of how many backups were taken, a summary of how many theme/plugin/WordPress core updates were performed on your website, website speed performance, daily security scan statistics, uptime and more.

All Silvercode websites are given an allowance of 5GB of storage space on highly reliable, Australian web hosting. We also include and manage DNS hosting for your website (though if you wish to manage this yourself externally, you are more than welcome to).

All Silvercode websites are issued with an SSL Certificate which gives them the ability to display the green padlock in the browser address bar. An SSL certificate ensures that data sent between your users and your website is encrypted and secure, and helps to build trust with your visitors.

Silvercode websites are all given market-leading caching technology, which gives our sites a 30 – 50 times speed increase.

We provide any-time access to your live website visitor statistics, as well as a summary as part of your monthly report. With Google Analytics, you will be able to view a comprehensive break-down covering your real-time and past visitors, including demographic statistics, time spent on your site, which pages are being visited, and so much more.

We also manage and monitor your website’s indexing on the Google search engine, including the initial submission of your sitemap.

While Silvercode does not provide comprehensive Search Engine Optimisation services, our websites are all built with standard SEO good-practices, sufficient for most small businesses.

Your website will be fitted with the industry-leading Yoast SEO plugin, which automatically optimises many aspects of your website. The Yoast SEO plugin provides an analysis of your text content, taking considerations such as keyword density, keyword placement, title optimisation, meta descriptions and content length. This will assist you to ensure your text content is optimised for search engines.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee any particular pagerank. Rankings may organically improve over time and most of our customers find this level of Search Engine Optimisation adequate.

Comprehensive SEO requires a long-term and often complex undertaking involving a vast array of actions such as back-linking and regular optimised content distribution. This is best managed by a professional, dedicated SEO agency. Silvercode can recommend options for clients wishing to pursue SEO in more depth. The cost of professional SEO generally falls between $2000 – $5000 per month, and is payable directly to your chosen SEO agency.

Silvercode websites are guarded by market-leading security software, to protect them from a range of online threats including spammers, SQL injection, DDOS and more.

Silvercode websites are given an unlimited allowance of premium, fully redundant bandwidth.

At no extra charge, we are able to provide Privacy Policy, Terms of Use & Email Disclaimer templates for you to use on your website, written by reputable Australian lawyers and valued at over $899 AUD.
