Frequently asked questions
DO I REALLY NEED A WORDPRESS MAINTENANCE SERVICE?
Yes. Here’s why:
(1) Time really is money.
Who has the time to make sure WordPress, your theme, and all your plugins stay up to date? And who has the time (or the know-how) to get things back in order when something goes wrong?
And here’s the deal. Those hours aren’t making you money. They’re costing you money.
And for what? To save a couple of hundred bucks per month?
Sign up for the Saturn 5, connect the lead generation/email opt-in tool to your email marketing software, and create a sales funnel for your business. Or take a social media marketing course and learn to use your social media analytics and management tool (Saturn 5 or higher). Or brainstorm 5 potential clients to cold-call and/or send targeted emails.
Just do something that will make money and grow your business.
From our own experience, that’s time much better spent than worrying about whether your website is live, healthy, and secure.
We gotcha covered on that.
(2) Hacking happens (and it can be catastrophic when it does).
At nearly 30% market share, WordPress is far and away the most widely used website content management system (CMS) in the world. As such, it’s developed for more broadly than any other CMS, which makes it (in our opinion) the ideal platform for business and blog websites.
The drawback? As expected with the big dog, WordPress is targeted by hackers more frequently than any other CMS in the world.
That’s why we built SkyrocketWP on the rock-solid Google Cloud Platform and have implemented security measures that have kept safe the 100+ websites we manage for the duration of their time with us.
(3) Your (should-be) clients demand speed.
No one waits on a slow site. Not us. Not you. Not your clients.
In fact, half of your should-be clients will be frustrated after just 2 seconds and they’ll abandon it altogether after 3. So, one second can be the difference between earning a client and (functionally) funneling them to your competitors.
Don’t be that business!
(4) Downtime reflects upon more than just your website.
Finding your site live isn’t an added bonus for your clients. It’s an expectation. And a frustrating experience with your website is a frustrating experience with your company. A live, healthy website reflects a live, healthy company.
In other words, if a live, healthy, fast, secure website is important to you, then you need a WordPress maintenance service.
WHAT DOES YOUR WEB HOSTING INCLUDE?
- Unlimited pageviews/mo.
- Unlimited visits/mo.
- 7GB bandwidth/mo. (a LOT)
- 3GB local storage (roughly the size of a 2,000 product e-commerce site)
- SSL certificate
- Freedom to add multiple websites by utilizing WordPress multisite (let us know and we can set that up for you).
WHAT ARE THE TECH SPECS OF YOUR HOSTING?
The web hosting component of our WordPress maintenance service:
- Runs PHP7 (translation: it’s the latest technology that’s crazy fast)
- Is GeoIP enabled (translation: your site can serve visitors based upon geographic location)
- Allows for staging environments (translation: you can edit, build, or test your site on a copy rather than the live site)
- Limits disk writing (i.e., it’s difficult for theme and plugin vulnerabilities to be exploited)
WE GET A LOT OF TRAFFIC. CAN YOUR HOSTING BE SCALED TO MEET OUR NEEDS?
Absolutely. We currently host a website with more than 13,000 blog posts and 400,000 visitors/mo.
With 49 active plugins, analytics tracking codes, and several resource-heavy ad scripts, the site loads in just 927ms. According to Pingdom, that’s faster than 90% of the websites they’ve tested.
If you want to beef up your hosting, contact us for a custom quote.
HOW GOOD IS YOUR WEB HOSTING?
There is a lot we could say about our hosting, but the simple fact that your website will be hosted on the same server we entrust with our own entirely web-based business says all that needs to be said.
But just in case it doesn’t, SkyrocketWP hosting is built upon the same platform that hosts Coca-Cola, HTC, Evernote, and Sony Music.
HOW DOES THE PAGE LOAD SPEED GUARANTEE WORK?
If your site on SkyrocketWP doesn’t earn the fastest speed out of 5 consecutive speed tests against your current host, then we’ll promptly refund your first month’s payment–no questions asked.
Here’s how it works:
(1) We’ll use Pingdom to run 5 consecutive page speed tests on your website before we migrate it.
(2) Then, we’ll run 5 consecutive page speed tests on your website after we migrate it.
(3) If your post-migration website doesn’t have the single fastest speed out of all 10 (total) tests, then we’ll refund your first month’s payment. Of course, that doesn’t obligate you to cancel your subscription. But you’ll get your first payment back nonetheless.
We’ve enjoyed keeping a running tally. Currently, we’re undefeated on more than 100 challenges. Our service is literally the fastest we’ve ever seen, but we never expected to be undefeated on 100+ migrations, most of which are coming from heavy hitters like WP Engine and Media Temple… but we’re pretty pumped about it! 😉
IS EMAIL INCLUDED WITH YOUR WEB HOSTING?
No. Our focus is WordPress so we have deliberately stayed out of services that extend beyond WordPress (e.g. email accounts). That said, we host our email with G Suite and absolutely love it.
DO YOU SUPPORT WORDPRESS MULTISITE?
Yes! And that’s not hypothetical. We actively host, maintain, and support a number of WordPress multisites.
DO YOU SUPPORT E-COMMERCE SITES?
Yes. While we support all WordPress e-commerce platforms, we specialize in WooCommerce, which is very likely what you’re using.
DO YOU WORK WITH WORDPRESS.COM SITES?
Because of the limitations of WordPress.com, we’re only able to work with (self-hosted) WordPress.org websites.
DO YOU OFFER 24/7 TECH SUPPORT?
Web hosting issues are supported 24/7 via phone or chat. Non-hosting support is available from 8am-5:30pm CST Monday – Friday. That said, we just don’t get a lot of WordPress maintenance support requests. Our sites tend to rock along at optimal levels, which empowers our clients to run their businesses instead of flushing hours submitting support requests.
CAN YOU RESTORE MY SITE TO A PREVIOUS VERSION?
Backup and restore is a staple of the SkyrocketWP WordPress maintenance service. We keep up to 2 months of daily backups to which we can restore your site at any point.
WHAT DO YOU DO IF MY SITE IS HACKED?
We monitor the security of your site in real-time. If your site is hacked, then we will immediately begin work to repair it. If the repair doesn’t work, we will restore a backup of your site from within the last 24 hours and work to harden your website against future attacks.
WHAT HAPPENS IF ONE OF MY THEMES OR PLUGINS IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED?
While we cannot replace your theme and plugin developers, we will continue monitoring your themes and plugins for issues.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY SITE BREAKS?
Simple. We get it back up and running. We’re here so you don’t have to worry.
IF MY SITE HAS MALWARE BEFORE I MIGRATE TO SKYROCKETWP, IS MALWARE REMOVAL INCLUDED?
If your website has malware before migrating your hosting to SkyrocketWP, it’s removal is not covered under your agreement. In that case, we recommend a service like Sucuri, which has an excellent support team and a track record of getting the job done.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept any credit or debit card.
DOES SIGNING UP LOCK ME INTO A CONTRACT?
No. You are free to discontinue our WordPress maintenance services at any time, although we have no idea why anyone would want to do that. Seriously.
HOW CAN I UPGRADE MY PLAN?
You can login to your account at any time to upgrade or downgrade your plan. Upgrades produce in our office Super Bowl-style cheering, you-just-turned-5-years-old-style confetti, and MC Hammer-style dance moves.
