Irish Website MaintenanceMaintenance and support for WordPress and other websites
WORDPRESS WEBSITE MAINTENANCE
I offer WordPress Website Maintenance to all my customers. Depending on the package you choose you get 1 to 12 months of free maintenance. After this initial period you can purchase a WordPress Website Maintenance Package for another year.
WHAT DO YOU GET WITH A MAINTENANCE CONTRACT?
- Daily backup of all WordPress files and plugins as well as database backup if you host your website with us.
- Monthly backup if you host your website elsewhere
- Continuing free email support
- Regular updates of WordPress and plugins
- Minor cosmetic changes
WHY IS UPDATING WORDPRESS IMPORTANT?
WordPress is much like Microsoft Windows; very popular and really quite secure, but a hot target for hackers to go after. With over 25% of the web running on WordPress, hackers are always looking for a way to get into your installation. Fortunately, with thousands of developers backing it, any security holes that are discovered in WordPress are fixed almost instantly.
Therefore it is important that you update your WordPress, plugins and theme to be able to take advantage of each fix. It is equally important to make a backup of your WordPress website regularly.
MAINTENANCE CONTRACT OR NOT?
You can opt to purchase a maintenance contract with Artvaark Design and I will take care of these updates and backups as well as continue my free support.
If you choose to update the website yourself I will send you instructions on how to do this. You will need to check your website at least once a week to find out if there are any updates to WordPress, plugins or the theme. Any technical support from me will be charged at €40/hour with a minimum of €40/request.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
I charge €10/month for a maintenance contract. This Maintenance Contract will be paid for annually (€120) and will include technical support which is solely done by email to you, not to any third party. Maintenance also includes monthly website backups, plugin and WordPress updates, and cosmetic changes (if needed) but it does not include the day-to-day running of the website. This should be done by you.
MAINTENANCE OF OTHER WEBSITES
It might be that you have a website already but don’t have the time or knowledge to maintain it. I can maintain your website for you. I have experience with a multitude of Content Management Systems like Drupal, Joomla, Weebly, CMS Made Simple, as well as E-Commerce systems like Open Cart, Presta Shop, Magento etc.

To make it easier for you to decide which type of website is right for you I have created four WordPress packages. From a Do It Yourself version to a website that caters for everything you need. I can also create a bespoke website with custom features like event booking systems, business directories or even your own social website like Facebook.
