Origin Smart Marketing WordPress Care Plan!
Your backup plugins will generate full backups of your site’s database and WordPress files. The backups will be stored off-site to a secure Google Drive account so if there is ever a failure on your website server, your backups are still safe and can be used to get your website back up and running. Depending on your hosting and your plan they may also create a daily backup like Kinsta hosting, which is stored for a minimum of 14 days.
We will perform monthly updates to plugins, themes and WordPress itself to reduce the risk of security issues. We typically perform monthly website updates in the last half of the month. We’ll review your site once it is updated to ensure all updates were installed successfully and haven’t adversely affected your site. If we spot any issues, we resolve them immediately.
We will do a monthly check to make sure your site is being indexed by Google, not blacklisted, and contains no page errors within Google Search Console. If a serious issue is identified, the client will be notified to determine how to proceed.
We will add a security scanning tool to your site to send us alerts about high volume failed login attempts and to look for modifications to the core files as provided by WordPress.org. If we do identify or suspect a problem, you will be notified to direct us on how to proceed. Our basic WP Care Plan does not include malware support, removal, or firewall protection. If you’re interested in a higher-security protection plan, let’s chat further!
Sucuri Plans offers malware removal and firewall protection.
Kinsta Hosting offers malware removal and Cloudflare firewall protection.
Credit Card Reminder
Your site can be shut down due to an expired or canceled credit card on your domain registrar or hosting account. So, it’s important to keep your credit cards in your hosting accounts updated! If we have access, we will do our best to help keep an eye on this by including your credit card expiration info on your WP Care Plan Report.
Annual Licenses for Plugins
Origin Smart Marketing uses plugins to enhance the user experience and functionality of your website. Many plugins come with annual price tag. If Origin Smart Marketing has an agency license key for a plugin, its cost is rolled into your WordPress Care Plan. But if you choose to cancel your WordPress Care Plan, it will be your responsibility to purchase your own annual license keys for each plugin that requires one.

Why do I need maintenance for my WordPress site?
Your WordPress website needs regular maintenance to perform as it should. Updates are always being made to WordPress itself as well as themes and plugins. Keeping your WordPress installation up-to-date is extremely important, especially since so many WordPress updates are security fixes and patches that will prevent potential exploits of the vulnerabilities of your website or blog.
Because WordPress is so widely used, it is constantly being targeted by hackers who will try to break into your site and wreak havoc. As soon the WordPress developers find these vulnerabilities, they create patches to fix them, leading to regular updates that will keep your WordPress installation clean and safe.
If you do not keep your WordPress installation current, you run the risk of becoming the next victim to malicious attacks that can easily be prevented by keeping your WordPress up-to-date. Let us free you from worrying about your website maintenance so you can focus on your business. By staying on our WordPress maintenance you leave the technical details and the worrying to us!
