Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need an ongoing plan when my web host updates my WordPress version?
Web hosting providers may or may not update your WordPress software for you (please check their policy), but all web hosts will not update your plugins.
WordPress plugins are created by multiple authors, and are consistently updated to newer versions to comply with the latest version of WordPress, or to address security issues and bugs. It is not guaranteed that the mandated updates to WordPress will not break the website, nor that plugins will continue to function if not updated.
For this reason, having a trained web specialist on hand to monitor the website is necessary to update plugins, rollback plugins, replace plugins or even adjust the theme to continue optimal performance.
Can I cancel anytime?
Yes, you can cancel anytime. You are under no obligation to continue the ongoing service. We just ask you give us [XX days] notice so we can carry out our last thorough update of the website and remove our administrator credentials.
How do I contact you when I have a problem?
We provide a support ticket desk for quick turnaround and tracking of all support requests. You can submit all requests to support@[webcompany] and we will reply within normal business hours.
