WordPress Updates Care Plans – insurance and more time for you

Updating WordPress themes and plugins is risky

Simply updating your WordPress, themes and plugins is a risky task.

One never knows what changes will bring the updated plugin or theme to your site. And you never know how will the updated theme/plugins interact with each other or what new conflicts might appear.

  • What if your contact form breaks?
  • What if your checkout breaks?!
  • What if your checkout breaks on mobile only?
  • What if your website doesn’t run for 1-2 days?

And the real question is:

What is your website worth to you?

Worry free WordPress website care plans

You can take the update burden out of your head now by signing up to a worry free ongoing contract for WordPress updates. This service will give:

  • more time for you
  • an insurance that your website will not break after updates

More Time for you

You can go ahead and update your WordPress plugins and theme. But if you are reading this, you already probably know that it will always take you more time than you planned.

Therefore, we are giving you more time by thoroughly checking your website after update on:

  • Chrome
  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Edge
  • iPad
  • Android phone

Insurance for your website

Even if you’d be willing to put the necessary time into checking all your website details on all the above-mentioned browsers, still this is a tedious process. After checking 2 browsers, most certainly the rest you’ll just skip because you’ll get bored.

We don’t have this issue because:

  • We are using some cutting edge technology to create full page screenshots of the top pages on your website before and after the update and compare them. If something breaks, we look with our own eyes and analyze the situation.
  • We use automated scripts to make sure your forms and your checkout process work after the update.
  • We have a highly optimized process and a big checklist in places that takes into account many possible details and possible pitfalls.

Have you ever seen a computer or script getting bored? I bet you didn’t.

Moreover, chances are much higher that you’ll miss something if you do the checks manually than if this task is performed by an automated machine.

We update your WordPress website for you
