Clients who opt for our Standard WPEngine hosting account will automatically benefit from a wealth of support and maintenance services normally reserved for ‘Premium website maintenance agreements’, which includes automated WordPress updates, daily backups, malware scanning and staging servers.
For that extra level of maintenance and security, our WPEngine Plus hosting offers added support directly from our studio. We’ll monitor your site’s theme and plugins and keep everything up-to-date. If a plugin is no longer functioning, we’ll replace it with a suitable alternative. Brighton WP will also update your theme when a new version become available.
WPEngine offer a different type of relationship with their clients and agencies like ours. The feeling is we are all on the same team, so no passing the buck of responsibility between developer and host when there is a problem with a 3rd party plugin,as these issues always end in heart ache for the website owner and put a strain on the developer/client relationship.
So whilst WPEngine are not the cheapest on the market, in our opinion, they are the best!
For those site owners who have maintenance requirements that stretch a little further, we offer Maintenance & Support contracts based on pre purchasing development time in bulk.
With a minimum of just 20 hours per year, you benefit from 25%oOff our normal development rate. That’s £60 per hour to use as and when you see fit with no minimum monthly spend. You can use your time all at once, or at any time spread over 12 months. (Minimum time is 30 mins per support request).
Use your time to develop a new feature on your site, redesign a page or anything else, the rate is the same throughout.
