What does Ongoing WordPress Site Maintenance Mean For You & Include?
Website maintenance packages can be tailored to YOU, our client’s specific needs. This means you can choose what services you want from the list below. This at least includes the WordPress core, plugins, and themes. Services typically may include a combination of the following:
Unlimited Task Requests
As a subscriber, you can create unlimited task requests of up to 1 Hour Workload per week. (usually charged at £45/each). These can be for general site updates, or bug fixes, or for more complex work. We have WordPress experts on hand to handle your requests.
We Check Your Site Backups every week. Depending on your site size, through our web hosting recommendation. These Backups are kept every 30 days! (If you use a different Web Hosting service, to our recommendation, this option is not available.)
We understand that some things are best explained on the phone. You can call your Support contact and explain your issues, and we’ll guide you through anything else we need to solve them.
Speed up a WordPress Site
A slow site forces a customer to go elsewhere. There are optimizations we can make within limits, that reduce loading times. E.g. caching data to stop a site being slow. This can help cut the bounce rate on your website and improve the experience for your visitors. This request Can only be made ONCE every 3 Months. And is Limited to an Hour of Work. Any more and we let you know what needs to be done and what it may cost.
Fix Contact form errors
Contact forms can provide basic errors, or simply not deliver mail correctly. By working out the logic of where mail goes and why it might not deliver, we can diagnose the problem and provide a solution. Sometimes they clash with other Plugin or WP Updates, We keep an eye on that for you!
Fix dead links
Most WordPress links are dynamically generated, dead links are usually hard links in the WordPress database or cache that have not updated after a URL, plugin, or theme change. Or backlinks you connected out to, if you run a blog, comment links no longer active. These may need manually updating to prevent confused customers. Also they can lead to your site slowing, reduce customer experience and website SEO Rank dropping.
Install New Theme
We can recommend and Implement a New Theme if your current theme is not supported anymore. (Cost of theme is NOT included, we simply inform, recommend and Install once approved/purchased.)
Theme & WordPress Updates
We check your site Weekly for any updates that are required. That includes the WordPress core, plugins and themes. And ensure they don’t break your website. Updates can cause conflicts or errors or may clash with web server settings such as PHP versions. We’ll take care of this all for you. We’ll do the upgrades (During GMT London Working hours)
Add New Plugins and Fix plugin errors
Our experts will also recommend and Upload Plugins your site may need to function better. We will also diagnose any issue with a plugin you may have installed – perhaps caused by a php error, or a conflict.
We automatically monitor your website for outages. If our systems pick up an outage, then they notify our technical team who look immediately into the cause.
Set up WordPress SSL
SSL certificates can cause problems with your WordPress if not installed properly. They also can cause Mixed content problems which lead to “Insecure site” blocks. All content should run through https://, and non-secure links should be redirected to the secure version. We can help you with this! (T & C apply – Depending on Site Size and How much “Mixed Content” and error warnings Show up!)
On top of our regular updates, we scan your website for known WordPress vulnerabilities. In addition, we scan your files for any hints of malicious code, and check your site on safe browsing checklists.
Install Custom Payment Gateways
Implemented and install a custom payment gateway, with specific required fields for e-Commerce and Standard Sites. (These are Extensions/Plugins and the Cost is Separate from Value Plan fee.)

File uploads can either error or silently fail. This is usually a simple fix – either the upload path or folder permissions. Let us get it working as intended.
And So much more
We don’t just support WordPress. K-Web Design Solutions is a complete support company, so we can also help with email fetching, domains, DNS & more. The reason we can offer all of this from just $79.99/month, is because we do it at scale.
