Finding a WordPress hosting company that can be trusted and reliable can be difficult, thankfully, we came across Pressidium and never looked back. Their reliability and speed are unmatched to anything […]
We setup and manage absolutely everything – easy! We do all the upgrades and manage WordPress for you so you don’t even need to think about it. We use an Enterprise Pressidium Account with a cluster of 5 servers to house our many clients.
*Billed quarterly at $350/quarter
This is the same supplier we use for our hosting+security service, we highly recommend Pressidium. They are a very good premium option for WordPress websites when you’re happy to do your own upgrades.
Similar to Pressidium. These are "the big name" in WordPress hosting. We used to use them for the Enterprise Cluster we use for our Security+Hosting clients. They offer a lot but we've had a better experience dealing with Pressidium.
We make sure WordPress core on your website is updated to the latest version. But before we push that update live we make sure that there are no bugs or issues in the latest version. Often we’ll wait a few days to update this to the new version to make sure that it is completely secure. There have been cases in the past where the latest WordPress update causes quite severe issues for websites so we are very proactive in preventing this.
We're confident that you'll find that our team in Brisbane walks the walk, and we look after our clients for the long term.
No doubt you've visited a website with broken pages, broken images or even overlapping broken elements on the screen.
When built properly this is an unlikely occurrence but over time the underlying software and necessarily updates to it can mean that even the best websites need some care and attention.
If you find yourself with a few broken elements and just need a quick fix our service can provide an easy-to-use answer.
A recently built WordPress website put together well so that WordPress security updates and page edits are simple to do, and never cause any issues will need far less support than an older brittle website.
Typically clients who try our service are one of the following...
WordPress websites have become increasingly popular in recent times. There is a reason it is the most used Content Management System in the world.
Most website designers in Brisbane these days use it as their main content management system because of its flexibility and ease of use by normal business people. There are constantly plugins that are being developed and updated to make almost anything possible. Some of the smartest minds in website development have been working to create this truly powerful platform.
The entire system is easily updated so you can remain safe and secure but anything custom MUST have been added to the WordPress site "the WordPress way". Over the years I, Ben, have seen some shocking changes made inside the WordPress "Core" or butchery of well-known plugins.
These things did what they needed to for the client's needs... but because they were put in place incorrectly they caused issues, the most common of these are
I guess it depends on your situation whether problem one or two is worse but there is a simple way to avoid them, use a developer with serious experience in WordPress.
Creating a Content Management System of the same complexity of WordPress would cost tens of thousands of dollars... it simply isn't worth doing when WordPress.org provides a free version, and free updates.
The "cost" of using a free to use open source technology like WordPress isn't in a purchase price. The software itself is free (of course).
The cost of ownership is a function of it being super successful. With so many people using WordPress it has become a big target for hackers and scammers who want to break into and utilise your website to do bad things (I won't go into what) but it happens... the "cost" of ownership is in keeping the website secure and prevent bad actors from breaking in.
WordPress make this simple* with security updates that can be applied with a click of a link. We train our clients on how to do this when we hand over the website - AND we show them how to run a backup just beforehand in the very very unlikely event that something goes wrong.
Need to replace this - slides from the WP Business training about WP structure and keeping design, content and code all separated?
Generally clients initially use the website maintenance service to
But, when clients get used to the simple quarterly fee and the transparent approach to project management and communication they often ask us to recommend what other services their budget could help with. This could be...
We two strategies that just seem to have evolved over time, but work very well.
The developer responsible for WordPress security is subscribed to two data sources for alerts about exploits and vulnerabilities in WordPress. We know about issues as soon as the community and WordPress themselves know.
Over the years we've been active members of the WordPress community in Australia. We highly recommend anyone interested in WordPress go along to a WordPress event in their areas.
Yes, the level of transparency we provide, especially when doing maintenance might encourage you to take this work on yourself.
For example: WordPress Security. You simply need to have an aptitude for regular tasks and have somewhere to escalate issues that are beyond your skills (with a small support plan).
NB. Most people who begin doing their own security and updates work decide to put their time in their own business and leave it to the experts.
It is worth noting that clients that host with us get WordPress Security work built into that service.... so they don't need to use their maintenance hours for that.
