With your Professional Website Management subscription, you will receive a brand new, professional-grade WordPress website designed to suit your business (all Silvercode websites are completely responsive across desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile devices).

  • Adjusting/adding/removing social media links/integrations.
  • Publishing/editing/deleting blog posts/news items/testimonials.

The above inclusions cover most changes you’ll ever need including everything from text/picture modifications all the way up to complete re-builds.

What’s not included is the building of custom software to provide functionality that is not already available by default in WordPress. If custom functionality is requested, we will attempt to source a suitable, ready-built WordPress plugin, then install it, set it up and maintain it for you as part of your website. While a large volume of WordPress plugins are free, there are many premium plugins whose developer’s impose a small fee to purchase/use their custom software.

We will always advise you first if your requested changes require a premium plugin that will incur any additional costs. If a plugin breaks, it will remain the responsibility of the original developer to fix it, though we will of course manage correspondence with the developer to find a resolution, else find an alternative.

It is extremely rare that there would be any functionality requested that cannot be achieved with ready-built WordPress plugins. Should the situation occur that a requested functionality is so complex that there is no ready-built plugin to suit, Silvercode will be able to advise you of your best options on a case by case basis.

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

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, how many theme/plugin/WordPress core updates were performed on your website, daily security scan statistics, uptime and more!

Maintenance

One of the most critical parts about having a website is ensuring it is kept secure, up-to-date and running smoothly.

An average WordPress website will typically need at least 10 – 20 software updates per month, to patch against the latest security threats and keep plugins and themes up-to-date. If these updates are not properly managed, or worse, left neglected, a website will become increasingly vulnerable to attack as well as suffer increasing visual and functional problems.

It is also critical to have regular backups, security scans and uptime monitoring in place, to help protect against your website becoming unavailable, hacked or suffering data loss, as well as provide a recovery option should the worst happen.
