WordPress Maintenance Support
“Websites today are like living, breathing, machines, just like a road car, as we all have to provide maintenance and care to make sure our cars are up to a standard of quality to drive on the road.”
This analogy is the same for WordPress websites today, and this is why we offer our WordPress Maintenance Support for you. The pace of changes on the web are very rapid, and the building blocks of your brand new website can soon become outdated overnight.
At Cosmik Carrot we offer our ‘Wordpress Maintenance Support’ package, that combats these concerns for you, so you can continue to add the content to your new website, and watch it grow over time, without worrying about having to make updates to your site.
Your website can be open to security attacks like Malware, Trojans, Viruses, and even Brute Force attacks. It is imperative that you have a website that is consistently kept up to date all year round, with good solid security. Failure to do so can cause catastrophic issues for your website that can then cause knock-on effects for your business or organisation.
Is your website protected against the following?
Malware is a term used to refer to a variety of forms of hostile or intrusive software.
Trojans can appear in plugins and themes, which may have backdoors, send out spam, or inject hidden links into your website.
If your website has been hacked, hackers can leave viruses in many shapes and forms. Finding where they are can be very time intensive.
Brute Force Attacks
As it says, brute force attacks will keep on trying to gain entry to your website once the hacker knows where your login page is.
As part of our WordPress Maintenance Support we also include two regular backups of your site.
The first backup is a daily backup of your database, and the second backup is a full backup of your site every other day, which means you can continue to make updates to your site, without worrying about losing any data. In the event of anything going wrong, we are on hand to put your site back to how it was previously.

We introduced our WordPress Maintenance Support for the site updates alone at the beginning of 2015, as we found that the moment a new site is completed and handed over to a client, the responsibility of keeping the site up to date had always fallen short by the client. This then results in a new site being out of date, and open to security flaws, which then results in additional charges to fix the site when an issue arises on the site.
To combat this additional task within your business, or organisation, as part of our WordPress Maintenance Support we are committed to providing daily updates when required to your site. If any conflicts occur, we will handle the development to make sure everything is updated.

As WordPress is an open source content management system, there are parts of the platform that have become hackable due to its popularity in recent years, as the WordPress platform now accounts for over 23% of the web. Part of our WordPress Maintenance Support involves increasing the security of your WordPress site to avoid any possible attacks. No website is 100% secure against any attacks, however we aim to bolster your WordPress security to reduce any risk to your site with 35+ improvements. One specific example is that if there are any IP addresses that try to gain access to your site, we are notified and that specific IP address will then be blocked immediately as part of your daily WordPress Maintenance Support.

What Our Clients Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
Credit Canada Debt Solutions, a not-for-profit credit counselling service, has employed the services of Cosmik Carrot for the redesign of the website of Credit Education Week Canada. Ben Bradley performed this task admirably, and did so under some tight time pressures. We would like to mention that on multiple occasions, our management team did a re-think of what we wanted for the website. When this was communicated to Ben, he was always capable of getting something back to us in a very short period of time. Also, one of the primary functions of this website relates to the use of webforms - either for entries for a contest, or for submissions for funding of events. In the case of the latter webform, Ben has set us up so that there will be significant time savings on our end in the future. We are very pleased with the work that Cosmik Carrot has done for us, and will use their services in the future.17/10/17

In addition to adding Event Espresso, he has also greatly improved my site speed and design by changing WordPress themes.
